The Ray Reid Soccer School's Elite Academy held at UConn features top-level coaches, a cutting-edge training curriculum, and first class facilities at the beautiful University of Connecticut. This five-day, four-night instructional camp - Session I is July 9 - 13 & Session II is July 16 - 20 - is open to all boys ages 9 - 18.

Led by National Champion Collegiate Coach and Four-Time Coach of the Year Ray Reid, we focus on helping each player improve and develop his skills in a challenging but fun environment. We'll do that with a comprehensive soccer training schedule - two training sessions, small-sided activities and league matches each day. Our premier camp coaching staff will work on technical skills and cover functional training by position - such as individual and team defending, midfield play and possession, final third work and finishing for strikers - and we offer specialized training for goalkeepers as part of our Goalkeeper School. Located on the UConn campus, we have access to state-of-the art facilities, such as the Shenkman Indoor Training Center in case of rain.

In addition to our soccer programming, campers will enjoy meals in UConn's North Quad Dining Hall and have the opportunity to take a swim at the UConn pool. We also offer a range of fun down-time activities, like the very popular FIFA Soccer video game tournament, movie night at the Quad, and we have a fully stocked Camp Store.

Players are invited to register as individuals or come as a group and Train with Your Team! (call the camp office at 860-674-1500 for details about special rates for groups of 10 or more). As part of registration, all players receive an adidas soccer ball (a $30 value) and a camp tee-shirt. And, at the conclusion of camp, each player will received a personalized, written Player Evaluation.

We are once again offering a final day end of the day pick-up Experience Campus Option after rave reviews from last year!
