Yo Juego con Destreza! (I play with skill)

FootHolde Skills Challenge Camps are back! We have been observing and coaching youth soccer players for almost 20 years, and the one thing we continue to run into is...that our players could be more skilled. At FootHolde, we hold our players accountable by asking them to "use your skill" in all practice and game situations. Players are not allowed the opportunity to just "boot it" and play such a beautiful game with no purpose or beauty. 

Therefore, we have re-created the Skill Challenge Camp, where players will get up to 5,000 touches per day (and we only train for half a day!) in various skill contests and competitions. Don't worry - the kids still get to play, play, and play more - as we finish each day with various small-sided game tournaments. Points are kept throughout the week and players are challenged daily.

Players will improve composure on the ball and confidence after a week at FootHolde Skills Challenge Camp. We challenge you to come try for yourself. You'll get better - guaranteed.

Three Camps in One Location

Tryout Prep Camps will host 3 separate camps in each location for 3 different types of players. Rugrat campers (ages 4-7) will follow our Rugrat curriculum based on individual dribbling games, physical fitness, and learning the rules of the game. Academy campers (ages 8-12) will follow our Academy curriculum, based on teaching the fundamentals of soccer thru fun games and skill competitions, and Select campers (U13-U17) will follow our Select curriculum based on advanced technical and tactical training with a focus on player development through small-sided competitions and individual/partner skill contests.
