2020 Winter Indoor Clinics
For fourteen years the FC Mirage Winter Indoor Clinic Program has been a successful way of integrating new players into travel soccer and serving as a jumpstart for new players to join existing F.C. Mirage Teams for the indoor &/or spring season. Both introductory and advanced clinics serve as a way to help existing players strengthen their individual abilities and skills. Players are pushed to improve on their first touch and ball control, due to the different way in which a ball bounces and moves on a futsal style floor as compared to grass/turf. Focused attention to detail gets results.
Winter clinics are the last FC Mirage program opportunity for new players to improve their individual skills and game understanding prior to spring tryouts for the upcoming 2020-2021 Season.

Introductory Clinics: For younger players new to travel soccer, or existing players looking to re-visit early building blocks they might be missing in their play. The overall goal is to provide assistance to players who want to further their progress in soccer by strengthening their balance, basic skills, body coordination, decision-making, endurance and overall game play. Sessions consist of introductory “Deep Training” where players learn through repetition of making errors/mistakes and then correcting them. Serving as a low-pressure introduction to travel soccer, new players have integrated into existing teams through attending indoor clinics and/or gained experience in the FC Mirage system to prepare them for the upcoming season’s tryouts. These clinics are generally for players ages 6 to 10.
Advanced Clinics: Two groups: 9 – 12 yrs old – advanced clinics are for those looking to improve their individual skills. Players work through more intense “Deep Training” sessions and are pushed to the edge of their capabilities. Training in this dynamic capacity leads to players improving on skills at a faster pace, as they learn through making errors/mistakes and correcting them quickly. Advanced clinics focus on rapid improvement of individual skill, personal fitness, and speed of decision making. These clinics are generally for players ages 9-12 (8 & 13 year old advanced players can attend Advanced Clinics – if you have any questions on which session to attend, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org)
