Here are just some of the exciting topics your child will be learning from our fantastic Premier coaches.

  • DEFENDING -- your child will learn the proper defensive technique and principles of pressure, cover and individual and team defense.
  • TACTICS -- your child will learn the tactics needed to understand the game and, for our Premier players, execute game plans. 
  • PLAY! -- Each day every player will have the opportunity to execute the topic of each day during the scrimmages part of the camp.  From 11-12 Monday through Thursday we will be scrimmaging and scoring goals.  Coaches will coach and stress the topic of the day and coach a team through that day's topic.
  • FUN!  -- We have Crazy Sock Day, Favorite Jersey Day, World Cup Day and lots and lots of games and contests throughout the week.
Each day will be full of fun, learning, confidence, prizes and more! Each player will receive a special Premier prize for attending the camp!  We look forward to taking your child to the next level in their soccer development!

Premier Player Progress Reports

Continually Investing in our Player's Development

One important way that Premier distinguishes itself is through the personal relationships we're able to develop with our players and families.  We must continually invest in our players' development and have an ongoing dialogue with players and parents about ways to improve player skills and experience.

Twice per year, Premier coaches provide a Premier Player Progress Report to each player.  The club will share the timing so you know when to expect your child's Progress Report.  We've included a blank Progress Report here so that you can see it.

The Progress Report provides our coaches with a tool to share a high level update on each child’s soccer development and as a tool for discussion with their parents.  This report is not intended to be a comprehensive evaluation of a child’s ability or as a substitute for individual discussions about how best to support each  child’s soccer development.  

Progress Reports help us further our mission to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of our players through soccer played at the highest levels of positive, age-appropriate training and competition.
