EPL, Bundesliga, La Liga and Serie A have all culminated in 6 weeks of truly exciting soccer action here at JPSA.
It is here where those who participated were empowered to be creative, make decisions and play the game with the freedom to attempt without consequence! An environment designed to allow players to make mistakes, learn and correct in later moments throughout the six weeks of play.
This is a program characteristic of the JPSA trademark and it defines the quality of our instructional framework starting with summer camp.
Our summer camps are designed so skills both new and learnt are executed and reinforced in AM training 5 days per week. The intensity of training will be feverish in anticipation of the world cup style afternoon matches where every child who loves the game is given the license to express themselves in a competitive team setting.
