Summer Soccer Academy


2019 MSYSA

Summer Soccer Academy





The Maryland State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA) 2019 Summer Soccer Academy is being held at the Saint James School located in beautiful Hagerstown, Maryland and is open to male and female players born in 2003 through 2009.

“We are excited to return to this venue for our camp again this year. Saint James combines the scenic location, fantastic facilities and the benefits of a smaller campus that we prefer,” MSYSA President Mark Cantor said. “With the momentum and popularity the camp has earned in the past few years, we are thrilled to be able to return to such a great location that can grow with the camp moving forward!”


Saint James School


Don't miss out on this opportunity to develop technical and tactical ability with an outstanding coaching staff comprised of Olympic Development Program (ODP) coaches (including a dedicated goalkeeper staff). This camp is open to all serious soccer players regardless of ODP participation.

Residential Camps are a wonderful opportunity for your player or team to develop on and off the field in the 'off' season. We are hosting our camp at a beautiful athletic facility with air conditioned dorms, fantastic food and around the clock supervision and security.


While under the experienced supervision of staff with an 8 to 1 ratio, players engage in fun, age-appropriate, tactical and technical activities throughout the week. These include curriculum-based activities and daily contests, full-sided game play and a 4v4 tournament.

Current Olympic Development Program (ODP) coaches staff the camp with former ODP players as counselors, ensuring that campers are receiving the best training environment possible!
