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.

Lawrence All-Star Camp - LAWRENCE

The All-Star Summer Camp is specifically designed to work on all the fundamental aspects of the game. In the modern game players must learn how to attack and defend if they want to play at the highest level. 

Each session starts with speed and agility to increase players functional core strength, dynamic flexibility, control and balance. Then players will work on ball mastery before being introduced to the specific topic of the day. 

The topic of the day will focus on the technical and tactical applications of attacking or defending. Attacking concepts include: learning effective skill moves used to off balance defenders, how to create separation from defenders with movement off the ball, when to use wall passes, learn proper techniques on how to effectively shoot, cross, dribble, and much more. Defending concepts include: teaching players how to properly defend individually and as a team using the principles such as pressure, cover, and balance. Defending topics will have a strong emphasis on transitioning to attack. 

Players will finish each session participating in small sided and big sided games so they can have the opportunity to implement what they have learned and into game situations. This camp is highly recommended for all players who want to take their game to the next level. 

Lawrence All-Star Camp Session 1. June 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 - 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm - $120.

STRIKERS & GOALKEEPERS CAMP - JUNE 20-24

The Strikers/Goalkeepers Camp, led by Mauro Nobre, 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 - JULY 29-AUGUST 2

The Pre-Season Intensive camp, led by Mauro Nobre, is 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. We will play a series of high intensity small sided games, with short periods of rest. This will include 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!

DATES:  July 29-Aug 2
APPROPRIATE FOR: 7-18 year-olds. Academy League, Premier and High School players; Advanced Rec players
