Summer Striker/GK Camps





These Goalkeeper/Striker camps will focus on the individual development for each player in a very specialized training/camp environment.
Which both camps will be a great opportunity for each player to learn and develop at their positions.

The clinic will be taught by our Pride DOC's Brian Contreras and Dave Meyer. More information on camp directors and coaches will be attached at the bottom of this website page.

* Finishing off the turn 
* 1v1 Moves to beat a defender
* Breakaways
