Description
 

We would like to invite all PSA soccer players to our 16th annual Brit-Am Residential soccer camp. Players who would like to use the summer to improve their individual skills and knowledge of the game will benefit from the experience of training with professional coaches, including some of PSA's own coaches. 

 

Brit-Am Soccer Academy has designed and repeatedly refined the residential program to meet the needs of the players on an individual and team level in today's fast-flowing game. Players will be challenged throughout, and we can customize the program for those who come with a group of teammates or an entire team.

 

Goalkeepers will train together in the morning session with our keeper trainer before working with the training in their groups at the afternoon and evening practices. Goalkeeping topics covered will include:

 

GOALKEEPER TRAINING

 

  • Footwork, Balance and positioning
  • Shot stopping
  • Dealing with crosses
  • Diving for saves, deflections and 1v1’s
  • Kicking and distribution
  • Decision making and communication
  • Real game situations

 

 

During our morning session we outfield players will concentrate on technical training, covering the following topics:

 

  • Dribbling
  • Running with the ball
  • Fakes & turns
  • Taking on opponents (1v1, 2v2)
  • Speed, agility & conditioning
  • Passing (short, drives, chips, curls)
  • Shooting (power shots & finishing)
  • Defending (1v1, 2v2)
  • Ball control (ground, bouncing and out of the air)
  • Heading (defending & attacking)

 

Outfield players and Goalkeepers progress to the essentials of team play and tactics in the early afternoon session with emphasis on being creative and being able to know what to do under pressure. Some of the topics covered will be:

 

  • Central Combination play towards goal
  • Wide Combination play to create scoring chances from the flanks
  • Building out of the back
  • Switching the point of attack
  • Learning & Understanding player positions
  • Team Pressure to win back possession (High, Medium & Low)
  • Keeping possession for the team (building confidence on the ball)
  • Building play through the middle of the field

 

The late afternoon session is held inside the classroom where the players will get to rest physically but still get to learn more and improve on their knowledge of the game. Video sessions and group discussions will be used to challenge the players mentally and help them think about the game in a way that they may not have done before.

 

During our evening session, players are encouraged to play freely and practice all that they have been working on during the week. This is done by creating a game environment. Players get to play in a scrimmage format against the other players at the camp.

 

Away from the field we also like to maintain a soccer learning atmosphere and we do this through some of the following activities:

 

  • Video sessions
  • Discussions on Nutrition, Health & Fitness
  • Simple soccer assignments
  • Soccer Quiz night
  • Written Player evaluations
