Summer Camp Options

Half Day:
This program is open to players of any age from 4-17. It is highly recommended for 4 & 5 year olds as they have a tough time making it through the full day.  Each day in this program you will receive technical skill development, play small sided games, and scrimmage.  Players will be grouped according to their age (and can be mixed in with full day players) and skill. Kids should bring water and snacks as we will be taking breaks throughout the session.

Full Day:
This camp is recommended for players 6-17 years of age. In this camp we will break down individual and team skills. Each day we will reinforce what was taught on the previous days of camp, while adding new concepts. Throughout the week we will look to teach and reinforce the use of 4-5 different moves, and double moves, to be applied during scrimmages. Each day there is a theme, and throughout the week we look to review the theme of the previous day(s) and then build in new concepts. The camp will consist of individual and team concepts and scrimmages, with an hour break for lunch. We will take water/snack breaks as needed. We will challenge and improve your game no matter what your skill level.

We will work on all aspects of the game including proper standing and diving techniques, one-on-one’s, footwork, crosses, field vision, commanding a defense, and reading the game.

Team Camps...

An excellent program where your team is getting 15-30 hours of intensive training, the equivalent of 3-6 weeks of training in one-week. We work on individual attacking and defending skills, and many team concepts including- Possession Style Soccer, Building Possession from the Back, Systems of Play, Situational Play, Numbers Up Attacking and Defending Concepts, Attacking from the Backline, Creating in the Attacking Third, Attacking from the Flanks, Team Building (Psychological) Exercises, and Set Pieces. Working with your teammates in this type of environment will improve both your individual and team level of play. We work with your coach to develop the program. This is a great camp experience that we highly recommend.
