The overall goal of the Camp is to educate and challenge players of all levels, while focusing the serious soccer player towards achieving their next level.
Camp will offer both technical and tactical sessions, delivered by our nationally recognized coaching staff. Campers will be placed into age and ability specific groups as to optimize the environment for each player’s development.
Our curriculum is designed to challenge each player through the combination of small and big-sided match play coupled with daily training sessions focused on various technical and tactical aspects. A recruiting seminar for high school campers will be offered during camp.
This camp is geared toward the serious soccer player who has aspirations of playing in high school, college or beyond.
Specialized goalkeeping sessions are held during the week by TCU’s Goalkeeper coach – Kelsey Davis, former USA National Team GK. At the Eric Bell Soccer Academy, the goalkeeper is not the “forgotten player.” Our experienced goalkeeping staff will teach you the key technical, tactical, psychological, and physical aspects of this crucial position. Individualized training and evaluation is only one aspect of our first-rate goalkeeping program.
The training experience is further enhanced as the goalkeepers are incorporated into small and large group training activities with the field players. These match-related activities provide the goalkeepers with an opportunity to blend technical fundamentals with tactical decision-making. The combination of individual and team training is an integral part in the development of a goalkeeper and the goalkeepers will be evaluated as they perform individually and in 11v11 matches every day.
Housing and Meals
Residential campers will utilize the same facilities as the TCU Soccer Team. During camp, residential campers will stay in the newly built TCU Dormitories and dine at the on campus dining halls to get the full experience of a TCU soccer player. Campers will be housed two in a room and one roommate request will be accepted per application. Residential Campers will be given 3 meals each day. Dinner on July 10 will be the first meal served and breakfast on July 13 will be the final meal.
