Ball Mastery Camp Level are for campers aged between 6 and 10. Emphasis is placed on individual skill development and basic moves with the goal of developing confidence on the ball. Beginning “move sets” are taught and games are played to practice the moves in a method that starts with no pressure and slowly adds the pressure of time and/or space restrictions. Then passive defensive pressure is added and by the end of the first morning, players are performing moves under full defensive pressure to goal. First touch is a major theme in Ball Mastery sessions. Advanced Camp level are campers aged between 10 and 14. The Advanced level teaches more complicated moves and swiftly puts players into competitive environments with an emphasis on 1v1 and 2v2 play in the morning. Small group tactics are also taught and small-sided games are played featuring fast break attack and counter attack. The importance of fast transition play is stressed and players are encouraged to play creatively and freely and to use their new skills in games. Players are also put in many situations requiring decision-making as that is a key ingredient to advanced play. HS Prep camp is for rising 9th – 12th grade players. Players are exposed to high level skill sets as well as games and exercises that stress tactical awareness, problem solving, principles 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. After lunch all HS Prep groups receive training in Shooting/Finishing techniques. The final hour of camp is focused on small sided (7v7) games, with each day offering a new team to play with and a new tournament to win. Group champions are recognized at our award ceremony on Friday afternoon.
