|MAP will be running Soccer Camps this summer focusing on Grades 1-8 as an introduction and mastery of skill in a fun learning environment. This will be achieved through maximum ball contacts, expert coaching, and daily homework assignments. Our camp structure will create an environment that will keep players invested in their own development as well as offering teams the opportunity to train together ahead of their upcoming season. Each day will focus on a different topic and players will be assigned to a group based on age and ability levels.|
|During the four days of camp players will extensively cover new technical skills, the goal of each topic is to introduce, refine, and master the skill. On the final day of camp players will participate in Skills Challenges, to help gauge development, as well as an end of camp tournament and individual evaluations.
