Ball Mastery participants work on soccer skills in a productive and fun learning environment with professional coaches.

Ball Mastery is offered in the fall and spring to Rec League players as an additional practice per week with professional ASA coaches. 

Pre-season Ball Mastery is an accelerated season to prepare kids for the kickoff of the Rec League. Open to PreK-2nd graders. In-season Ball Mastery provides an extra practice per week for PreK-2nd graders who are interested in getting extra touches on the ball. 

The primary objective of Ball Mastery is to create a learning environment that is both productive and fun. ASA strives to create a framework for children to learn how to train and follow directions while have fun learning the game. ASA’s focus is on improving general coordination and body awareness, improving individual ball control and dribbling skills, introducing passing concepts and fostering creativity.
