CSA’s list of summer day camps is diverse. Check ’em out here:
Youth Elite Camp and BMW Sports Elite Camp
Both individuals and teams are welcome to participate in each camp. All levels of players are welcome; boys and girls. All players will be grouped according to their age and ability in order to provide a competitive environment. These camps are designed to improve a player’s technical ability and comfort on the ball. Each director has their own specialized approach at each camp, which makes the camps unique and an annual favorite for all players. Each camp is geared to the specific age group and is designed to cover all aspects of the game in a fun, enjoyable environment. The camps will have their annual competitions and prizes from Adidas will be awarded to camp winners and MVPs.
Ball Mastery Camps
These camps are designed to make a player comfortable and confident on the ball. These camps will make your touch, control, coordination and speed improve both on and off the ball. You will be fitter, faster and more effective on the ball. The camp is designed to help you be more efficient in 1 v 1 situations with the various moves, fakes and feints you will learn. We will make you more creative when taking a player on. We will have various “skills of the day” competitions and Adidas prizes for the winners.
Recreation Elite Camp
The Recreation Elite Camp is open to all players between the ages of 5 and 18 that are currently playing at a recreation level or are interested in trying soccer for the very first time. Players will be grouped according to age and ability and go through a series of stations focusing on a technique for each day. The camp will make players more comfortable and confident on the ball with various games and competitions throughout the week. Prizes will be awarded to camp winners and MVPs.
Goalkeeping and Striker Camp
The Goalkeeping and Strikers Camp caters to all goalkeepers from beginners to advanced. Campers will go through five days of detailed curriculum, including shot stopping, basic handling, angle play, crosses/high balls, and distribution. Campers will also play small sided games each day, implementing these skills into game-type situations. Strikers attending the camp will learn the core techniques of striking the ball better from various distances from the goal and various angles. We will make you a more proficient finisher and goal scorer with the various sessions incorporated through the week.
Becoming a Better Defender and Midfielder Camp
This camp is designed to be position specific to help defenders and midfielders become more proficient in their chosen position. We will help defenders be stronger in 1 v 1 situations, more comfortable on the ball, and more technically sound working on their distribution playing out of the back. Midfielders will work on being more creative on the ball and, like the defenders, work on their techniques with various passing and receiving sessions. This camp will help develop the full range of skills needed to be a standout/creative midfield player.
Dynamic Speed and Agility Camp
Dynamic Speed and Agility Camp is designed to enhance the players’ speed, agility, running mechanics (technique) and explosive power through dynamic workouts, plyometric workouts, core training and explosion workouts. Players will be grouped by age and ability going through specific speed workouts that apply directly to game related scenarios. Players will see gains in overall speed, acceleration, reaction time, foot speed, and recovery time. There is no doubt that SPEED WINS. Don’t be left behind!
