The Camp is now FULL

We will still be training this weekend!   We will probably be some of the only players actually training this weekend in the State of Minnesota, as Coerver Coaching Minnesota has secured the use of indoor facilities at the NSC.  Firstly, I want to acknowledge that this has been an incredibly unpredictable weather cycle in April 2013 - one that no one would have foreseen.  Secondly, we did not want to cancel the camp, which was so fantastic last year, and disappoint more than 100 players.   However - it does mean some changes in plans and some flexibility by families and coaches.  Thirdly, we want to come up with a schedule that was educational, fun, and fair to the players, and one in which we did not get too crowded or unsafe.  Based on this, and the NSC informing us today of the field unavailability, we wanted to let you know as soon as possible what the new schedule will be.  We have been able to secure the Expo Indoor Field for Saturday and the Expo Field and the Main Sports Hall for Sunday.

Coerver-Minnesota United Pro Camp Strikers:

               Saturday 20th April:        Check in at National Sports Center Expo Indoor Field at 10:30am

                                                            Striker Training from 11:00am to 1:00pm

                                                            1:00pm Lunch  - bring own lunch

                                                            1:30 board bus for Metrodome to study and watch the Minnesota United FC vs. Edmonton FC game. Great opportunity to watch Pro Players close up!

                                                                           Strikers have special section at the game and will be studying strikers from both teams - runs, positioning, skill set, movement etc…

                                                            2:30pm kick off - 4:30pm board bus for travel back to NSC  - see below for more details.  Expected arrival at NSC 5:00-5:15pm

                                                            NO COST TO PLAYERS FOR TICKET OR BUS.


               Sunday 21st April:           8:00-10:30am Striker Training at either Expo or Sports Hall - players will be notified on Saturday.

                                                            10:30-11:30am - Break

                                                            11:30am-2:00pm  - Striker Training at either Expo or Sports Hall.

Based on the extenuating circumstances and the Indoor Availability, which was being snapped up by almost every sports organization, this was the best solution.  Not perfect - but still pretty good.  

Special Notes:

The Expo Center and the Sports Hall will accommodate cleats, but the Expo Center has no "fill" in it so soccer flats may be a better choice there.

Goalkeepers need to bring long pants (either Goalie pants or sweats) and a long sleeved Goalie shirt (or sweat shirt) to avoid unnecessary turf burn. 

Parents and Family members who want to go to the Minnesota United FC Game on Saturday, can get reduced ticket prices:  $10 for adults and $5 for youth (instead of $14 and $8) but you must e-mail in these ticket orders to Latcho by THURSDAY 18th APRIL.  Payment can be made on Saturday when the player checks in.  At this point we cannot provide transportation for parents and family members.

Striker Camp Features

Every player can score hundreds of goals. The ability to finish regardless of position is soccer’s most sought after skill at every level. The Pre-Season NSC Goalie/Striker Camp is focused on finishing: Power and placement shooting, headers, volleys, toe pokes, penalty kicks, corner kicks, bicycle kicks, and more!

Emphasis is on technique as applied to a functional training environment that recreates the pressure of the game. Composure on the ball in tight situations is the goal.

Each session will cover but is not limited to:

Placement shooting

1v1 power moves and feints

Chipping and lobbing

Long range power shooting

Heading for goal

Attacking numbers up and down

World Cup tournament

Dribbling for speed

Breakaway technique and tactics

Shootout competition
