The Collegiate Soccer Academy (CSA) is designed for high school students who are interested in playing soccer at the collegiate level. CSA is uniquely designed to provide a fuller experience than the vast majority of summer soccer programs. At CSA, your child will be under the tutelage of two collegiate coaches and receive separate evaluations from both. Most importantly, CSA addresses the main reason why teenagers attend summer training camps - to improve their chances of admittance into collegiate soccer programs.
What separates CSA from the vast majority of camps are its two main objectives.
1. Educate and train academy participants in all aspects of a collegiate soccer program. Participants will take part in field and strength, speed development and agility based training sessions used by actual colleges and universities. Participants will also observe weight training sessions performed by collegiate athletes and have access to current weight training programs. Participants will attend several courses covering a variety of topics including SAT prep, NCAA compliance, and an introduction to educational support services for student athletes. Lastly, participants will take part in question and answer sessions with collegiate athletes and coaches.
2. Provide academy participants recruiting exposure to current college coaches from a variety of colleges and universities located predominantly on the east coast. Our staff was carefully selected to represent both state and private institutions and their programs range from Division I to Division III. In addition, our training sessions are open to visiting coaches so if your school of interest is not represented by our staff, you may contact the staff at your school of interest and invite them to attend. Participants will complete a player profile as part of the registration process and will be given numbered jerseys at time of check-in. These profiles and corresponding jersey numbers will be available to visiting coaches to facilitate the recruiting process.
At the completion of the program, participants leave with two honest evaluation completed by both the collegiate coach they have performed under. This evaluation will suggest an appropriate Division level for the prospective athlete and highlight their strengths and areas in need of improvement. In contrast to many other camps, CSA will also provide a Division I strength, speed & agility training program, a NCAA guidance related manual, SAT Prep materials, and a printout of answers from the Q & A sessions.
2012 participants represented 30 states and 10 countries making it one of the most diverse summer soccer camps in the country. CSA was founded in 2009 as a boys recruiting academy and after much success, a girls academy was added in 2010. The girls academy sold out in 2011 and the boys academy continues to be one of the most sought after camps in New England, selling out two session per summer in 2012, 2011 & 2010 and one summer session in 2009.
