Clinic 45 – Ball Control & First Touch
It is often communicated that a player’s first touch is the most important touch when receiving the ball. A soccer player receives the ball more times than they dribble or shoot. A good first touch on the ball sets up a good dribble, a good pass, or a good shot.
All core ball control and first touch fundamentals will be taught in the Ball Control and First Touch Clinic 45.

Clinics 55 are recommended for players looking to understand the concept of working as a team and therefore players should already be familiar with basic passing technique on the individual level.
