Heart of the City is excited to share the game of soccer with children throughout Lake County who want to learn the game, make friends and have fun while being active.
Each week’s training will focus on a specific topic, such as ball mastery, 1 versus 1 attacking and defending, and shooting. There will be a weekly round-robin tournament to end every session for kids to implement the learned skills during game play. The program is led by Heart of the City’s licensed professional coaches and HOTC Elite travel club high school athletes.
