Adult Residential Camps

The Only Adult Residential Coed Camp in the USA

Unfortunately we are unable to run the Residential Adult Camp this summer due to Covid19. It would have be great to put the current events behind us for a week and have some fun on the soccer field, but it is not to be. 

The University of Mary Washington has informed us that their campus and facilities will be closed this summer. We looked at other options but with all the uncertainty and not wanting to put any of our loyal campers at unnecessary risk we are going to have to cancel the camp for this year.

Stay Safe and we will look forward to seeing you in the summer 2021



Soccer Academy’s 2020 Adult Residential Camp will take place at the following location and dates:

July 8-12   University of Mary Washington, Fredericksburg, VA

Cost - $775 Resident and $525 Extended Day 

Soccer Academy’s Adult Camps are offered to individual players or groups who are ages 21 years old and up. These popular camps offer adult players the opportunity to develop their technical and tactical performance.

Adult players of all levels are welcome at our five day residential camp. Our program welcomes players from all playing experiences, as skills groups are developed to ensure that all players will learn, improve and enjoy an outstanding week of soccer. Individual, as well as team development is always our main objective for the week.

Soccer Academy is unique in having coaches who have experience working with adult players, and who make the camp enjoyable. We truly have a variety of excellent coaches that enjoy spreading their love of the game with fellow players.

Whether you are looking to improve playing skills or enhance your coaching abilities, our Adult Camps are designed to meet your needs. Technical training focuses on improving individual ball skills through emphasis on proper footwork, creativity with the ball, advanced passing and shooting and 1v1 exercises. Tactical performance is improved through small-sided games and activities, which focus on the principles of attack and defense, positional play and combination plays.

Technical training sessions focus on improving ball skills with the emphasis on:

• Combination plays

• Development of positional play

• Importance of each individual role

• Psychology of performance

Tactical performance is improved by small sided games and activities, which focus on:

• Creativity in attacking play 

• Importance of transitional play

Goalkeeping is included at the Residential Camp and at selected sites for Adult Day Camps.
