TJAY Soccer Patch Program Details and Move Description

The TJAY Soccer Club Patch Program was designed to provide kids an incentive for executing various moves vital to the game of soccer.   Players proudly display their patches as a sign of accomplishment.  While many young players (and parents) are focused on scoring goals it’s our goal to encourage players to master the various moves thus increasing their skill-level and over-all confidence when handling the ball.
