Illinois Skill Schools (ISS) is offering its skill-specific soccer training for 7 - 14-year-olds throughout the winter months. The program will be held on Sundays, from 3 - 4:30 p.m. for ages 7 - 11 and 4:30 - 6 p.m. for ages 12 - 14, beginning November 4 through February 24, at North Shore Country Day School.
"The program is based on the 'numbers approach,'" said ISS Program Director Kyle Jones. “The sessions are designed to develop the whole player with an emphasis on skill and individuality.” Jones founded ISS to create the most comprehensive, effective and innovative skill-specific soccer training.
Players will receive weekly training sessions, a training kit, online training resources, a skill DVD, skills testing/feedback, a sport performance session and discounts on spring/summer camps. The membership fee is $125 with a monthly fee of $99.
Jones is a former Cornell University soccer player, and has specialized in skill development for more than 10 years. During the past two years, while working as the Head Coach at The Manchester College in Manchester, England, he collaborated with some of the finest English professional academy coaches to develop the ISS program. Jones is now the Soccer Coach at North Shore Country Day School.
