Grande Sports Academy soccer camps offer a wonderful opportunity for young aspiring soccer players to immerse themselves in top quality training at one of the premier training facilities in the country. Our coaches are committed and dedicated to youth development, as we are the 2012-13 US Soccer Development Academy U-15/16 National Champions and the 2013-14 USSDA U-15/16 and 2014-15 USSDA U-17/18 National Championship finalists. Grande Sports Academy campers will immensely benefit from their vast experience along with their devotion to improving the campers’ skills.
Our soccer camps provide a competitive playing and learning environment in which the players receive instructions and directions that address all four dimensions of the game:
Technical: Training sessions provide professional training that incorporates the technical side of the game (passing, receiving, dribbling, crossing, finishing, 1v1 defending, etc.) into the sessions while avoiding repetitive & monotonous activities.
Tactical: Training sessions are structured so that the player is put in game-like situations and must answer the questions which are produced from the exercises. With guidance from the coaches, we look to increase the player’s soccer IQ, subsequently raising their ability to “read the game.”
Physical: Three-a-day sessions are organized to ensure that the player’s aerobic base is increased while simultaneously safeguarding against overexertion.
Psychological: The residential aspect of soccer camp emulates the full-time academy setup and encourages the player to become more independent, disciplined and mature while doing so in a safe and structured environment.
Camp pricing includes all meals, accommodations, training, t-shirt, service fee and sales tax.
