Summer Soccer Camps

Elite Skills Academy - Dates coming soon

Over 100 players improve their skills at Elite Skills Academy each year.  Dynamic, high-paced, fun...and just what your player needs to help them be the best they can be. Don't miss this unrivaled opportunity.

Our curriculum is designed to improve each player's technical skill, creativity, confidence, and love of the game. We create a nurturing and positive environment within which our players can learn, grow, and showcase their emerging talents.

Our Academy instructors include former Major League Soccer and Olympic Development Program coaches, a former US Women’s National Team player, several current and former college coaches, former NCAA All-Americans, and over 150 years of combined professional coaching experience.

Sessions include:

  • Move of the Week - players learn feints, feigns, and all the best moves of their favorite players
  • Skill of the Week - players improve how they collect, pass, head (age appropriate), strike, drive, and loft a ball, defend, tackle, throw in, etc. Everyone needs this!
  • Small-sided Games - nothing better than fast, fun, futbol -- and lots of goals
  • "Skills Circle" - fun and entertaining activity during which the players and coaches demonstrate their favorite skills

As a bonus, and since all great players have amazing juggling skills - combining balance, concentration, and skill - we have begun a "juggle club" during ELITE SKILLS ACADEMY.  Through this "juggle club" our players can develop their juggling skills and earn recognition and prizes for their achievements.

Summer Futsal - Dates coming soon

The Summer Futsal program is for competitive players looking to hone their skills.  Games will take place on the weekends with no practices so it will not interfere with any team practice sessions.  It’s also a great time for players to stay engaged and develop skills during team breaks that typically take place in June and or July.  We will also coordinate with team tournaments that take place in June and July.  The format is 4v4 so having 6-7 players per team is ideal.  Similar to our outdoor winter 4v4 Program, the games will consist of two 20 minute halves and scores/standings will not be recorded.  Teams will play without goalies.

  • SCORING -- your child will learn "scoring straight", header goals, 2 touch prep and blast, penalty kicks, one touch power shot on a rolling ball, finishing a cross, and more
