About the program
Universal Soccer Academy hosts 3 camps during the summer that are designed to give our students the opportunity to improve their entire game. Our Technical Skills Camp, Tactical Awareness Camp and our Attacking & Shooting Camp provides our students with the opportunity to improve their ball handling skills, become better at moving without the ball and become more dangerous around the goal.
The goal of our Summer Camps is to transform our students into players that are comfortable when the ball is at their feet, to help them understand the basic tactical concepts of soccer, and to teach them how to become dangerous when on the offensive.
Students that attend all 3 camps are exposed to a large spectrum of knowledge that transforms their game. However players can attend one, two or three camps.
These camps are held outdoor and players are expected to come well hydrated and in full soccer attire including soccer cleats, shin guards, socks and shorts. Students are to bring plenty of water to cover the 3 hours of training. Students will be given a Universal T-Shirt at registration and will be expected to wear their shirt for all 5 days of camp.
