The camp series will give players the opportunity to improve their skills while learning from the best international coaching talent. The International Soccer Development Series is unique both regionally and nationally in is diversity of offerings, collaborative curriculum and expansive professional soccer knowledge base.
“We have been running camps with some of these international coaches for the past few years with great success, but only one or two weeks a year. This summer we really wanted to make a conscious effort to expand our offerings to a wider base of clients in a heavily satured soccer market, but we knew we had to partner with a club or facility in order to make that happen,” said Andy Vera, President of Soccer Performance International. “And for us the Maryland SoccerPlex was the perfect fit; from the quality of the fields, to the staff and overall professional nature of the facilty.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Soccer Perfomance International,” said Maryland SoccerPlex Executive Director Trish Heffelfinger. “The opportunity to offer our young local players the chance to learn from some of the finest international coaches was something we simply could not pass up.”
