THE BUCCANEER SOCCER ACADEMY
History of Buccaneer Soccer Academy:
The Buccaneer Soccer Academy was founded in 2006 with the start of East Tennessee State University’s Division I men’s program. Since its inception, the camp has doubled in size. Players come from all over the US to experience a camp that is driven by a director that has both vision and experience. Our mission is that campers leave the Buccaneer Soccer Academy with improved skills that are effectively applied in match situations.
At the Academy we strive to create the ideal learning environment. Coaches will challenge young players to improve and hold them to high standards. Attacking play and creativity will be encouraged in an environment that is positive and always fun. This combination of an experienced and enthusiastic staff, top notch facilities, and a well constructed curriculum will provide each camper an excellent experience.
During early morning technical training you will build and refine a solid foundation of skills through attention to detail and repetition. The morning session to follow is designed to translate newly acquired skills to match relevant games adding the elements of pressure and confined spaces.
The afternoon sessions will be focused on decision making and small group tactics. This will be taught through intense small-sided games where each player will be asked to make countless decisions. During the evening matches you will put the tactics and strategy focused on during the earlier sessions to the test - culminating in the Academy tournament on the final day.
The quality of a camp rises and falls on the quality of coaches and staff. We are dedicated to hiring top staff from around the US and abroad. Each coach is highly experienced with a great knowledge of the game and will properly teach our carefully designed curriculum.
The Buccaneer Soccer Academy has been extremely pleased with the progress we have made over the years. We believe that it is your camp experience that allows us this continued success. We are dedicated to providing a fun and challenging camp experience that encourages player development and tactical decision making.
We hope that you join us on the beautiful campus of East Tennessee State University.
