About Our 6 Week Program

Where & When

Our classes meet 55 minutes a week for 6 weeks (Lil Boscos is 40 minutes). Training is held in Columbia, Glen Carbon and O'Fallon year round (Highland and Belleville in the winter only). We offer seven, 6 Week Training Programs sessions for your athlete throughout the year. VISIT OUR WHERE N WHEN PAGE for full details.

New Program Memberships

We’ve rebuilt our programs to offer more to the kids and make things easier for parents! All you need to do sign-up once and and then pay a monthly fee for our new membership. It works like Netflix, except your athlete can play all the soccer they want, rather than watch TV. 6 Week Program Members enjoy special events and training sessions. You can still purchase a single 6 Week Program if you wish.

Defending and Tackling – Teaches the players the correct footwork and body positioning to properly time their tackles. Players will increase their defending patience in 1v1 situations and improve their decision making abilities after winning the ball back for their team.

Ball Mastery – Enhances players’ confidence on the ball. Players will be challenged to use all parts of both feet to control the ball and feel comfortable with the ball in difficult game situations.

Moves and 1v1 Battles – Develops players to be dynamic with the ball and their body to get past defenders and create chances for their team. Players will master 2-3 moves, with multiple variations, and feel confident performing moves early to get past defenders.

1st Touch and Possession – Challenges players to think and play faster as they improve their first touch and decision making skills. Players will be encouraged to move their first touch into space and complete properly weighted passes to their open teammates.
