A great opportunity for players to learn through a mix of drills, games, and competitive play. With a number of different camp options for all to enjoy!

Campers will work on everything from warm-ups, ball handling, diving, shot-stopping, 1v1's, breakaways, and making the match-winning stop! This will be done through specific drills and match-like situations.

Field Player Camp: is for campers looking to improve their game in a fun and fast-paced environment. These camps are designed so players leave the camp week more prepared for their club and high school seasons. Experienced coaches will provide campers with a fresh perspective and challenge them to develop technical, tactical, physical, and psychological aspects of their game through a progressive curriculum.

    • 5/5.

    June 9, 2023: The highlight was the fact that the coaches helped the kids while they were playing matches and they pumped them up as well. We have been to other camps where the coaches did not coach- they stood back and watched. It was a wonderful experience for my child.

    July 29, 2023: Our 10 year old said, she learned a lot of new skills to warm up as a keeper and she loved their attention to detail, they corrected her a lot and she liked that. She also said coaches were fun and personable, they called her by name and she liked that
