    Challenged and directed by a talented coach

    June 29, 2021: Keira was challenged and directed by a talented coach which really enhanced the experience. She is a strong player and her coaches provide tools and direction on how to take her game to the next level. We will definitely be coming back! She has already asked to attend another session this summer! Loved the entire staff! Thanks for making this a memorable moment for my daughter!

    Coach John is incredible

    July 20, 2021: John has had an amazing time every year with this camp. He attended 2 years ago for two sessions and was excited to attend twice this year and even had his younger sister Alex join. I normally stay and watch most days and can see the improvement of not just my kids but every camper that puts in the effort. Coach John is incredible. He is a great motivator and selected a talented staff that brings this camp to another level. My son is not the most skilled soccer player but every year he improves and comes home excited to go back the next day. He even wants to cancel a camp so he can come back for a third week. I highly recommend this camp to everyone. If your son or daughter is highly skilled or just want to have fun and improve their skills they will not be disappointed. Both of my kids wish they had sessions every week of the summer.

    Learned and gained confidence

    July 20, 2021: This was Hannah’s first real exposure to the game of soccer. Aside from a small church league with minimal instruction, she’s never played true soccer. She learned so much and gained much confidence. She’s ready to join a league ASAP!! Thanks so much!!

    Excited to go every day

    July 20, 2021: We really enjoyed how motivating the camp was. Summers in Florida are miserable with the heat but the coaches did a great job to plan the length of activities and know when to take breaks, grab shade and explore other activities that allowed the campers to not wear out in the heat. Sean was excited to go every day. He enjoyed being able to work on foot skills and goalie skills at the same camp. And the Director was outstanding. Check in everyday was super motivating and we felt valued coming back each day. We will be back!

    Loved learning new drills

    August 2, 2021: Although the days were hot, Logan had fun learning but was able to take a break at the pool or go indoors. Monday was extremely hot and definitely took its toll on him by the end of the day. Can’t do much about the weather. He loved learning new drills he can work on with his friends or teammates.

    Taking Risks

    Player of the week

    June 15, 2019: John was the youngest and Has only been playing soccer for a year. This was Johns first camp and we are already signed up for the next camp at the end of July. The coaches were amazing. Coach John and Coach’s Pablo did a great job focusing on every child and the training John received has allowed him to improve in all areas. John was given the camper of the week award which made his day. This camp made such a difference in his commitment to improving at soccer. I plan I’m having several of his teammates from Northeast Soccer in St Pete to register for the July session. I hope that Nike continues to support this program and I would love if they had a few more sessions over the summer. Thank you!
