Preseason Soccer Camp: Spring 2024

This spring, we are offering a “Preseason Camp” to players in our U10 Boys, U10 Girls, U13 Girls, U16 Boys and U16 Girls leagues.

These free, voluntary training sessions are listed below:

  • U10 Boys: 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. on Monday, February 26 and March 11
  • U10 Girls: 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 28 and March 13

The deadline to sign up is Thursday, February 22. Players must pre-register in order to participate.

Whether this is a player’s first season ever, or they’re a seasoned veteran, this is a great way to supplement your team’s weekly practice in a positive, encouraging environment.

Why have a Preseason Recreational League Soccer Camp?

A “Preseason Camp” environment has benefits for players, because they can meet and interact with their teammates, league-mates, and other league coaches. They will also learn some fundamental skills and knowledge to build on during this season and beyond. And, it can help set a positive tone for their season.

There are benefits for coaches, because Auburn Soccer Association staff can introduce and rehearse some “best coaching practices,” and provide a structured environment where our coaches can interact on a less competitive stage.

For the entire Recreational program (including parents), this serves as an important culture-building activity demonstrating “this is how we do things here.” For example, our players are not here to “Booooot it!” during games. We are teaching and learning soccer, having fun, and striving for a higher standard of play. We want to grow intelligent, creative soccer players who play the beautiful game beautifully. And, we are working hard to keep all of our players involved in soccer through their U19 years and beyond (as young coaches, referees, team sponsors, board and committee members, and eventually soccer parents with their own soccer kids).
