The Camp Experience (Players Ages 8-14)

The 2019 Tiki-Taka Training Camp at St. Chris will uniquely combine both aspects of traditional outdoor soccer and the fast-paced futsal you see all across the world.

During the morning session, players will be split into age-appropriate groups to train on the outdoor training fields located on St. Christopher's grounds. While outside, players will focus on soccer-specific techniques such as shooting, passing, technical control of the ball, defensive positioning, offensive attacking, juggling, and so much more!

After lunch, players will pick up the pace a bit and start rotating through futsal games and training inside the state-of-the-art St. Christopher's Fieldhouse, as well as small-sided, skill-appropriate scrimmages on the outdoor playing fields. Players will participate in training designed to help develop fast/accurate passing, proper movement off the ball, and better knowledge of defending and attacking in man-down and equal-sided situations.
