Summer Schedule 2020
Weekly Camps – Bedford Cancelled, MEDFIELD CAMPS ARE ON!
Summer Training Series – 7 Trainings – Burlington & Cambridge Cancelled – STONEHAM, WELLESLEY, & BRAINTREE ARE ON!
Summer Program Options
We have two different types of summer programs we run:
1) Weekly Camps that will run Monday to Friday for one week
2) Nightly Training Series that meet 1X week thru late June thru August
Either program will include key skill development components along with soccer matches. There will be a heavy emphasis placed on footwork, passing, and shooting. The philosophy behind our training programs is that the mastery of fundamental soccer movements will lead to increased performance. Mastery of these movements is achieved using our age appropriate system of drills designed to build muscle memory. Our summer and winter clinics are designed for players of all abilities, benefitting novice to elite level players.
Players will be grouped in the summer into the best possible fit based on age, sex, and skill level.
Week Long Camps
Our weekly camps run Monday to Friday in two different locations: Medfield and Bedford. Our Medfield site will run 9am-12pm and our Bedford site will run 9am-2pm. Players at our Bedford site will have a lunch break and a snack break, players at our Medfield site will have a snack break and leave before lunch.
Nightly Training Series
Our nightly training series runs for 8 weeks, meeting on a set day for a 2 hours at night each week. The nightly training series is a fun action packed 2 hour training that will include game play and skill training. It is designed to keep players playing soccer at least once a week thru the summer. The training series will cover key skills that players will improve at during the sessions, but will also teach the players exercises they can practice on their own. We would like players to be available to make at least 5 of the 8 nightly training sessions, due to summer vacation travel we understand 100% attendance is unlikely. If a player misses a session they are able to make up the training at other locations.

Professional Player Availability
Our aim is to have a professional player appear at each clinic at least once. The following players have appeared recently at our programs: Shalrie Joseph, Avery John, Scott Caldwell, and Maddie Evans. Due to potential professional game conflicts, some clinics may have no professional player appearances.
We have a top notch coaching staff of elite local coaches in addition to our professional player component. Many of our coaches currently work at the college and high school level.
In the case of rain, soccer will continue at the discretion of the head coach. If there is heavy rain, and/or inclement weather (hail, thunder/lightning, extreme heat, high winds) play will be stopped and all players/coaches will seek cover. Some sites have onsite indoor facilities; other sites will have indoor facilities in the surrounding area. If indoor space is available, it will be utilized. If there is no indoor facility, we will make every possible effort to make up lost time (either by starting earlier or ending later on a subsequent day, adding additional days, or allowing missed days to be made up at a program later in the summer).
Goalkeepers are welcome to come to our programs – however there will not be a separate goalkeeper program. We believe that having basic soccer skills is essential even for goalkeepers. When matches are played goalkeepers may be used in the nets depending on the circumstances.
For team’s registering six or more players, all players will receive a $25 discount. Please contact us with questions or for further details.

Due to staffing and facility costs there is a no refund policy, with the exception of a medical problem. If you need to cancel, an account credit will be issued that can be applied towards any future program.
