TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – For young players looking to take their game to the next level, the Mark Krikorian Soccer Academy will provide an opportunity to train under a staff that has won three straight ACC Championships, made five consecutive appearances in the College Cup and earned numerous conference and national coach of the year honors. Registration is now available for two different dates.
The Summer Indoor Academy (June 6-9) is available for boys and girls aged 5-18 and is the only indoor soccer camp on a full sized field in Tallahassee. The entire camp will take place in the FSU Indoor Practice Facility. Groups are formed based on age and ability to ensure a great experience for every camper. The Academy offers a half-day option from 9am-12pm, while a full-day option from 9am-3pm is also available. One of the highlight experiences of this camp is the famed “World Cup”, where players dress and compete as a country against the world. Half Day Price: $225 per person; Full Day Price: $400 per person.
The Elite Residential Academy will be held on July 23-26 for boys and girls aged 11-18 and is designed for the serious soccer player. This intensive camp brings some of the best talent from all across the nation and even internationally to Tallahassee. The mission of this academy is simple: provide every player with an unforgettable soccer experience that takes them to a new playing level. To help accomplish this Mark Krikorian brings in a combination of elite college and club coaches with current and former collegiate players. The primary focus will be on technical application, as technique is the foundation of all success. Campers will be introduced to the tactical side of the game and be afforded a firsthand glimpse into the “beautiful game” that is Seminole Soccer. Price: $625 per person.
The Mike Bristol Goalkeeper Academy runs sessions at all Mark Krikorian Soccer Academies. Campers will get a chance to learn from FSU assistant coach Mike Bristol’s expertise; the same tutelage that helped develop six U.S. Youth National Team goalkeepers. An emphasis is placed on creating a challenging and complete training environment as keepers will train technical topics as a group and then incorporate that on the field to gain valuable tactical experience. This allows the goalkeeper coaches to give both technical and tactical one-on-one feedback to each keeper.
