The Junior Elite Camp, for boys, ages 9-13, is designed for players looking to take the next steps in their competitive soccer development. The curriculum and training environment will provide an increased focus on the technical, tactical, mental, and physical elements of the game. Players will be challenged daily with coaching from the Portland Pilots Men’s Soccer staff as well as other experienced college coaches. Goalkeeper specific training will also be available throughout the duration of camp. Each player will receive a written evaluation at the end of camp. The Junior Elite Camp is also open to club teams. We require that 12 field players from your team sign-up in order to train together.
