Best Soccer Skilz Camp
The BEST Soccer SKILZ camp focuses on a different topic each day. Players are assigned to a group based on age and ability levels. Players must be at least five years of age to participate in the SKILZ camp.
The SKILZ Camps operate for 3 or 6 hours per day. Each day is carefully structured to ensure optimal learning.
Each camp day, players will extensively cover a new technical skill. Our goal of each topic is to introduce, refine and master the skill.

Throughout the week, all players will learn individual skills and transfer these skills into game situations.
