Beginning this Friday, the San Francisco Elite Academy will hold six FREE "Elite Training" camps for youth soccer players, boys and girls, born between 2009 and 2005.
The camp program was conceived in conjunction with the San Francisco Vikings Soccer Club who generously facilitated the use of the new soccer field at Paul Goode in the Presidio to support this SFEA program. The San Francisco Elite academy will provide the first 80 players that register (enrollment is capped) expert coaching in technical development, an Elite Training t-shirt, and postcard evaluation at the end of the program. Each Elite Training camp will be led by Tom Atencio, USSF "A" License and SFEA Director of Player and Coaching Development, and include 4-5 other seasoned coaches, including Deejae Johnson (USSF A), Kurt Devlin (USSF A), Jeff Wilson (USSF A), and others.
"The goal of the Elite Training Camps program is to better serve youth soccer players looking for some extra time training, said Chris Flanagan, SFEA's Director of Soccer Operations. "In addition, we wanted the camps to involve our senior staff as well as other, local top coaches who we're delighted to work with in what can rightly be described as the perfect soccer setting of Paul Goode field."
Per Norcal and city playing rules, all players currently registered with a club should seek the permission of their Director of Coaching before registering for the camps. The registration link is available to those clubs that have pre-approval from their DOCs as well as interested individuals who contact SFEA about signing up.
