RISE camps are held during seasonal downtimes, providing an opportunity for athletes to advance their development through supplemental training that's consistent with the RISE player development philosophy and curriculum. RISE camps focus on predetermined topics that allow our Player Development Coaches to cater to the skills and individual needs of your player by grouping participants according to their age, skill level and interest. Our camp series is designed for Recreational, Youth Academy, Competitive and Elite Program players. All camps will all have functional (goalkeeper and position specific) training components.
RISE camps are open to Recreational, Youth Academy, Competitive & Elite Program players, as well as players who are not registered with RISE.

Our player centric camps focus solely on accelerating individual player development. Each camp will have a predetermined and specific technical focus, while the series of camps assures that each critical technical component isn’t overlooked or crammed into a session. This camp format allows our Player Development Coaches to work extensively with your player towards mastering their technical skills. Our PDC’s will use a multitude of activities and games to help build your player’s confidence by encouraging them to experiment without the fear of failure. All camps will be led by the RISE Player Development Staff which consists of some of the top and highest licensed youth coaches in the country and all of the content and activities will be age appropriate.

There isn’t a better feeling than scoring a goal! During Spring Break we are going to work on putting the ball in the back of the net. You’ll be scoring from tap-ins, set pieces, crosses, shots from distance, and everything in between. Our PDC’s will assist your player with their technique and prepare cool activities that challenge players with their striking speed and ball placement. Goal celebrations encouraged! Goalkeepers better have something to say about this!

Welcome back to soccer with a fun Olympic-themed soccer camp! Wrap up summer break and have fun with our new theme days, special activities, and, of course, essential soccer skills. For older or more experienced players, this camp will help prepare them for the upcoming season with tons of dribbling, passing, and shooting games. For our youngest players (U4-U6), camp is an introduction to soccer as a team sport and developing basic skills where players will have fun with their soccer ball and their friends!

In game situations, players will have to receive and deliver balls to and from their teammates in all sorts of ways. We want your player to develop an excellent first touch and to have an arsenal of ball delivery ranges and speeds. The topic of this camp may seem simplistic, but the fact of the matter is that the best players use precision rather than speed to dominate. Your player will have a smile on their face as they are put to the test in an obstacle course that tests their velocity, accuracy and decision making ability.
(U4-U6) 5:30pm - 6:30pm (Wed-Fri) // 10:00am - 11:00 am (Sat)
(U7-U14) 5:30pm - 7:30pm (Wed-Fri) // 10:00am - 12:00 pm (Sat)

Can you beat the defender in front of you? Can you shut down a striker? Can you beat a goalkeeper on a breakaway? At the Winter Break Camp we are going to find out. 1 versus 1 situations are often the defining moments of the game. Through repetition, players can build confidence in their ability to positively impact a game. It’s critical that younger players can develop the ability to attack and defend in these types of situations. You’ll win some and you’ll lose some, but you will improve and shift the odds in your favor. Our Player Development Coaches will teach players some effective moves and your player will have plenty of chances to refine and show off your favorites. We want our players to be brimming with confidence in their ability to create and be disruptive on the field.
