Each camp is guided by a UEFA certified trainer with many years of vast, international experience. The trainer focuses on careful redirection and correction of each player’s deficiencies, highlighting the importance of repetition and the base technical movements in soccer. The trainer will provide his knowledgeable observations to support the player in his after camp success.
In keeping with Italian Soccer Academy training philosophies developed over decades of experience, our training program focuses on:
|This deals with each player’s technical and tactical ability focusing on elements such as kicking, dribbling, passing, heading and tackling. Speed, strength, endurance and flexibility are vital elements of these sessions.|
|This aims to develop qualities such as multiple object tracking, timing & peripheral, intuition, divided focus, and rapid decision making. Strategies for self expression, creativity and imagination underpin this aspect of our training.|
|This helps players foster techniques for having control over their emotions or for regaining self control when lost. Motivation, self-esteem and a desire to be autonomous are cultivated in our camps.|
|This helps players learn how to work together as a group and team across multiple cultures. Respect for the rules, acceptance of the decisions of others and collaboration is a core part of these sessions.|
We encourage all players to aim high in their soccer ambitions. The Italian Soccer Academy Camp program will give advanced players the chance to envision what it would be like to be a player on the world stage in their adult life. Our program will allow them to sample the kind of training available at European clubs from an early age.
