This summer, Cal Soccer will be offering two weeks of Junior Premier & Premier Academy. Our goal at these academies is the same as it has been for the past ten years and is designed for advanced level individual players and teams! We offer a rigorous training regimen designed to identify, evaluate, and prepare players seeking to compete at the elite level in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. Technical development with the ball is a major focus of the camp to ensure all of our players leave at the end of the week as more refined and developed players. Specific Goalkeeper Training is offered to all interested players.
A detailed registration packet containing check-in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers prior to camp. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
Per NCAA rules, Cal Soccer Academy & Camps are open to any and all entrants. Enrollment in our camps is limited only by age, gender, and capacity restrictions as specified by each camp
