Shooting and Finishing Camp

Determine the match! Shoot more, score more, and have more fun!

Our Shooting and Finishing Camp offers participants the opportunity to take as many technically correct shots on goal with both feet as possible. They will train on all areas of the field at as fast a pace possible for that particular player. Then, when players get scoring chances in real games, they can confidently convert those chances into goals because they have practiced that shot over and over.

Midfield Maestro Playmaker Course

Learn to unlock the game with key passes, turning skills, and combination play! Playmaker and Advanced Playmaker options are available.

The midfielder can control the game with his vision, control, and selection of pass. A midfielder can push the game forward by playing quickly toward goal or keep the tempo in a game by finding passes that help control the possession of the ball. It is a position where risk v. reward must be weighted as midfielders link the attackers to the defenders.

Our Playmaker and Advance playmaker course addresses the key moments of changing the game. Decisive passing, turning out of pressure, and creating space are the key technical topics that coaches will focus on during this course.

Key Benefits

Advanced Technical & Fitness Camp

Fitness and conditioning is an important piece of soccer as the entire game is that of continuous running mixed with a lot of short bursts of high tempo, high-intense sprints. For this reason, it is essential to focus on both anaerobic (short duration, high intensity) and aerobic (running long distances) fitness to get your players to match fitness levels. Technical and physical preparation will challenge players each day while the coaching staff introduces advanced tactic concepts throughout the week.
