Elite Residential Camp

"You can only become a great player by playing with great players"

We invite advanced soccer players, with the desire and determination to become exceptional players, to join us in the Elite camp. It is designed to bring together players from ages 12-18 for five days to be immersed in a high performance soccer environment similar to that of a National Youth Team Camp. The love of the game and the focus to improve individual skills and knowledge become a daily pursuit. Players will be divided into age appropriate groups.

Technical excellence and skill with the ball is the foundation of the elite player. Players are required to be decision makers and have the ability to solve problems. They must be able to succeed in adversity, and have self-confidence in their abilities. Elite Players receive instruction and attend discussions on nutrition, conditioning and game preparation. They are advised on team play, injury prevention, college admission and scholarships.

Who should attend?

The Elite Camp is reserved for players from age 12-18, who will be playing 11 v 11 in the Fall. They must have played on a high school team or premier travel team and be prepared to train at a high performance standard. It is important that players evaluate which program is best suited to their work ethic and needs. If you do not meet these standards, we suggest enrolling your child in our Champions Camp, which has The Academy for high school aged players, to help you attain the ability to prepare for the demanding requirements of the Elite Camp.
