Similar to previous years we are offering our regular curriculum for our camp. In addition, we will also offer a ‘morning only’ session for our beginning campers during both weeks of camp. Players that attend the camp will be placed in instructional groups according to age, ability, and wishes. The camp is directed toward players with club and travel team experience but we can accommodate players that are just starting to develop a love for the game as well. The focus will be the improvement of technical skills, as well as the development of small-sided tactical skills and a large team tactical understanding in a fun and competitive environment.
More specifically, during the morning session the campers work on technical skills and small game tactical improvement with their specific coaches. We also provide numerous water breaks and are cognizant that we can experience very hot weather at this time of the year. Lunch follows the AM session and this is included in the price of the camp and will be provided to each camper (Monday thru Thursday). Friday is a half day and camp ends before lunch time.
Following lunch the campers go to the Walker Field House where we play a competitive indoor schedule that not only allows the students to play in a supervised competitive environment but also avoids the hottest part of the day. Around 2:15pm the campers are will go back to Prentiss Fields where we play large sided games and develop a greater understanding of the associated tactical skills. Individual technical competitions at the end of the week provide additional excitement and competition.
Finally, it is important to say that we are proud that our coaches are all excellent local/regional coaches that not only understand the competitive side of the game but also recognize the needs of young children as they develop a love and an understanding of the game of soccer.
