Residential Team Camps provide a week of training at a selected facility for all levels of serious travel teams. Typically, each camp will have teams of the same age and gender.  Each team trains individually during the day with a selected Soccer Academy staff coach and then competes in matches in the evening to incorporate the training concepts into match play conditions. The training program is custom designed to the team’s development objectives, based upon a survey we ask the team coach to complete. The program is flexible and can be amended during the week based upon our staff’s observations of the team’s performance and discussions with the team’s coach.
