The Facility

 
 

Our facility offers a unique combination of field, facility, and staff to develop players to the highest level.

1)  We are a dedicated and environmentally stable field. Our turf field is located inside a 10,000 square foot enclosed building. This setting provides the optimum conditions for teaching and training players of all levels. Soccer is a sport where the ball is in almost constant contact with the field so it is important that the field be smooth and not affect the movement of the ball. By removing variability and imperfections in field conditions,  players are able to concentrate on learning and mastering their ball handling skills.  When you put developing players in an environment with poor field conditions, a great deal of time and energy is spent on compensating for the motion of the ball over obstacles and imperfections in the field.  Our facility eliminates this issue and lets players focus on improving their game. 

2)  The field at Off The Wall Soccer is built out of New Generation Elite Turf.  The same turf is used in many professional soccer facilities.   It is a non-infill style turf which means that it is padded instead of being filled with rubber.  This gives you the same grass-like cushioned feel without the messy black rubber of an infill field.   

3)  Off the Wall Soccer offers year round play.  We offer leagues for all ages winter, spring, summer and fall.  And the best part is, no more cancellations due to weather or bundling up to play on a cold rainy day!  

4)  We play small-sided games. Smaller teams and fewer players on the field create the ideal structure for teaching and practicing the game of soccer.  Small sided games are an essential component of coaching and are recommended consistently by Youth Soccer Associations for developing players of all ages.  They are also a critical part of any coach licensing program.  Best of all, they generate the most fun for the players!  

5)  Our field takes it a step further with our arena-style wall system and high netting. There are no throw-ins or corner kicks - just fun playing it "off the wall".  When the ball stays in play, players can focus on playing the game. More touches lead to better skills which leads to more success and a greater enjoyment of the game!

The Owner

 
 

Steve Biles moved to Jasper in 2004 when he and his wife, Sharon, opened a dog boarding facility.  In the Fall of 2005, he began coaching Under-12 coed soccer at the Pickens County Parks & Recreation Department.  At this time, the soccer program was very small and teams played in the outfield of the baseball fields. U12 was the oldest age available to play. In the spring of 2007, Steve founded the boys and girls soccer programs at Jasper Middle School.   He served as their head soccer coach until 2013.  In 2010, Steve started the first Under-19 team.  This team initially played in the recreational division, and in later seasons moved up to play in the select division.  The soccer programs in and around Pickens County have grown by leaps and bounds since Steve first became involved in 2005.  He has been a big part of its growth and development, and through this indoor soccer facility will continue to develop the love of soccer in this area.
