Soccer Summer Camp in Owings Mills, Maryland
Owings Mills is an unincorporated community in Baltimore County, Maryland. Home to the northern terminus of the Baltimore Metro Subway, it is also where the Baltimore Ravens’ headquarters facility. The Irvine Nature Center located in the Caves Valley Historic District is also a fun place for families to explore.
There is also something else families of Owings Mills will love about living here. Soccer camp! Coerver® United offers a wonderful soccer camp with a global coaching program inspired by the teachings of Wiel Coerver and created by Alfred Galustian and Charlie Cooke for over three decades. We have the best Coerver United soccer coaches to help your children develop into soccer stars. We also have a player to coach ratio of approximately 6:1 to ensure we deliver amazing results.
That’s why our coaches train a lot as new curriculum is created, and new games and exercises are introduced by Coerver United coaches across the globe. The camps focus on teaching the individual skills which will help each player be more successful on the field. Of course, proper fundamental skills are taught before moving on to advanced skills.
Endorsed and recommended by several top federations, associations, club teams and corporations including the French Football Federation, Chinese Football Association, Newcastle United FC and global sponsor Adidas, our goal is to do as follows:
- Develop skilled, confident and creative players
- Make the game fun to practice and play
- Teach good sportsmanship and respect for all
- Value winning but not more than character and performance
- Provide a safe & educational experience that meets best practice criteria
Coerver United also does not let the winter months interfere with training which is why we have indoor soccer available for some of our programs. Some of these seasonal programs include:
First Skills – Developed for ages 2-5, these classes are 30 minutes long and have a player to coach ratio of approximately 8-1. Fun is the central theme during all sessions as skills are introduced and practiced. These young players get to experience the game in a way that fosters physical and social development and improves coordination, confidence and skill.
Performance Academy – For ages 12-14, this program is specifically for those players who are looking to improve their individual skills. Great for all levels of players, the focus is placed on individual skill development and our 4 core move sets with the goal of developing confidence on the ball.
As summer camps go, two types of week-long camps we host are Advanced and Ball Mastery.
Advanced level summer camp is available to players 10 years or older. Players are taught more complicated moves and they are placed into competitive environments with an emphasis on 1v1 and 2v2 play in the morning. Small group tactics are also taught and small-sided games are played featuring fast break attack and counter attacks.
Ball Mastery camps are for those between 6 and 11 years of age. Emphasis is on individual skill development and basic moves with the goal of developing confidence on the ball. Beginning “move sets” are taught and games are played to practice the moves in a method that starts with no pressure and slowly adds the pressure of time and/or space restrictions. Then passive defensive pressure is added and by the end of the first morning, players are performing moves under full defensive pressure to goal. Results are recorded each day and a finals competition is held on the last day of camp. Group champions are recognized at our award ceremony on Friday afternoon.
