This Summer, add color to your game

Summer is an important time for soccer players. It's when they can focus the most on training and, as a result, make huge strides in their development and transform as a player before the fall season. That's why Avila Creative Soccer's Summer Camp is so important. Because players can train all they want, they get to take their creative skills as far as they want.

All-You-Can-Train Camp

This is an all-you-can-train camp, so come everyday to attend up to two classes each day–one age-appropriate Small Group Class and one Specialty Skills Class (See descriptions below). Small Group Skills Classes and Specialty Skills Classes are always scheduled back to back, alternating throughout the day.

A Schedule that Revolves around Yours

Whether you want to come to one or two classes a day, a couple weeks or the whole summer, we offer the flexibility that will work with your busy schedule. We offer a range of classes for a range of needs–because every soccer player has their own unique strengths and weaknesses.

There are some Avila Skills classes that we only see during our iconic camps, including Coach Eryck's personal favorite–Nutmegging. Some of the drills, skills and moves, not to mention whimsical subjects like Soccer Tennis, we only review in depth at this time of the year! Read about the classes below

Camp Description

Parents, have you ever watched your child on game day and thought, "If they would only be more assertive on the field!" Assertiveness starts with conviction. The player not only needs the skill set to excel but the clear understanding of what his role should be within the context of a group. For that reason, there is duality to our camp format.

Small Group is about more than just the skills. Most players are aware of the movements of the adversaries, which it turns out is of little use. In reality, it is the positions of their own teammates that they should be tracking too. Small Group uses creative skills and interactive drills to teach awareness of the unit. They learn to start off in a triangle formation, then have the confidence to abandon that form in hot pursuit of the ball, while having the mindfulness to recreate the triangle somewhere else.

Specialty Skills concentrates on the deconstruction of specific soccer skills. The entire class is used to break down one specific skill into its phases and elements using the universal mechanical principles that govern all movement. This is what we are known for and creative coaching is the key. So this Summer, our Specialty Classes will feature new curriculums from the old favorites that are proven winners. Our goal is not only development, but to surprise your child each and every time they attend. See our Specialty Skills Classes page for more detail.

New2 The Art of Nutmegging - This fun class actually takes a scientific approach to Coach Eryck's favorite skill (and laughable source of pride) Nutmegging! Tricks of the trade are revealed in this can't-miss class for the die hard!
New2 Soccer Tennis - This class is a blast! Players gain insight as they strategize and contemplate questions: Can the team in possession move their opponents into a poor position? Do they strike at the right time and play safely when needed? Can the defenders read their opponents intentions and counter them?
  Shooting Mechanics - Teaches all aspects of shooting, from plant foot positioning to angle of release. We will also work on specialty kicks, such as penalty kicks and bicycle kicks (overhead kicks). To see Shooting Mechanics being broken down, check out this video »
  Juggling - Promotes "two-footedness" and creative potential. We'll dare to deconstruct clever, artistic maneuvers that have been attempted and honed by both "playground legends" and famous professional players alike.
  Defending - Helps players gain clarity on jockeying and delaying, stabbing at the ball, shepherding, foot and hip positioning, aggressive play, decision making and slide tackling.
  Dribbling - Introduces clever moves that help your child reach a new level of brilliance.
  Tactical Awareness - Demonstrates the right positions on the field. This includes blind-side runs, seams and passing lanes, switching the point of attack, marking space versus players, sideways-on positioning, passing and moving.
  Specialty Kicks - Teaches the secrets of specialty finishing, including bicycle (overhead), scissor, banana, in-swingers, corner kicks and set pieces from outside the box.
  Perfect Penalty Kicks - Players are guided through the process and pressure associated with penalty kick taking. Everything — such as volunteering for this high-stakes moment, choosing the correct corner, approaching the ball with the correct cadence and rhythm — is reviewed.
  Goalie Class - Teaches the mechanics, techniques of diving and how to make the all-important “second save.” Our 12-inch diving mat allows players to train without fear, and in turn, develop the ferocity and skill needed to defend the goal.
