ABYSA FUNdamentals Soccer Camp is a great way for your child to spend a week having fun, while playing the world’s most popular sport! Each day, campers work on their skills, play games, and swim at the pool—while enjoying the other campers and the staff. We offer a games-centered teaching approach that enriches players’ passion for soccer while teaching proper soccer techniques for future soccer success. Throughout the week the will work on various techniques or skills such as dribbling, passing, receiving, shielding, and shooting.
- Half-day camps for 5-6 year olds (9 AM – 12PM / Half-day campers will not go to the pool) $115/week
- Full-day camps for ages 7-14. (9AM -4PM) $195/week
- Early Bird Drop off available at 7:30 AM for additional fee $15/week
All campers are placed in proper age groups to ensure developmentally appropriate teaching and competition. Children 11-14 will receive individual and small group tactical instruction—this is ideal for Recreation, Challenge, and younger Classic players.
Our FUNdamentals camps run most of the weeks of the summer. Annually, we offer eight weeks of summer camp and one week of spring break camp.
