The Academy Experience 5Day/4Night Residential Camp

The Academy Experience Camp

(Birth Years 2003 to 2007) 

 

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 improve their game in areas they need improvement.  

 

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 on a daily basis to develop the proper mindset and understanding that soccer at 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 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.

 

 The staff that will train the players will be current MLS Academy Coaches, Academy Coaches, College Coaches and Youth National Team staff 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.
