Start standing out in your soccer team in just 28 days
The at home soccer clinic for the busy soccer family, leaving plenty of time for homework, chores and play
It can be tough seeing your child’s head drop when the coach calls them off to sit on the bench again. Meanwhile the ‘good kids’ are playing full games, scoring great goals, and getting cheered by all the other parents. They love playing soccer, but it sometimes feels like they are just there to make up the numbers.
Imagine if your child was one of the ‘good kids’. Scoring important goals, running past defenders with the ball at their feet, getting identified by talent scouts, being one of the team's stand out players that the coach doesn’t want to bench. It’d be nice to see their beaming smile after the game as everyone is cheering them.

Hi, I'm Ben, I'll be your coach for this program. I currently hold an Australian Youth C Level License. I have also been lucky enough to have worked with Liverpool FC International Academy. I spend my coaching time at community level, working with young athletes from very beginners to highly advanced players.
For years I’ve tried helping kids step up to that next level, but I’ve had mixed results. Most people think that to be a stand out player you need great technique in shooting, passing, dribbling etc. So that’s what I used to focus on, but I was wrong.
A stand out player, is a stand out decision maker. They consistently do the right things at the right time.
But you can’t start making good decisions if you’re not confident when you get the ball at your feet.
In most games at any level, a player only has a split second to read the situation and do something when the ball comes to them. Players that have low ‘ball confidence’ spend those split seconds just trying to get control of the ball and not freak out. They’re head is down looking at their feet and they don’t see what’s happening around them. They don’t even get a chance to make a soccer decision before they’ve lost the ball.
By becoming completely calm and confident with the ball at their feet, a player has SO much more time to look around, spot the runners, dodge the defenders and make a good soccer decision. You don’t need perfect technique to score a match winning goal, but you need to be able to make the correct decision to do so.
That’s where this clinic was born. Allowing players to focus on building confidence with the ball at their feet, so they can in turn start playing the right passes, slipping pass defenders, scoring winning goals, getting more game time and start standing out in their team.
All you need is a ball...
Specifically designed to be done at home, either indoors or outside in only 12 minutes a day for 4 weeks. No need to organize drop offs and pickups and leaving plenty of time still for homework, chores, and play. The clinic can be done inside in socks or barefoot (Apartment friendly), or outside in shoes or soccer boots, all you need is a ball.
16x more ball touches a week...
In a typical team practice, a player gets about 100 touches on the ball. This clinic is hyper focused to get over 600 quality ball touches a day in only 12 minutes. These quality ball touches are with all parts of the foot to develop all aspects of ball control and manipulation. Plus you get to learn some cool tricks.
Start seeing results in games...
This specifically designed, hyper focused clinic fast tracks the player's ball skills so you can start seeing improvements in weekend matches after only a few weeks. This clinic builds a player's confidence with the ball at their feet, which has huge knock on effects in a game performance.
Week 1: Brazilian Basics
We start the clinic off with an introduction to South American flair. We build on the very basic ball touches and start adding some Brazilian flavour, it's easier than you might think. Inspired by some of Brazil's greats such as Ronaldo and Ronaldinho.
Week 2: Deceptive Touches
Moving into the second week we start learning to deceive our opponents with very subtle ball touches and body movements. Deceptive touches are what makes players like Messi, Hazard and Salah so destructive in games.
Week 3: Changing Direction
With the ball at our feet during the game, we sometimes need to make evasive maneuvers when under pressure from a defender. Being able to quickly change direction to avoid trouble is a key skill for any player during a game.
Week 4: Pivot to attack
Starting to bring together ball touches and movements from the past 3 weeks, we can learn ways to spring an attack when we have the ball at our feet during a game.

I had a young girl who was fairly new to soccer, move to town and join our under 14s boys team who had been together for years. She became really upset because the boys stopped passing to her in games because she would usually lose the ball. So after team practise, for the next 4 weeks, we did a private 20 minute individual ball skill session (similar to this clinic).
Most of the boys in the team didn’t know she was doing this and after only 2 weeks, I started hearing comments about how much better she was, both from the players and the parents. By the 4 week mark, she was a different player… and the boys didn’t hesitate passing her the ball in the games.
To top it all off, she scored her first ever goal in the semi-final to send us through and I don’t think I’ve ever seen such joy and happiness in a player. I could probably say the same thing about her dad too.
