Soccer Summer Camp in Westminster, Maryland
Located in northern Maryland as a suburb of both Baltimore and Washington, D.C., Westminster is the seat of Carroll County. The city was also originally named Winchester after William Winchester who had purchased about 167 acres of land called White’s Level in 1754 before it would one day become known as the city of Winchester. The Maryland General Assembly eventually changed the name because Winchester was also the name of the county seat of Frederick County, Virginia. At this historical place one also can’t miss the Hashawha Tower windmill at the Hashawha Environmental Center.
Aside from name changes, plenty has changed in this small city to keep up with the times and what is popular these days. One prime example is Westminster’s premier soccer camp, Coerver® United. The fast-growing soccer camp has a global coaching program inspired by the teachings of Wiel Coerver and created by Alfred Galustian and Charlie Cooke. For over 30 years, the camp has been recruiting the best of the best when it comes to Coerver United soccer coaches. To run a successful program, we need to have a player to coach ratio of approximately 6:1. This way individual skills and small group play won’t be neglected.
Thankfully for our high-level coaches who train frequently as new curriculum is developed, and new games and exercises are introduced by Coerver United coaches across the world, soccer stars emerge from here. The camps emphasize teaching the individual skills which will procure wonderful results for each player. Proper fundamental skills are taught before moving on to advanced skills.

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.
