What Camp Should I attend?

The Junior Elite/Senior Elite camp ages 10 to 18 year olds will provide the player with the specific training needs for their age and ability. This program will emphasize technical skill development and small group tactics to help the player recognize situations presented in the later 11v11 evening matches. Our Senior Elite Camp is limited to 10th-12th graders and will focus mainly on match play in a competitive tournament setting. Small-sided games and training will supplement the matches with the emphasis being placed on large group tactics. Please let us know if you are interested in both camps.
