We are excited to have college soccer coaches coming to Benton Community to put on a soccer clinic for both the High School and Youth players not only in Benton Community but the surrounding communities and schools. Please find the form below for the Soccer Academy Clinic.
The season is soon ready to start. First practice date is March 2015. Please prepare yourself by doing cardio and other fitness routines. Getting as many touches with the soccer ball is critical to help you prepare for the season.
Please check out the updates on the subpages. Make sure you have turned in all expected forms prior to the start of the season. Make sure you have turned in your concussion form and school physical to the school nurse. Your emergency card should be updated if needed.

"You only get out of something what you put into it"
While every player wants to step on the field and be one of the best players in the game, not every player is willing to do what it takes to be that player. if your goal is to be the best that you can be, individual training has to become an integral part of your daily soccer nutrition. Players have to be prepared to practice their skills at home, and outside of organized practice. All Benton players are expected to dedicate time to developing their skills outside of organized practice.
Many players say they don't know what to do in order to improve their skills. Others simply don't feel it is necessary to work on their skill development. However, those who put the time in at working on their game usually show TREMENDOUS IMPROVEMENT. We know because we have numerous Benton players already working hard at developing their skills at home.
I know of players that are running every day to improve their endurance and speed. Others are working on their foot skills, juggling, kicking, passing, etc. It is easy to fall prey to doing nothing. The ones that work thru this are the ones that are setting the standard for others to follow.
Everyone wants to be the starter "Varsity Player" only a few are willing to do what it takes. Are you one of those players?
Please make sure to check out MY RESOURCE section to see links to some of our favorite sites.
There is also connections to sites to help train goalkeeping, defender, midfield, striker positions.
