FAQs

WHAT DO THE CAMPERS RECEIVE?

All campers attending one of our residential sites will receive Nike t-shirt, Nike backpack, and Nike Soccer ball. Those campers attending one of our Day Camp sites will ONLY receive a Nike t-shirt and Nike backpack and must bring their own ball. ALL campers MUST bring their own water bottle.

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY IN THE LIFE OF A CAMPER LOOK LIKE?

Each day begins with a technical training session dedicated to teaching the proper techniques of dribbling, passing & receiving, controlling with various surfaces, heading, etc. These sessions will be completed on a blacktop where the player is challenged with the speed of play and the ability to control the ball. During these sessions the camper will absolutely wear the ball out with touches. We feel this is an extremely unique style that greatly benefits each player involved. Goalkeepers will go with the goalkeeper coaches to attend a field session working on the techniques specialized to their own unique position.

 The second session will be conducted as a traditional field session where the player will incorporate the techniques learned in the parking lot onto the field. It is here where the players really learn to use their individual skills to their advantage in more tactical game situations. These sessions will teach the finer points of the game including movement with and without the ball, maintaining ball possession in and out of tight spaces, and building through a more defined system of play. Following this session the players will head to lunch and take a break.

 The third session incorporates more skill-type work; this session will also be on a field setting. Here the players will work on things such as crossing and finishing, combining passes to get forward, and team defending tactics. These sessions, just like the first two, all build on one another to give the player a wide range of reps and experience.

 The players will complete the day with dinner and about four hours of game play. Small sided and full sided games will be played the remainder of the night. Here, the players get to use all of the skills and lessons learned in training and get to apply them to real games.
