Residential Camp

An immersive week of soccer and outdoor activities

Boys & Girls | July 15 - 19

Residential camps are for our Academy players, U11-U13 (2012, 2013, 2014 birth years) interested in an immersive week of soccer filled with individual skill training, team competitions, team bonding and of course, fun! (If you’re a non-ASA player interested in attending please email Ben Hawkins for more information at [email protected]).

ASA licensed coaches will lead training sessions and stay at camp with the campers throughout the week. Residential Camp will take place at Mercersburg Academy, about two hours away in Pennsylvania. Transportation will be provided to and from camp on Monday morning and Friday afternoon.
