FC MIRAGE 2019 AUGUST CAMPS
For over fourteen years, FC Mirage has offered Summer Camps for boys and girls, to provide a fun off-season avenue for players to improve their individual foot skills and strengthen their game understanding. 90% of camp exercises involve players working with a ball to maximize their amount of touches in a two-hour camp period. As vacation plans vary, this summer we are three camp options in August.

Though each camp day focuses on a different topic, at least three camp days are dedicated to improving individual foot skills. Players are urged to set individual goals at the start of the week and work to reach/surpass them by the end of the week. All exercises and games involve structured stops to correct individual mechanics and get players to question/understand their own decision making. Players learn through making mistakes, improving upon them and observing others in action.
The second half of the week is comprised of small-sided games where players utilize familiar and newly acquired skills in a competitive setting. Small-sided games allow for more one on one time with the coach, which provides the opportunity for questions and answers, as well as a non-pressured environment to discuss strategies for improving a player’s soccer knowledge.
Week 1 August Camp: Players are grouped to be age appropriate, so there is an introductory format for younger players and more advanced for older players.
Week 2 Pre-Season Camp – Morning 2012-2009 Birth Years: Structured toward players younger players and those new to travel soccer. Focus on improving individual skills with an emphasis on games and gameplay.
