Mohan Telfer, Maret boys varsity and middle School Head Coach, will be offering eight weeks of camps for various age groups and skill levels. Each week will feature three different options for players of varying skill levels. Additionally, goalkeeper training will be offered for all six weeks.

The primary goal of the camp is to strengthen the cognitive ability of each player while improving their technical level to successfully execute on the field of play. The structure of the training sessions will be as follows:
  • Morning Sessions (9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.)—A combination of skill acquisition and tactical awareness.
  • Afternoon sessions (1:00-3:00 p.m.)—Small-sided/futsal games and film study.
Players will be divided into training groups by age and skill level with a low camper-to-trainer ratio to ensure that enough individual instruction is given to each camp attendee. We will offer indoor climate-controlled futsal options for the players when the temperatures are too high for outside play.

The full-day program will run from 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m., and participants should bring a bag lunch (no refrigeration available). We will break from 12:00–1:00 p.m. each day for lunch and recovery. All campers should also wear proper shoes for both outdoor and indoor soccer. Bring a ball, sunscreen, and a water bottle.
Please note:
  • Participants should provide their own lunch (that does not need to be refrigerated) and a water bottle.
  • We do not offer before or after care for summer camps.
