Summer Training Academies and Camps
From Science to Art: a fresh, analysis-based perspective and approach to the game of soccer
Tired of sending your players to the same, cookie-cutter camps offering technical training but developing no true understanding of the game? Then you are in the right place! All of our summer academies feature the best tactical training and development available in the region, and specialized game intelligence training for spatial awareness, decision making, anticipation, and thinking ahead. We also provide tachnical training - that is, technical training in the context of how the technique is used effectively in the game. In our lunchtime game intelligence film studies, players see good and bad examples of the tactical and technical elements that we have been working on. These are interactive sessions, and players learn to critically evaluate performance. Even our coaching staff tell us they learn something new every day in these sessions!
All players attending our summer academies are tested on many talent factors for soccer (including technical skills, power, speed, endurance, competition anxiety & tactical knowledge) and receive a detailed feedback e-portfolio of test results following the camp. The portfolios compare players to their peer group and to elite players of their age.
Our team-based training academies provide a learning experience that is tailored to the team's level of play, formation, playing style, and strengths/weaknesses. In a meeting with the coaching staff, we design a curriculum to optimize the week's sessions, resulting in a mixture of individual and team-tactical sessions that leave the team with a better understanding of how to play together. Following the academy, the coaches receive feedback on each player's tests and the team's performance. All players leave our camps with:
- >> Individual & small group tactical training
- >> Themed tactical sessions based on the team’s systems of play
- >> Game intelligence training
- >> Extensive player testing and e-portfolios
- >> Film studies to break down concepts and play
