Session 2: Passing and Receiving Rondos / Combination Play
It is essential for any player to understand the various ways to combine with teammates to defeat defenders. Combination play takes accurate passing, movement off the ball, vision, and proper receiving to defeat defenders 2v1 or 3v2. We will concentrate on the skills necessary for possession and to recognize attacking opportunities in small group play.

It’s all about putting the ball in the back of the net, isn’t it? In addition to learning the proper timing and ball striking techniques, this camp will focus on scoring goals in 1v1 and small sided situations. Allowing players the opportunity to implement skills and to read the game at speed in a variety of situations to create better goal scorers.

Sessions 7 & 8: Mini World Cup camp (3v3, 5v5)
One of the biggest criticisms of American youth player development is that they don’t take the time to just play and enjoy the game. The experience and game situations in this session will immerse the player in all aspects of the game; defending, attacking, skill application & development all while benefiting from the fitness and fun the player will experience with friends and teammates.
