Frank Pitt Soccer Overnight Camp
Girls Ages 12-18
Location: FMU-Hartzler Soccer Field-Florence, SC
Saturday, July 27, 2013 to Wednesday, July 31, 2013
The goal of the Elite Camp is to provide an
environment that stretches and prepares the highest
level players for college soccer. Our top college coaches
run each Elite training session, while current and
former players are on hand as assistants.
Campers are placed in skill appropriate situations
designed to enhance both technical skills and tactical
understanding of the game. Many nuances of the
modern game are taught and discussed; including
formation, transition and team shape.
High expectations are placed on the campers during
each of the sessions. The technical/tactical training
sessions are designed to replicate the FMU Soccer
Team's training sessions. Campers improve their abilities
through good coaching and tough
During the afternoon sessions, campers compete
against one another in full-sided games. This is the
time to put all of the morning lessons into a game situation.
Players begin to understand the various roles
each position on the field requires. The campers do all
of this and still have fun!
