Free Player Clinics

Each clinic is a great way for your player(s) to learn new skills, techniques and receive valuable instructions from the AZSC Thunder Pro-coaching staff.  We suggest to our coaches to use the clinic as your team's practice for the week.  Coaches are highly encouraged to attend the clinic and offer their assistance to the Thunder Pro-coaching staff, as extra coaches training during the season.  All coaches who do help out will receive a free coach’s tee shirt!  

Each player & coach should come prepared to practice for the 1 1/2 hr. training and bring with them a soccer ball, cleats, comfortable athletic clothing and water.

 Date & Time to be determined.

Coaches receive a FREE coaches tee shirt for participating in the clinic.  Additional Coaching Education:  Please attend the FREE Player Clinic during the season for extra coach training with our Thunder Pro-Coaches, see dates above for Player Clinics.
