Compete for fun. Compete Against Yourself. Compete Against Your Friends.
Race against the clock as you blaze through the slalom course! Each participant gets two attempts at dribbling through the course as the stopwatch ticks. The total score is recorded in tenths of a second. Faster is better, but you have to keep control!
Launch a shot at the target to score big points!
Each participant attempts five shots from either 8 or 12 yards from goal (depending on age). Each shot is taken on a regulation-sized goal with a target net that designates point totals for each zone. Pick the easy shot for the sure points, or try and hit the upper 90 for a big payoff!
Nail a pass through the tightest zone for accuracy!
Each player attempts four total passes, each from ten, fifteen, twenty and thirty yard distances, through a designated zones. Each space between the flags – or zone – is worth a different amount of points. The further away the zone, the more points it is worth.
How the Soccer Skills Competition Is Scored
The Competition emphasizes the 3 most important fundamental skills of soccer: dribbling, passing and shooting. Participants go through a series of 3 drills in an attempt to achieve the highest score.
Each skills category will award winners in each age group for dribbling, passing and shooting.
