ATSC Summer Soccer Skills Camp
The ATSC Summer Soccer Skills Camp will be held the weeks of July 26-30, 2004 and August 2-6, 2004, from 5:30-8pm both weeks. (There will be 2 separate weeks of camp, not one long 2 week camp.) Camp will be held at Williamsburg MS
field III. The camp is for travel players and travel teams and will have advanced training for players in specific age groups. We will offer age appropriate groups and the training will reflect the abilities of the players.
We will be offering 2 types of camps for the Club.
The first session, July 26-30, will focus on individual player skills development and is meant for the younger age groups ranging from U9 through U13 interested in developing their technical abilities and ball skills. The program is designed to improve a players ability to shoot, receive, pass and dribble the ball effectively at speed and under pressure. Each day will focus on a different skill set culminating in a final day World Cup small-sided soccer tournament. Older players are also welcome.
The second session, August 2-6, will be a team training camp. We will develop a program specifically designed for each ATSC team that attends. Grant Smith
, ATSC Director of Coaching, will meet with each team's coach to determine what tactical and technical development is most needed and the week-long program will focus on those specific needs. This is a great way for teams to train together over the summer and improve their level of play. Coaches are encouraged to attend.
Camp staff will consist of current professional soccer coaches and former National Team, professional, and collegiate soccer players. The staff is highly experienced and they share a common coaching philosophy of motivating players through positive feedback and emotional support, which translates into a fun and challenging atmosphere for the players to thrive in and improve.
All players will receive a camp shirt and mini-juggle ball. Cost is $150 per week and the registration deadline is July 21, 2004.

In the 70's the great Dutch Coach Wiel Coerver, aiming to improve individual soccer skills and develop more effective attacking players, created a new way to teach soccer. Coerver first analyzed the great players on slow motion video and came to the conclusion that many of their one-on-one and control skills could be broken down and taught to most players. From these few "moves" of great players, he and his fellow Directors devised hudnreds of Individual and Group exercises and games which formed the basis of the Coerver™ Coaching events and products.
