CVU Striker/Keeper Camp-
Our Striker/Keeper Camp is one of the most popular summer camps we offer. This camp focuses around the most exciting parts of soccer which are scoring goals and stopping them! Keepers will learn to sharpen up their techniques on crosses, organize their backlines, and improve their shot stopping abilities. Field players will learn to create space to score as well as improve their ball striking ability and finishing. We encourage players of all positions to attend as goals aren't just for forwards. We will help midfielders and defenders improve their ability to score goals also.
