SUNDAY February 4th, 2024

Grades: 9th-12th
Time: Sold Out
Cost: $135 for the single day!


Our field player program imitates training and expectations players will need if considering a college soccer career. Field players are trained in the proper techniques for shooting, heading, dribbling, passing and defending. They are then put into highly competitive 1v1, 4v4, and 11v11 games to develop these techniques under pressure.


  • 1v1 attacking & defending
  • Creating numbers up situations
  • Speed of play
  • Combination play
  • Becoming a better goal scorer


Don’t worry ‘keepers, we haven’t forgotten about you!  Our objective is to create a training environment that challenges all levels of goalkeeping. There will be both a technical and tactical emphasis to the program that will cover shot stopping, footwork, hand positioning, fitness, diving, handling crosses and corner kicks and more. Technical training will be accompanied by game-related, competitive goalkeeping activities and games. Training time periods will be allotted for goalkeeper specific training, and then goalkeepers will join the field players for finishing exercises, small-sided games and full-sided games in order to apply concepts to live game situations.


  • Reading the game
  • Organizing the defense
  • Dead ball situations
  • Communication
  • Staying connected to the team

We’re limiting the camp to only 40 campers so be sure to reserve your space as soon as you can!

We're hammering out details and will post information as soon as we have it available. Keep checking back and follow along on all of our Social Media platforms!!
