JUNIOR SOCCER PROGRAM
Continued development of technique and soccer skills and introduction to individual and small group tactics. Again using game like fun activities. Included in the program will be fast footwork training. Actual soccer games conclude each and every day with the Junior Soccer Academy Program. 10-13 year olds.
Each Extreme Soccer Camps program is developed and designed by National Programs Director Director Dennis Lukens. Mr. Lukens has Coached Professional Soccer in Europe and America as well as leading the Saint Lucia Olympic Team through CONCACAF Olympic Qualification in 2008. Formerly Mr. Lukens was Director of Coaching for the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association directly in charge of their Olympic Development Program.
Junior Academy field players ages 10-13. The program has been designed to build a foundation that will help the participant’s progress to the next level. This will be accomplished in a fun, entertaining and positive environment. Repetitions with the ball will give this group the confidence needed. Players will be exposed to the four dimensions of training, Physical, Technical, Tactical and Psychological. Each session will be progressive in nature and will conclude with a relative 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 (Dutch) and themselves (Pressure Training).
A typical session will start with the Field Players separating and working with their own specialized coaches. The topics covered at training will be game related. All topics, exercises and games will be engaging and pertinent for this age group and ability level. We will stress proper technical development with the ability to use real live situations in match related activities to challenge themselves and to execute those skills at the highest level.
We offer both Residential and Commuter options for our Junior 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 only. Both residents and commuters will get the same great on-field training.
