Camp Philosophy: For the past four summers, our Gustie Soccer Co-Ed Youth Camp, run by IN2 Soccer, has been a positive resource for soccer players in Minnesota. All campers will receive quality instruction, experience a positive learning environment and have fun during the week. Each session focuses on individual skill training, progressing from drills to small-sided games. We encourage players from various backgrounds and abilities to attend as we always strive to keep camp numbers smaller to allow for individual attention and coaching from our qualified staff.
Campers will be split up based on age and ability for the morning and afternoon sessions. Evening games will be more integrated, however still split on age, level and skill set. Some campers will even be exposed to playing 11v11 for the first time – one of the highlights of camp! The camp staff meets after every session to ensure all campers are receiving appropriate age and skill level training. Some movement may occur between training groups for the morning and afternoon session based on evaluation. Teams during the evening sessions will be continually mixed up.
New in 2018! Campers will improve their technique, performance and engagement through exposure to the methodology of the Barcelona Football Club. Their club philosophy focuses on optimizing each individual’s ability by improving the interconnections between five fundamental concepts of the game:
High individual and collective technical training
Focus on protecting the ball
Mobility without the ball
Functionality of players as a team
