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 2019: We work to provide new and innovative training styles into our summer camp every year to ensure our campers are receiving the best coaching and soccer experience. This year we will be implementing the Celtic Football Club's methodology into our camp training. Through the Celtic Way, campers will improve their technique, performance and engagement through exposure to the Celtic Way, which focuses on technical development, specifically the "Celtic Turns", ball mastery, awareness, and control.
