A COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE
Since 1988 Santa Clara Girls Soccer Camps has strived to create a positive environment that helps player's develop the confidence, motivation, and discipline needed to reach their full potential. While our day camps offer players the opportunity to enhance basic skill development vital to their success, our residential camps present one of the best avenues to train and play in front of Santa Clara coaching staff along with university and college coaches from all levels across the country (NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA, and Jr. College). Experienced staff will provide personalized instruction for every phase of soccer with special emphasis placed on technical development and one on one competition. Individual and group tactical concepts will also be introduced, reviewed, and communicated appropriately based on skill levels and age.
We are committed to all players leaving camp with enhanced knowledge and skills that can be applied to their game immediately. Not only will players be challenged by our camp curriculum, they will also enjoy creating new friendships with fellow players. Most importantly, we wish that all players leave with fond memories to share for years to come!
"Santa Clara Girls Soccer Camps was such a fun experience for me when I was growing up. Being active all day on and off the field and learning from some of the best coaches really helped me elevate my game and bring about more passion, excitement, and inspiration for what it means to be a better soccer player" - Aly Wagner, former Santa Clara Bronco, US National Team and Professional Soccer Player.
The Day Camp is for players ages 6 - 12 with an emphasis on technical development. The training sessions will cover such topics as dribbling, passing and receiving, heading and finishing. Campers will spend quality time with the ball at their feet. Small sided games, with low numbers in appropriate space, will be included to promote more touches on the ball.
** We currently do not offer a Goalkeeper option for our Day Camp Sessions
The Super Skills portion of camp is tailored to the player ages 10 - 12 with an emphasis on technical development. The training sessions will cover such topics as finishing, passing and receiving, heading and dribbling. All technical sessions will progress movements under the pressure of time and space and / or an opponent.
The HS Prospect portion of camp is tailored to the player ages 13 - 17 with an emphasis on technical development. However, a larger emphasis will be placed on individual, group, and team tactical development. Technical topics such as dribbling, passing, heading and finishing will be addressed. Tactical field sessions will be focus on positional play, awareness and reading the game, off the ball movement and combination play in the middle and attacking third of the field.
Our Residential Camp Week has a goalkeeping option. The focus of the Santa Clara Goalkeeper Camp is to improve the technical, tactical and physical aspects of the goalkeeper position. Campers will be taught and trained using similar methods as how the Santa Clara University Goalkeepers are trained. All aspects of technical goalkeeping will be trained including catching and handling, diving, high balls, angle play, footwork and distribution. There will be goalkeeper training in the morning and afternoon sessions. Goalkeepers will then be integrated into full sided matches in the evening.
Bring your team, train as a team. This is a great opportunity for overall team development. We will be happy to accommodate groups requesting to train and room together. To be considered a full team for the purposes of forming a camp team, we must have at least 12 of your team's field players enroll as a group. This is done most efficiently by having a team manager contact the camp director with a list of names. If the number drops below 12 before camp begins we will no longer be able to guarantee all players will be placed together on the same camp team.
WE DO NOT OFFER TEAM DISCOUNTS
