The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
The mission of the Indiana Soccer Player Development Camps is to offer professional training for all players at any skill level designed in a fun but challenging age appropriate environment aimed at player development. The goals are to expose each player to different coaching styles, mixed with players from different areas, and to raise the overall ability level and general soccer awareness of each individual player. Players will be encouraged to have fun in the game, challenge themselves in positive training environments and learn to love the game of soccer!
The Player Development Program will be conducted by a professional coaching staff consisting of nationally licensed coaches. The philosophy of "the game is the best teacher" will be implemented through each Player Development Program session. Each session will focus on the proper technique to perform each skill combined with the tactical aspects and physical aspects of the game while blending the proper mental approach to achieving the desired level. We believe that players improve from learning the proper skills, being challenged through the game, and through positive encouragement, hard work, and determination. Players will also have the opportunity to develop their technical skills in small group play and game scenarios. The coaching staff will insure the camps create a fun and challenging environment that also builds the confidence of each player to improve their skills and advance their individual game.
Our player development camps programming include but are not limited to goalkeeper/striker camps. These camps are split up into 2 parts. The first half of the camp consists of drills that pertain to the position your camper is interested in. Goalkeepers will train in their own groups based on age and skill level, and strikers will train in their own groups based on age and skill level. During the second half of camp, the groups are combined so the campers can use the skills learned in the first half against the opposing position.
Goalkeeper camps are for players that are goalkeepers or players that are interested in becoming a goalkeeper. To learn more about this camp please follow this link can be found on the the Goalkeeper Camp page of our website.
Player Development Camps are geared towards the younger player. You may find out more about this camp by going to our Camps page on our website.
