In addition to our Recreational, Academy and Advanced Programs, Altitude Football Club offers many different camps and training academies throughout the year. All camps and academies are organized and lead by staff, to ensure that players are provided with developmentally appropriate training. Camps are skill focused and help players advance in specific areas of the game. In a camp we will warm up, work drills, and then scrimmage to put practice to the test.
The Birth Year Tryout camp is designed for players that will tryout for one of our Advanced or Academy programs. The Birth Year Tryout camp will work mainly on technical skills: passing, receiving, finishing, and dribbling. Each day will end with a scrimmage so we can evaluate each player in a game situation.
Altitude’s Dutch Soccer camp is designed to develop foundational skill and give players the knowledge they need to continue developing throughout the year. Our curriculum is tailored to the cognitive soccer development needs of various ages and skill levels. Whether your child is a beginner or an advanced player, our experienced coaching team will maximize your child’s potential and improve their knowledge of the world’s most popular game. Altitude strives to create a fun and exciting soccer atmosphere for kids to play and learn. We teach soccer by playing soccer and by relating examples found through scrimmage to game situations. Our players will gain the skills and knowledge they need to play with confidence and to continue developing in their soccer league throughout the year.
Keeper and Finisher camps are designed to focus on specific aspects of the game. Additional coaches are brought in to help develop player’s skill in finishing the ball (from whatever position they play on the field) and for keepers, to better defend goals. Often we will bring the finisher and keeper groups together to utilize the other side (finishers or keepers) to help each hone their skill.
The Altitude recreational Day Camp is fun way to spend the summer. Players will arrive and immediately get started with a fun group game. During the morning session, players will learn basic technical skills with a soccer ball. Players will then break for lunch, where they will eat and participate in fun group activities and icebreakers. In the afternoon, players will return to big group activities and finish the day with a scrimmage. These camps are focused around fun, socialization and interpersonal skills as much as soccer. Participants often tell us they want to come back for additional weeks. These camps are great for the rookie or even the seasoned veteran. Our staff keeps it fun and safe, so be sure to reserve your spot today.
We will work on balance, agility, and explosive speed. We will incorporate the ladder, hurdles, agility sticks, and box jumps to help each individual gain explosive speed needed for soccer. The coach to player ration will be 1:7 or 1:8. In this environment we are able to focus on technique, form and athletic conditioning.
