US Sports Camps strives to continue a tradition of excellence with the Arizona Soccer Camp. San Rafael, CA.  Contact: Arizona Soccer Camp (soccer@ussportscamps.com) 1-800-645-3226

After forty years with the Soccer Academy, Founder and Director Alan Meeder has announced his retirement.   He is proud to announce the partnership with US Sports Camps moving forward.  Coach Meeder has a vast experience in soccer and is still heavily involved in camp planning and operations.   Assuming the directorship is Wes Wade, who was a seventeen-year professional player who was a six time All-Star. Operating through out the Prescott area, the Arizona Soccer Camp has been at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona for the past seven years.

With this partnership there have been some small changes to scheduling, but the actual programming and curriculum of camp is exactly the same.  We have added a Day Only program running from 8:30am to 4:00pm with lunch included. Here campers receive 4-5 hours of daily instruction.  It is an NEW option with an abbreviated schedule.  Our Extended Day program running from 8:30am to 8:00pm, offers the same schedule as previous years, with campers receiving 6-7 hours of daily instruction, with lunch and dinner included. Overnight players stay in the dorms on campus, eat in the school’s dining hall and receive outstanding instruction and game play three times a day on the fields.

Program Descriptions
Basic Session - These sessions are perfect for players, ages 8-10, in their first three years of playing.
Advanced Sessions - Advanced sessions continue the process of skill development. Tactical awareness is taught to help players increase their speed of play and vision.
High School Session – Designed for players who are 14 years old and entering ninth grade. The sessions include college counseling sessions, which help campers gather the information they need to become college soccer players.
Goalkeeping - The Soccer Academy offers total goalkeeper coaching that includes the technical, tactical, and psychological training needed to be a successful keeper.  Goalkeeper training is offered each week.

Coach Wade continues the camp's tradition of high quality instruction. Over the years, the coaching staff has featured 34 college coaches, 23 foreign professional players, and 17 American pros. The combination of the director’s soccer coaching experience and US Sports Camps management expertise will sets the camp on the path to even greater success.

US Sports Camps has been in the business of running the Nike Soccer Camps for 14 years.  Coupled with The Soccer Academy’s rich history, the program provides a focused atmosphere for the soccer enthusiast who is looking to improve his/her skills, work hard, make new friends and have fun.  We hope you will join us in this new chapter for the Arizona Soccer Camp.
