The youth academy camps are open to players in the U10-U14 age groups, and the Finishing and Goalkeeping Academy is open to those playing in the U14-U17 age groups.

In addition to the ODP Residential Youth Academies, Cal South has added an all-new Elite Player Camp to its list, providing boys and girls from the U13-U16 age groups to join a 4-Day camps that will focus on functional training for specific positions within the game.

The Cal South PRO+ ODP Finishing and Goalkeeping Academies run simultaneously, but as separate camps. The Finishing Academy focuses solely on the player's ability to score goals, preparing scorers for any situation. This camp's specialized training develops a player's presence in the goal, tactical awareness, leadership, and consistency.

In addition to the on-field activities throughout the week, Cal South will introduce player to mental concepts as well as educational sessions on fitness, nutrition, ODP, college and the National Team programs.
