Our developmental camp will use fun games to teach technical skills such as dribbling, passing, receiving, shooting, and basic defending. Small-sided games including 1v1, 2v1, 2v2, and 4v4 will be used to improve technical skills and develop tactical awareness. Each session will conclude with small matches to goal aimed at improving technique and decision making in game-like situations. All players will participate in a small-sided tournament on the last day of camp.
Keepers will be trained in the technical aspects of goalkeeping. Focus will be placed on fundamentals of shot stopping including body mechanics, body shape, balance and aggressive and positive mentality. Catching high and low balls, catching crossses, punting and angle play will also be emphasized. Our goalkeeping coaches are qualified, licensed coaches.
Classic Soccer Academy’s Advanced Academy Camp will be offered during session V (Dacula, Ga) and will be directed by Rob Mangino & Steven Fraser. This camp will be geared toward competitive academy players at the U9-U12 age group. CSA will carefully select qualified staff to develop players in all four components of the game; technique, tactics, psychology, and fitness. The camp will age- appropriately emphasize each of the four components in a highly competitive environment. The date of this Camp was selected to prepare academy players for their upcoming team camp and fall season. The Advanced Academy Camp will challenge players and improve their game in all areas!
College Experience Academy: Our College Experience Academy was designed for current high school players and rising 9th graders. Each session will be conducted by a local college coach thus providing each player the opportunity to experience a typical college training session. Moreover, players can begin developing important relationships with the coaches. The sessions will be geared toward technical/tactical functional training using small-sided games (7v7, 8v8, 9v9 etc.). Other important components of the game (psychological & physical) will also be emphasized throughout the week. Each session will begin with a technical warmup followed by highly competitive games focused on improving decision making. The professional college staff, carefully selected by Classic Soccer Academy, is looking forward to a great week with our High School players!
