Our Seahawk Academy Camp is designed for the player that wants to work hard, improve, and have fun! A variety of highly experienced and qualified collegiate, high school, and youth club coaches are on staff to ensure that each player is challenged to become a better player.  Our very own UNCW Seahawks soccer players are also on staff to be mentors, demonstrate techniques, become friends with, and to teach all participants.

Rising 8th graders and younger are grouped on a combination of age and skill level. Rising 9th-12th graders are typically grouped by graduation year for recruiting purposes. However, high school aged players may float between age groups at the discretion of the UNCW coaching staff.

Age and skill appropriate curriculums ensure that the needs of each specific group are met. All curriculums are designed by UNCW head coach, Chris Neal, who has years of experience creating coaching curriculums for both US Soccer and the United Soccer Coaches’ coaching schools.

Our rising 9th-12th graders will also benefit from field and classroom sessions that will provide priceless insight into what it takes to be successful at the collegiate level. An example of these sessions are:

    Danger Zone “Instincts” Training

    Advanced responsibilities/functions of each position

    The Art of Scoring Goals – classroom

    “Day in the Life of a College Athlete” - classroom

High school aged players are also being evaluated, by the numerous collegiate coaches in attendance.


We incorporate specialized goalkeeper training into each of our residential camps. GK’s will train in small groups in the morning sessions and will be integrated into team games for all sessions. Our GK staff follows each player throughout their day and provides feedback at appropriate intervals.


Teams will benefit greatly from attending our Seahawk Academy camp. Recreation, Challenge and Classic teams will be coached by our staff members, and our coaches will tailor the curriculum to meet your needs. If 8 or more players attend from the same youth team, we will apply a $20 team discount for each participant. Please contact Chris Neal at nealc@uncw.edu or 910-962-3932 prior to registering your team members.
