The Residential Camps Experience
What Defines a Steel Soccer Camp?
Individuals / Team
Teams: There is no better way than to combine pre-season training with a team building experience that will last a lifetime. We will work with your coach or on our own to develop the best training program whilst at camp. 50% of our players at Steel Soccer residential camps register as an individuals or in small groups. Training groups for these players are single gender and coordinated by ability.
High School Prep
Unique Experience: A member of our Steel Soccer Staff will meet and liaise with the coach prior to your week at camp. From there, our coaches will discuss, create and then implement a team specific curriculum for each High School team. All HS camps will conclude with a written team/player evaluation for coaches and will include a fitness preparation leading into pre-season.
Unique Experience: Players begin each day with footwork and agility training followed by an intense technical session just for the goalkeeping group. After lunch, players will return to the field for a tactical session and small sided games with their age appropriate group. Each evening gives our GK instructors the opportunity to observe players in game situations and provide constructive, on-field feedback.
Unique Experience: Day campers will have a designated member of staff to meet and sign them out each day. This is often an option for our younger campers or those campers who prefer their own bed. This program has access to all that our residential training course has to offer, without sleeping onsite.
