Skills Sessions

Saline FC is proud to offer technical classes to help refine various aspects of soccer skills.  Each Friday during the outdoor season we hold a finishing (shooting) class and a technical class.  Each of these focus on details to refine the associated skills, but combine at the end to practice with live reps of shooting and technical skills.
