Bennington Soccer Club (BENSC) welcomes our campers to this year’s BENSC Winter Academy.


BENSC Winter Academy is open to any player 7U through 13U who would like to improve their skills in a game like environment. For the first time, small sided indoor soccer games will be played and overseen by the clubs Directors of Coaching. Players will learn both individual and team skills which will improve their play on the field. Game time instruction will occur with the emphasis on working together as a team, proper formation, strategy, offensive and defensive minded decisions, passing, and sportsmanship. Teams will not be predetermined and will be formed the day of the event.


If you are interested in having fun while learning the finer aspects of the game, sign up today!


BENSC Winter Academy will be held at Bennington Elementary on Saturday mornings between 8:00am and 1:00pm.


Game/training times for each age group will be determined once registration ends (so the club can have a final head count for each age group) and will be posted on the website. Boys and Girls who participate in the BENSC Winter Academy will play together; however, an attempt will be made to separate the two whenever possible in order to create a more realistic game-like scenario.
