Prior to Southeastern, Roberts served as the vice president of Ocala Stampede SC of the United Soccer League. During his time with the Stampede, Roberts was involved in front office management, growth and project development, as well as sponsorship and community outreach projects. They competed in the PDL, which has proven to be an important stepping-stone for top professionals now playing across the globe.
Roberts is no stranger to the area; he is a graduate of Plant City High School, and played soccer at Florida Southern College. During his career with the Mocs, he was named All-Sunshine State Conference three times, and was selected to the NCAA All-South Region team twice.
After his collegiate career, Roberts played professional soccer with the Charlotte Eagles of the USL PRO league and the Philadelphia KIXX of the Major Indoor Soccer League. Roberts helped each team win league championships.
This high-energy environment includes soccer activities such as morning and afternoon training sessions, small and large group offensive and defensive tactics, and small-sided games. Coaches are dedicated to introducing soccer to young players “the right way” and to helping advanced players take the next stage in their development.Show Less See More Camp Details

Became a much more aggressive attacker
My daughter enjoyed shooting and being able to play soccer everyday. She enjoyed the drills but wanted to be pushed more and have harder workouts.
— Macy C., Parent 2017
Really knowledgable councilors
My daughter said she learned a lot of new skills and she has improved her play alot! Enjoyed counselor interaction and multiple coaches. Only drawback as a parent was that no evaluation was provided. All other overnight camps they attended always provided some kind of counselor eval.

Could not be happier!
Excellent instruction! Our son and daughter attended this camp and both enjoyed it immensely! They are already talking about coming back next year. Could not be happier with the coaches, skills, food and friendships made at this camp. You and your child will not be disappointed! -Parent of campers

Learned a lot of new concepts
The camp was very well structured with an appropriate mix of recreational activities, training sessions and down time. I felt comfortable while also challenged in the training group I was assigned to and was able to learn a lot from other campers as well as the coaches and SEU players. Training was enjoyable but also extremely informative and I learned a lot of new concepts and techniques to apply to my game.

COACHING INSTRUCTION WAS AMAZING - GREAT LOCATION
— Sonia C., Camper 2012
This was my 11 year-old daughter's first overnight camp experience and she came back a noticeably changed person! Not only did she improve her soccer skills, but she also became more confident and independent. It feels like she matured a year within a week! Needless to say I'm thoroughly satisfied with my investment and I will definitely send her again next year. Thank you Nike Girls Soccer Camp!
