World Cup Soccer Camp aims to develop proper techniques and skills necessary to understand and play the game. On the first night of camp, players are assessed and placed in groups based on age and ability. Group sizes do not exceed 15 players per coach. The average age range in a group is 2 years. At the end of camp, the coaches will reassess each camper and send him/her home with a written evaluation containing specific instruction for improvement.

Note: Boys and girls are trained in separate groups.
