This year, we offer our hugely successful 4-day Finishing and Goalkeeping Camps for boys and girls and a 4-day All-Girls Elite Development Camp. New for 2022 is a 4-Day Positional Residential Camp open to both boys and girls. After the completion of each year’s Pro+ ODP Summer Camps, we invite 36 players from our Residential and/or Morning Camps to attend our ODP Winter Player Pool training sessions, giving these players an opportunity to compete for a roster spot and possibly represent Cal South at the US Youth Soccer West ODP Championships the following January.
All Girls Elite Development Camp
- The most popular camp with 12 top training sessions, access to the swimming pool, and indoor soccer games
- The players are grouped by year of birth and/or teams
- Talent show or dance-off competitions
- Swimming pool
- Indoor soccer
Our Finishing and Goalkeeping Camps run simultaneously, but as totally separate camps:
- The Finishing side of this camp focuses solely on the player’s ability to score goals, preparing scorers for any situation. Our mission is to have players take hundreds of shots through the four days of the camp. The camp’s theme is “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take!”
- The Goalkeeping side of this Camp focuses on one of the most demanding and mentally challenging positions on the field. We make sure that the players face hundreds of different types of shots over the five days of camp. This camp’s specialized training develops a player’s presence in the goal, as well as their tactical awareness, leadership, and consistency. In 2023 we had 50 goalkeepers attend the camp where they were challenged technically, tactically, and physically.
New for 2024: This year we have added an Elite Player Development Camp so players can focus and better understanding the roles and responsibilities in the game at their position.
- We will introduce to players the term “position-specific”: If you play as an outside back, your role in possession of the ball is different than that of a center back. Likewise, looking up the field, a wide forward player’s role and responsibilities are different from those of a center forward. Helping players break down these differences will be done through functional training sessions and classroom sessions. All players must play with the ball and without the ball.
In addition to the on-field activities throughout the week at all of our camps, we will introduce mental concepts as well as educational sessions on fitness, nutrition, PRO+ ODP, college, and the National Team programs.
Finally, each camp offer a series of 13 challenging training sessions which shall test each player’s game knowledge to the max both on the field and off the field.
