About Kahler’s School of Soccer

Kahler’s School of Soccer equips the athletes through relative and precise soccer-related drills that will help drive future success. The school serves as a platform to elevate the overall individual ball skills of the developing soccer player. By incorporating an age-specific agenda, the athletes’ skills and knowledge will grow and flourish.

The sessions are once a week for 4 weeks in duration, with each session focusing on a specific soccer skill during those 4 weeks.  Each day, the session will be split in two parts. The first part will teach the student a specific skill. In the second part of the session, the student will apply that skill in a scrimmage environment.

Quarterly, we will offer a one day camp to help refresh and refine ball skills.   The one day camp is comprised of various skill sets and drills that will help your child grow towards a more developed soccer player.  Be on the lookout on the website!
