Camp Philosophy:
Our goal is for all campers to have a fun and safe experience while focusing on team play and individual skill development. The camp will concentrate on dribbling, passing, shooting, trapping, team offensive and defensive play, and daily live games. It is our belief that young athletes can have loads of fun in a positive environment while also learning to the play the game from professionals. Attitude, effort, teamwork, leadership, and sportsmanship will be stressed throughout the week, while campers learn correct soccer fundamentals.

Attitude & Effort:
Your camper will learn to respect and honor the game in an environment where success is measured by effort and teamwork, and not by winning and losing.

Leadership:
Campers will be challenged to act like leaders by supporting and respecting everyone in camp: teammates, coaches, and referees alike.

Skill Development:
All participants will leave camp with a high level of understanding of proper technique in all areas of the game. By incorporating drills and competitions developed over a lifetime of playing and teaching the game, campers will gain a firm grounding in the fundamentals to build their soccer careers.

Become a “Student of the Game”:
Every camper will be challenged to maximize his or her athletic potential while being encouraged to go above and beyond individual “comfort” levels. By learning new drills, techniques, and philosophies, we hope that all players will become “students of the game.” It is for this reason that campers are encouraged to play many different positions during camp.
