FootHolde would like to thank all of you who make this possible!

I am writing to let everyone know how much FootHolde appreciates YOU - our campers.

In 2003, I called a meeting with eight high school coaches to share my vision for a soccer camp focused on developing Minnesota’s high school-aged players. They loved it! They were all on board to coach. Two months later, FootHolde: Twin Cities Select was born - a one week intensive soccer camp for older competitive boys and another separate week for girls. There were 160 boys and 120 girls that attended.

In 2004, we added the Academy ages 9-12 and ran two camps in Cottage Grove. Our focus was capturing the fun and excitement for the game while teaching younger players the mechanics and tactics to becoming a better soccer player. Seven years and 5,000 kids later (and a boatload of work!), Footholde is still growing strong and steady...and we have YOU all to thank!

The memories of 14,000 gallons of water spraying over 150 smiling kids, the relationships between Minnesota’s most competitive older players and the FootHolde coaches, the IGH boys’ crew, the Hopkins boys’ crew, the Woodbury boys’ crew, the Lakeville girls, the Wayzata Premier girls, the Bloomington high school boys, the Farmington group at Lakeville, the Apple Valley campers, the TRSA club campers, and the crazy fun Prior Lake club - are what make it all worth it. 

I started FootHolde because I love working with and coaching kids - kids of all ages and all levels. I enjoy soccer, also, but the positive personal relationships are what keep it fun and interesting. At FootHolde, we create and help develop great soccer players, as well as great human beings. And a major part of why we’re successful is YOU!

Your loyalty to FootHolde has allowed us to provide the best soccer camp experience for all Minnesota players. You have helped us by spreading the good FootHolde word! We appreciate that and thank you. We need your help and ask that you continue to let other families in your club and neighborhood know about the positive energy and quality coaching players receive when attending FootHolde Soccer Camps and Clinics.

Thanks for being you. I look forward to seeing everyone and their friends on the field this summer!
