Elite Residential Camp is for girls only and is an opportunity for those who are interested in playing in college to get a great learning experience. There will be a high level of coaches brought to this camp to help you in every aspect of your game as well as inform you of what it takes to perform at the next level (nutritionally and strength and conditioning).
The technical development of our campers is our top soccer priority and emphasized in each field session. Players will be exposed to advanced techniques for shooting, dribbling, receiving, turning, heading, and more. Our coaches will take players through each step of the techniques to ensure proper development and execution.
Tactical training is featured in our afternoon sessions when the campers are grouped into their teams. Our expert staff of coaches will help organize your team into an effective system of play and teach your players their roles within that system. Topics covered include principles of attack and defense, switching fields, overlapping, and organizing the box. Teams will get to test what they’ve learned in the evening matches.
A specialized goalkeeper camp is held in conjunction with all of our residential camps. Goalkeepers will receive separate instruction from the field players led by Katie Ely who serves as goalkeeper coach for the Georgia Bulldogs. Proper technique for diving, boxing, parrying, and distribution is emphasized and one session of pressure training is included.
