Our Elite camps are offered in limited locations and are intended for the serious player with an eye toward college soccer. Elite groups are exposed to high-level skill sets and are challenged to apply these skills to tactically appropriate situations. Games and exercises stress tactical awareness, problem solving, principals of possession, advanced finishing skills, group defending, playing to targets, effective flank play and multiple player attacking combinations. Spirited competition is encouraged and fitness and speed training are emphasized. Elite campers compete in the adidas 5-3-1 competition each day where they are put in a series of competitive team environments and their scores are calculated each day. The teams and challenges change every day and each player’s scores are compiled throughout the week. The winner of the weeklong competition is recognized at our awards ceremony on Friday. At all levels, games are played to encourage the use of the specific skills being taught that day. Nearly three decades of cooperative curriculum development affords us a finely tuned method for getting the skills incorporated into the competitive environment as quickly as possible while building confidence along the way. The difficulty of the moves we teach and the intensity of the competition increases at each level.
