2017 Elite Player DEVELOPMENT Summer Camp at Beach

Alabama Soccer Association

ASA-Flyer-2017-05

Our mission for this camp is to teach players various attacking techniques that they can utilize during self-training sessions where players practice on their own at home.  We will do this through a fun, nurturing environment and playing small sided activities/games that encourage players to solve soccer problems.  We challenge players to make decisions and solve problems while on the field.  We also hope to inspire players to add juggling to their daily self-training.  Special to this 3rd annual camp, we will once again offer Footgolf to the players – this will be on Friday evening for an additional of around $10 per participant (parents are welcome to participate!).

What do you need to bring?

  • Each player will need his or her own soccer ball for every session.  Each player is responsible for keeping up with his/her own gear.
  • Shin-guards with socks.
  • Plenty of healthy drinks (water).  It's a good idea to bring your own cooler with snacks as well.  Please, no peanuts.
  • Wear a white/grey shirt for training. 
  • Prior to camp, work on your juggling skill set.  We want players to be practicing their juggling. Spend 5-15 minutes each day with the ball before you come to camp.  There will be a heavy emphasis on inspiring the players to juggle to help their development and we will be challenging them with various competitions.
  • A GREAT ATTITUDE AND TEACHABLE SPIRIT
