RESIDENTIAL AND COMMUTER CAMP

Our uniquely structured curriculum helps develop technically gifted, intelligent, tactically aware soccer players. Three sessions daily are structured in a tiered system as we work through the development process day by day. Morning focus is on technical, ball mastery, balance and coordination. Afternoon are the tactical sessions, finished off with evening scrimmages, small sided games and competitive tournaments.

YOUTH CAMP

The primary goal of our Youth Day Camp is to increase the camper’s love for the game while increasing one’s individual skill and knowledge of soccer. This passion is accomplished through fun exercises that are technically challenging and competitive.

ABOUT PLAYER ONE

Player One Soccer was created in 2016 offering a more personal, professional, detail-orientated program for the aspiring young soccer player. Through years of experience, hard work and passion, Player One Soccer has created a unique camp structure with the primary focus on improving each individual player above and beyond their own highest vision of capability. Our staff are hand picked, fully trained, and experienced. They are full-time, year-round professional youth soccer coaches and educators. Coaches are selected first on their ability to interact and inspire, then on their willingness to always put in extra to improve each player. Each camper receives a packet at the end of the week with a Player One individual camp photo and a full evaluation. Coaches are available on the last day to give one-on-one feedback to players and parents. A specialized camp curriculum is offered, ever evolving and created through years of experience and study, executed with the highest levels of professionalism. Your Player One is guaranteed to improve and to be inspired from our week of camp.

    Improved confidence

    This is our second time attending the camp. It has helped my child improve dribbling techniques and confidence. We love that the camp is held at a college campus and I'm very confident that this setting helps him view himself playing college soccer-which is our ultimate goal!

    Life as a Student-Athlete

    Thank you very much for the time spent with my son during the camp. He really enjoyed himself. I feel it opened his eyes to what college life for a student-athlete will be. He is very determined to make the needed corrections and will work hard to achieve his goals.

    Huge confidence booster

    My son received exceptional training at this soccer camp. He was able to stay in the dorms and bond with the other players. He made new friends and gained valuable skills in the camp. He also received some valuable feedback from the coaches and won "keeper of the week" which was a huge confidence booster for him. Worth the money and time spent here. We would have him do it again!

    Fun and entertaining

    The camp was fun and entertaining. I learned a lot throughout the week. I felt like staying in the dorm made me get to know my peers and bond on and off the field.

    Developed as a player

    This soccer camp was very intense and fast paced. I walked away from this camp with more knowledge on the sport then I can even imagine. I can tell I have developed more as a player from just attending this camp.
