The Striker and Goalkeeper camp is an intense four days of specialized training for serious soccer players looking to improve dramatically at their position. Pairing strikers and goalkeepers together in the same camp environment enables each player to receive the amount of challenging repetitions needed around the goal to become more comfortable handling crucial plays successfully.

 

STRIKERS will be put through a challenging curriculum dedicated to the art of creating and scoring goals. This camp is a great opportunity for players to improve their technique, offensive skills in the attacking third, passing, dribbling, shooting, and scoring from crosses, volleys, and headers.

BSA SKILLS CAMP

Skills Camp the first step to getting ahead of the competition. Are you ready to separate yourself from the pack?

 

The USA Skills School is an intense ball skills development class for the serious soccer player. All sessions are conducted in a highly focused environment with the emphasis on individual skill development through a series of technical skills & drills using innovative coaching techniques. Topics include ball control, skills, moves, playing with both feet and ball manipulation. The aim is not for the student to simply be able to perform the techniques in practice - but to be able to perform the technique at full speed in a game situation. 

 

Skills Schools are designed to be an ongoing supplement to regular team practices and students will be required to complete additional work outside of the camp to achieve maximum success.

 

Skills Schools are taught by senior trainers who have a strong background in individual technique and development. Students progression onto more advanced classes is dependent on the trainers recommendation prior to the end of the season.
