The Cal South ODP Day Camps are designed for boys and girls in the U8-U14 brackets committed to reaching the highest level open to them in the sport, and this year enter their fifteenth year of promoting Excellence in Youth Soccer in Southern California. They are "developmental" in that our experienced camp staff, already used to dealing with and developing youth soccer talent at the state, regional and national levels, will build on and improve the technical and tactical
skills that players have acquired during the soccer year. Our program creates a challenging environment where each player will learn about themselves and their strengths and weaknesses. Players are encouraged to compete both in and outside of their comfort zones, and will be given the knowledge and tools to improve.
We have scheduled camps in strategic locations throughout Southern California this summer to provide every player in the U8-U14 age groups an opportunity to attend. Each camp lasts three hours each day, and maximizes the quality of that time. Each group has a low coach-to-player ratio, which optimizes the individual development of each player. For goalkeepers, every session includes specific goalkeeping training with our Goalkeeping Academy staff coaches.
Each day, the coaches will emphasize tactics, speed of play, speed of thought, movement with and without the ball, and technical speed. Making good decisions under pressure will be the theme of the week, and players will have the opportunity to apply what has been taught each day under match conditions. At the end of the week, each player receives a valuable personal evaluation from their coach, and will feel challenged and eager to take their game to the next level.
