The Team Academy concept has proven to be one of the most successful ways to challenge and develop quality teams. This year Team Camp coincides with resident camp for the very first time to enhance the playing experience. Teams are encouraged to send their whole squad although we can provide a quality experience for teams of at least 7 players who will be assigned to a Doug Allison’s Soccer Academy Staff Coach. The team will work on topics that include team tactics, team building, restarts, small group work, offensive and defensive shapes.
The hallmark of our team camp is our emphasis on building leadership and teamwork. Teams will play competitive games each day. Our staff will facilitate team building exercises on a daily basis to help your players grow together as a unit. Campers also benefit from our College Recruiting Session, which features College Coaches and players providing insight into the college recruiting process. Numerous ODP and College Coaches representing all levels of NCAA programs participate at the academy.
Please sign up early for Team Camp as it was completely sold out last year due to the competitive environment the teams experienced.
Goalkeepers, please indicate “Goalkeeper” when registering.
