This unique soccer skills competition and event offers a fun and engaging opportunity for players of all ages (including adults!) to test their skills and compete in several fun challenges.
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. Your best time is recorded in tenths of a second. Faster is better, but you have to keep control! Don’t miss a cone or your score doesn’t count.
Scoring. Fastest time wins. Your best time of two attempts is scored. Player must make all cones. A player can go back and make up a cone but missing a cone without making it up results in a disallowed time.
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!
Scoring: Each player takes Five (5) shots on goal. Goal has a net with shot pockets. Players can choose where to shoot to maximize points.
Points are awarded as follows:
On goal: 5 points. (shot is placed on goal but doesn’t make a pocket)
Lower Corner: 15 points
Center Pocket: 20 points
Upper 90: 30 points
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 zone or small sided goal. Each goal is worth a different amount of points. The farther away the zone, the more points it is worth. Note: Younger ages may have varied distances to enhance the experience for young players.
Scoring: Points are awarded as follows.
10 yards: 5 points
15 yards: 10 points
20 yards: 15 points
30 yards: 25 points
How the Soccer Skills Competition Is Scored
The Competition emphasizes the three most important fundamental skills of soccer: dribbling, passing and shooting. Participants go through a series of three drills in an attempt to achieve the highest score in each event.
Each skills category will award winners in each age group for dribbling, passing and shooting.
