This schedule is typical of our program offerings each year. They are subject to change but are provided here to give you a snapshot of each program. All clinics will be overseen by LUSC DOC, Brendan Donahue, assisted by the same professional coaches that help coach our fall and spring team practices. There will be additional staff hired by the DOC to ensure a high quality of instruction. The clinics will maintain a coach to player ratio of 12 to 1. The clinics will be focusing on teaching a number of age-appropriate technical soccer skills. While the focus will be on skill development, this will be done in an enjoyable teaching environment using fun, small-sided games.
