Soccer Quest Program Guide

Kamloops Arena Soccer – North America’s Top Indoor Soccer Game!

Learn how to improve your individual soccer technical skills in this fast paced most popular indoor soccer sport in North America. The ball is very rarely out of play and certain playing rules mean you must play the game on the floor. As the great coach Brian Clough once said “If god had wanted soccer to be played in the clouds he would have put grass up there” 2 minutes shifts are the norm in our new heated/ air conditioned facility you will really get a great workout. Subs are made on the fly, there are no crashing into boards as this results in 2 minute penalties and our 3G turf is great to play on. Locker rooms, concession/bar, pro shop and a full time licensed coaching staff mean all you have to do is sit and watch your kids improve their soccer skills. For those adults we have leagues and programs for all ages from 16yrs and up. So register early to avoid disappointment.
