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 14 - 18 & Session II is July 21 - 25 - 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.
Campers will stay in UConn's West Dormitories in the heart of campus and enjoy meals in nearby McMahon Dining Hall. While not playing soccer, they will have the opportunity to take a swim at the UConn pool and enjoy time with friends in West Quad (playing soccer volleyball, enjoying Movie Nights, etc.). In addition. We have a fully stocked Camp Store, which includes snacks, drinks and soccer apparel.
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 two camp tee-shirts. And, at the conclusion of camp, each player will received a personalized, written Player Evaluation.
Join us this summer at the 2019 Elite Academy held at UConn. This 5-day instructional training camp staffed by some of the country's top coaches will help you improve as a player while developing a greater love of the game. Register early and reserve your spot at one or both of our Elite Academy Sessions. Please do not hesitate to call the camp office with any questions or to inquire about special group rates at 860-674-1500.
