The Academy Experience 5Day/4Night Residential Camp

Last year's 2018 US Soccer DA Academy participants, US Soccer DA Academies will be posted upon their committment to attend in 2019.

The Academy Experience Camp

Birth Years 2004 to 2009 (ages 9-14)

 

The Academy Experience Camp is an elite level soccer specific training
experience for anyone who already plays at the academy level or
possesses the passion to get there. The Academy Experience camp
provides a world-class training environment for any player who has the
desire to work hard and improve. All players registered in the Academy
Experience camp will be given a player development plan similar to
those used by MLS franchises at the conclusion of the camp that is
personalized to help each player excel their game in areas they need
improvement.


The Coaches that will train the players at the camp are current US Soccer Development MLS Academy Coaches, Academy Coaches, College Coaches and Youth National Team Coaches. The goal of this camp is to find highly motivated youth players that walk away saying this camp was the best soccer experience they have ever had.

 

The training environment at The Academy Experience camp is focused
100% on player development. All participants enrolled at the Academy
Experience camp will be exposed to the technical, tactical, physical, and
psychological pillars of the game at the highest level. Players will learn
and be given tools to help them develop the mindset that soccer on the
highest level is a lifestyle, not simply a season. The morning session will
be geared to smaller numbered training, the afternoon will be Futsal and
the evening will feature larger numbered matches with different tactics
applied each night.  The Academy Experience camp will also have a video
analysis piece prior to each evening session that will show higher level
clips of tactics that will be applied in the evening matches.
 
It is our belief that the total player does well on the field, socially and in
the classroom.  In order to reinforce this the Academy Experience camp,
will ask participants to bring their academic report card and each player
will have a sit down to discuss with an academic coach to go over the
outlook of the transcript and the importance to doing well in school. We
will also conduct a social media seminar to help each player understand
how important their social profile is and the do’s and don’ts when it
comes to posting.
