Youth Camp U9 (8-9):
The main focus is on developing and training a broad range of motor skills (not just soccer: climbing, jumping, throwing, simple games with a variety of balls, etc.). This way they develop movement skills applicable to any sport. We will be teaching a wide range of movements. Campers will be experiencing the fun of unstructured play.
In line with children’s physical development, the main focus here is coordination training. This is the foundation for the development of soccer-specific technical/tactical elements (ability to play). At the same time, players learn the rudiments of basic techniques like shooting, dribbling, and passing (lots of small group games and competitions to keep it fun).
The initial focus is on individual training
(1 v. 1 play). Then comes basic tactics: covering space, getting open and showing for passes, group tactics. Small-sided games are used to implement tactics learned in a game-like environment.
High School Camp:
The Boys High School training camp is open to all athletes entering 8th grade and older. The camp is designed for the serious athlete to prepare for their fall high school season. The goal of the coaching staff is to build confidence while providing an environment that challenges each player. There will be an intense schedule of games, fitness, and instruction. Players will be asked to compete in each session and to actively participate in the improvement and development of their soccer skills.
