In this 3-hour session participants will get the opportunity to learn new techniques and foot skills through drills and participate in small-sided games.

This two-hour clinic will run from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. on Jan. 22. Wisconsin players and coaches will be present to facilitate a relaxed learning atmosphere where attendees will work on the basics such as passing, dribbling, ball control and balance.
College Identification Clinic - SOLD OUT
The College Identification Clinic provides an opportunity for girls in grades 8-12 to show off their soccer skills on Sunday, Feb. 12 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This clinic will provide players with a greater understanding of the demands of a Division I Women's Soccer program.
