Elite camp is for rising 9th - 12th grade players. Elite groups are exposed to high level skill sets as well as games and exercises that stress tactical awareness, problem solving, principals of possession, advanced finishing skills, group defending, playing to targets, effective flank play and multiple player attacking combinations. Spirited competition is encouraged and fitness and speed training are emphasized. At all levels, games are played to encourage the use of the specific skills being taught that day. Nearly three decades of cooperative curriculum development affords us a finely tuned method for getting the skills incorporated into the competitive environment as quickly as possible while building confidence along the way. The difficulty of the moves we teach and the intensity of the competition increases at each level. Elite campers also compete in the adidas 5-3-1 competition, each day where they are put in a series of competitive team environments and their scores are calculated each day. The teams and challenges change every day and each player’s scores are compiled throughout the week. The winner of the weeklong competition is recognized at our awards ceremony on Friday.
