Afrims Sports Park, 969 Watervliet Shaker Rd, Colonie, NY 12205, USA

About the event

This one day camp is open for all players ages 6-15 who are eager to develop their technical skills and tactical knowledge in a fun, competitive environment. The main focuses of the camp will be:

  1. Ways to create more scoring opportunities
  2. Defending in different situations

Whether the player primarily plays defense or forward, all players will participate in all aspects of the camp because we feel it is important to have a wide range of skills. As players move up to different levels in their soccer career, coaches may put them at different positions which is why this variety of skills and knowledge are crucial. Also, players will compete in skill challenges and scrimmages with awards being given out at the end of the day for the player with the most points in each group.

**If you sign up as a goalkeeper, you will take part in technical training from 9-11am and then play in goal for the scrimmages from 11-12pm. Goalkeepers are welcome to stay the full day and will get some work in the field while still playing goalie in games/activities if they want. Please reach out to if you have any questions about the goalkeeping portion of camp.**
