ELITE SOCCER CAMP PROGRAM
Sr. Academy is designed for High School players, including incoming freshmen, who are ready to play and be trained at the next level. The challenge of “playing up” is a fundamental Extreme Soccer Camps initiative. Throughout the week, players will be put in a competitive environment that will bring out their very best. Players will be exposed to the four dimensions of training, Physical, Technical, Tactical and Psychological. Every session will be progressive in nature with a final Small-Sided game that will highlight the topic of the session. Competitive tournaments will be played throughout the week, and be the highlight of our evening sessions. In our unique evening competitions, players will have the opportunity to compete against other teams (World Cup), other players and themselves (Pressure Training).
A typical session will start with the Field Player’s working with their own specialized coaches. Repetition with the ball will give this group the confidence needed. The topics covered on both training grounds will come together for the Small-Sided Game, the situations will be game related.
Our Staff Coaches will share their knowledge and passion for the game on and off the field. Following the Evening Session, the Elite Academy players will meet with their Staff Coaches to review the day’s events. In addition, evening discussions led by our staff coaches will include topical and relevant discussions such as, “Playing Soccer in College”, “Attributes of players at the highest levels” and “Responsibilities of Field Players and Goalkeepers”. All residential campers are required to attend these discussions.
We offer both Residential and Commuter options for our Sr. Academy. Resident campers stay on campus in the dorms at night, whereas commuter campers will leave for home following the Evening Field Session. The resident camper registration fee includes room and board, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meals included in the commuter registration fee are lunch and dinner. Both residents and commuters will get the same No.1 on-field training.
Player’s benefit from advanced technical and tactical training. Emphasis is placed on training and execution of soccer techniques and tactics under pressure of an opponent and game conditions.
