Residential 1 Camp is a tremendous opportunity for girls to improve as players, make friends and to enjoy all the benefits of a great camp experience on the beautiful UGA campus. Our knowledgeable and outgoing coaching staff provides a combination of elite level training with pure fun to create a memorable camp experience.
The technical development of our campers is included 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.
Each day culminates with full-sided matches.
A specialized goalkeeper camp is held in conjunction with the Team Week Camp. Goalkeepers will receive separate instruction from the field players led by Katie Ely, the Georgia Bulldogs’ Goalkeepers Coach. Proper technique for diving, boxing, parrying, and distribution is emphasized.
Georgia Soccer Camps provide a tremendous opportunity for players to not only receive expert instruction, but to also gain exposure to collegiate coaches with the means to recruit them. Our staff is comprised of many college and elite level club coaches as well as members of the Bulldogs soccer team.
The Georgia Bulldogs
Campers will also be exposed to the Georgia Bulldog players who provide a wonderful model for technical expertise and training habits. Our players will be accessible on and off the field. For many campers this is their first true interaction with high-level soccer players and part of an inspirational camp experience.
Safety and Supervision
Safety is always our top priority at camp. Campers are given adequate water breaks, plenty of recovery time, and have 24 hour supervision. Certified athletic trainers are always on-call in case of emergency. Parents are welcome to attend any of the training sessions.
