At Soccer Camp, highly skilled soccer coaches teach campers the proper fundamentals and techniques of the most popular sport in the world. A variety of drills are used to teach campers the basics of passing, dribbling, shooting, patterns, and defense. Instructors also challenge campers to use both the dominant and non-dominant foot, emphasize the importance of proper footwork and ball control, field awareness, and adequate spacing among players. Every camper, regardless of age or position, participates in both offensive and defensive drills, which help develop and improve the different aspects of each camper’s game.

Campers receive individual and group coaching throughout the week.  Campers are divided into teams based upon age and ability for drills, games, and competitions. Campers participate in competitions such as penalty shots, accuracy, footwork, ball handling, 3 on 3 mini games, scrimmages and much more!

On Fridays, campers play in a “World Cup” tournament and select the country they want to represent!

For our many campers who love soccer but do not play competitively, our instructors help campers build their self-confidence through encouragement, and providing an environment where every camper can succeed in improving their skills, techniques, and knowledge of the game!

New Features for our 2017 camps include Goalie specific coaching/workouts, understanding various offensive & defensive line ups and their strategies, individual drills that campers can do at home to improve ball control/skills, and a focus on improving flexibility, endurance, core strength and an intelligent outlet towards the game.

Soccer campers work hard, get better each day, and have fun! Private soccer lessons are available before and after camp.
