Butler Youth Soccer Camp Philosophy

  • Develop ball mastery
  • Teach players how to dominate 1v1
  • Develop creative and confident players
  • Inspire players to succeed
  • Encourage FUN & ENJOYMENT

The training (Meulensteen Method Philosophy) is based on developing a player’s technical skill through ball mastery, 1v1 moves, and passing and receiving exercises. We also focus on improving a player’s decision making within small-sided group play. We want to develop confident, creative and skillful players.

The ultimate objective of the camp is to create a fun, safe, yet challenging environment that inspires all the players to want to become better soccer players and teammates.

During Day Camp 1 & 2, we will be hosting the Regional US Technical Championship Challenge (UTSC).

The Butler Youth Soccer Camps’ Coaching staff is made up of highly respected and qualified college coaches, club coaches, high school coaches as well as some of Butler’s current varsity players. The coaches are known for the quality of their teaching, enthusiasm & passion for the game. All activities are carefully supervised.

Elite Camper is a player who has had previous competitive youth club playing experience and who wishes to train in a more competitive environment; focusing on more specific technical and tactical topics.
Full Day Camper is a player who either has a recreationally background or a youth club background but wants to practice and compete in a less competitive environment. The full day campers will still be exposed to many of the same technical exercises as the elite camper. They will also participate in a lot of fun and challenging small games activities.
Campers can bring their own food to camp. There will be snacks to purchase at camp.
