Field Players – We put technical development and decision-making at the forefront of our curriculum. In addition, the Attacking and Defending Principles Camp will allow the more competitive player to learn skills, techniques, and decision-making that are critical in the Attacking and Defending phases of play. The camp will focus largely on individual player improvement but campers will also learn how these critical skills and decisions will translate to the team’s success. By the end of the camp, parents will see improvements in their child’s technical ability, decision-making, confidence, individual foot skills, creativity, defending, attacking ability, and their campers will certainly have had fun.

Goalkeepers: Keepers will receive keeper training for an hour each camp night. Keepers will then be placed in the goals for game action and game speed decision-making. The field players and keepers will be working together during this last hour to bring all concepts they are learning to the field and the goal together.

Campers Receive:

  • Campers will receive a camp T-shirt.

  • Water bottle (we do have water available to kids to refill their bottles)
