In order to encourage everyone to stay on the ball and connected to each other during the difficult time all of us are going through, PCEFC and our Technical Director Oliver Heald have put together the first of series of skills videos for all our players. Each Friday, we will post a NEW set of drills to practice over the week…so come back here to watch and learn.

CONTEST: Watch Oliver’s video and practice.  Then post a segment video showing off your skills and you will be entered into a raffle for some PCEFC prize swag! We will do a weekly draw, winners will be announced on Fridays – so be sure to come back each week to work on your skills with our drills!!
