Shamrock Soccer Academy aims to develop youth players at their own pace through patient teaching. Our experienced trainers will improve each players technical ability while educating them individually as to how the game is truly meant to be played.
Our mission is to help players develop correctly, first by creating a technically skilled player who can be comfortable on the ball and second, by making them into better decision-makers as they become more confident in their abilities. Our goal has always been to improve each individual both technically and mentally. Everything we do is designed to develop each player into becoming the very best player they can be.
We focus on providing discipline to all players in:
- Good Technique
- Good Movement
- Comfort Under Pressure
- The Ability to Play with Both Feet
Learning Foot Skills - The Drag Back
When your find yourself on the pitch surrounded by other players, with not a lot of room to move, you can use a foot technique called the "Drag Back" to drag back on the ball and change your direction.
To "Drag Back" Put your foot on top of the ball, roll the ball back and move off in another direction.
