The residential camp experience is designed to build skills and understanding of the game in an inclusive and safe learning environment!
This residential camp elevates the engagement, connection, and development of our players to a higher level. The camp will incorporate additional key components of developing elite potential like ‘Team-building and Culture’, ‘Futsal’, and ‘Young Leadership’ as the staff maximize the added opportunity and time with players.
Residential programming is split into 3 sections, with each focusing on a particular need within the elite player development spectrum:
- Planning: The understanding of the preparation required across the spectrum of player development topics that sets the player up for success in the execution phase
- Execution: The physical implementation and execution of the skills developed in the planning phase.
- Reflection: The time we need to reflect upon the process that ‘I as a player’ have gone through, and the outcome of my actions… ‘Has my understanding allowed me to execute, and how did my execution go?’
The over-arching pillars of Elite Camps allow our Elite staff to repeat a process that we believe has a significant impact on the learning and development of players. Utilizing the full quality of the Regis University Campus and the additional time that this residential program creates, we will seek to maximize the attendees’ understanding, relative to their age, in an insightful, safe, and engaging manner.
Delivered by Elite Department Coaches and Staff, additional support will be provided by SafeSport accredited ‘parent chaperones’ specifically aimed at providing the attendees with understanding and comfortable surroundings during the overnight stays. (Should you be interested in providing this service during the week please indicate during registration).
Additionally, this camp is now available for players to attend without the overnight component. Players are welcome to attend for the full day, and be picked up prior to the evening meal on a daily basis.
