After another successful year, Lifestyle Beach Sports are giving kids the opportunity to learn more about beach soccer. Don't worry if you had missed out on previous clinics as there will be an array of soccer coaches on hand to guide you through. Players will be learning both basics and tough tricks of shooting, juggling, side volleys and keeping the ball in the air off the sand, but the main emphasis will be on balance and control which is essential for beach soccer.

Open to both boys and girls, the clinic will surely be an experience for everyone. Ages vary from 5 to 12, so the coaches will be divided to help with the different age groups.
