About the Camp
This year is the ninth year of the USAO residential soccer camp, which has attracted the attention of many talented soccer players throughout the region and state. The camp offers soccer players the opportunity to enhance their individual and team skills that are vital for success at the club, high school, ODP or collegiate levels. Past campers have included regional and national players currently competing in the NAIA, NCAA Division I and at national levels. Every day offers each camper the opportunity to improve his or her speed and agility, technical training and tactical awareness within an intense training environment. Campers will be exposed to small-sided game situations as well as full-sided evening matches.
"This camp will help you realize your goals and allow you to leave camp better equipped to take your game to the next level."
— Coach Jimmy Hampton
Goalkeeper training is another important feature of the USAO Residential Camp. Goalkeepers will be able to train separately from field players. The USAO goalkeepers training sessions curriculum will be organized by Alexis Vizarelis.
Emphasis will be placed on the physical, mental, technical and tactical components of goalkeeping. Each evening, they will be able to display their skills in full-sided games.
