at Nike Soccer Camps
Join us for an amazing week of camp at Nike Soccer Camp at Morgan Hill Outdoor Sports Center in Morgan Hill, CA. Team up with Camp Director Edson Cardona for the ultimate soccer training camp!
PMP is where footballers practice their skills towards perfection. Not only do we sharpen the craft of the player, but focus on weaknesses that will help the player go beyond their talent. PMP stands for “Practice Makes Perfect,” which in this case will give the coach the ability to do one-on-one and group training to help the player achieve and perfect their skills in no time. We as a program dedicate our time to become the stepping stone for the players’ greatness. Each player has different skills, but PMP focuses on making each player grow into the best player they can become, through various training, fitness, and tactical sessions.
- Unique and structured curriculum
