ASA summer camps offer a fun environment where youth can strengthen their physical, mental, and technical skills in a Recreational and/or Advanced environment. In addition to engaging skill building games, campers will have the opportunity to compete in our very own camp wide World Cup Tournament and small sided games on a daily basis.
Led by licensed ASA staff coaches, the camp series provides an invaluable opportunity for players to be instructed and evaluated by an excellent team of highly qualified coaches.
*Advanced camps are for players in the academy/travel program or persons who have been given permission to attend by the ASA technical staff.

Advanced Evening Camps
Attacking and Defending Focus: This camp will provide players with numerous opportunities to finish on goal in a variety of ways and game like situations. Coaches will highlight individual, small group and team attacking principles while at the same time addressing the defensive requirements of players in different scenerios.
Ball Mastery and Finishing Focus: Developing the individual player in the small-sided format (1v1, 2v1, 2v2, 3v2, 3v3, 4v3, 4v4). Players will not only learn how to beat players off the dribble and pass but where and when on the field is most appropriate within the club curriculum and philosophy of play. Through repetition and rehearsal players will build the confidence and understanding to recognize when a 1v1 situation is good for the player and good for the team.
Goalkeeper Training Focus: Shot stopping involves technique, agility, reactions and awareness. Goalkeepers will be trained in how to save shots from different angles, proper footwork to prepare the body and hands, communication techniques to organize the defense and understand how to distribute the ball to your teammates to build the play and start the attack.
U13-U15 Players: Each session will begin each evening with a 60 minute workout led by our Director of Injury Prevention & Fitness, Jennifer Schwartz-Biggle (coach Jenn). This is an opportunity for our players to participate in a calculated sport performance optimization routine over the four (4) evenings. Included in the 60 minute session will be core work, speed training, resistance training, footwork and plyometrics.
