SUMMER SOCCER ACADEMY – Coach Mauro Nobre
DESCRIPTION: The Summer Soccer Academy will address each player’s unique development needs. We will assess your physical and technical skills and determine your weak and strong areas. The summer training will be tailored around your needs. We will provide you hundreds of purposeful ball touches each session. The idea is to perform each technique correctly, with no pressure, so that through repetition you develop the correct technique and muscle memory. The program will involve fun and challenging individual and small-group exercises using a Brazilian skills development method. The Brazilian method combines correct body mechanics with plyometrics. We realize that players may have to miss some of the 12 sessions, and we will adjust accordingly.

ADVANCED SKILLS CAMP - Coach Mauro Nobre
DESCRIPTION: The Advanced Skills Camp will teach new skills and sharpen your existing skills. The main focus this season will be ball skills to beat a defender, passing and shooting. Attention to details and precision will improve the various phases of execution – preparation, execution, and follow-through. In addition, we will teach you when, how and why to use each skill in a game situation, so players will develop a higher soccer IQ. Your toolkit of skills will get bigger and sharper, and your understanding of when and how to use each skill to solve problems frequently encountered in game situations will blossom.

STRIKERS & GOALKEEPERS CAMP - Coach Mauro Nobre
DESCRIPTION: The Strikers/Goalkeepers Camp develops play in and around the penalty box – creating goal opportunities, shooting, or saving shots. All aspects of attacking in the front third of the field will be covered. Sessions will focus on individual as well as small group play. Goalkeepers will also receive high repetitions in technical skills and tactical situations, with a goalkeeper trainer. Technical training includes receiving (hands and feet), distributing (foot and hand), diving, and boxing (parrying). Tactical situations include 2 v1's, positioning in various situations, and angle play. Strikers will learn multiple types of effects on the ball – we will be using the Strikerite ball to teach these advanced striking and shooting techniques. Players will be offered the chance to purchase the Strikerite ball at a discount (comes with an instructional CD).

PRE-SEASON INTENSIVE CAMP - Coach Mauro Nobre
DESCRIPTION: A camp designed to prepare our Premier, High School and advanced Academy players to start the season in peak shape! Very challenging program to help you meet all the demands of the game. The objective is for us to be better prepared than any of our opponents from the first game of the season. This will include at least two days of BEACH SOCCER! Beach soccer is lots of fun, and very demanding physically. Players improve their endurance, strength and power without even realizing how hard they are working, all as a natural result of playing on the sand. It will also improve their technical skills with balls in the air, since the ball must be passed in the air due to the irregular surface of the sand. In between games players can cool off and splash in the water! Win-win environment for all!
