2020 Gastonia Summer Academy

The First Touch Soccer Summer Academy is a unique opportunity for players to train over the course of the summer in a comprehensive and physically demanding regiment. We have found that players attend week-long camps and then have no reinforcement of the skills that they have been working on during camp. We have developed a program that allows the player to train and continue to develop his or her skills on a consistent basis.

Players have to commit to a minimum of (4) four weeks of training. You choose the weeks that fit in your child's summer schedule. Weeks do not have to be consecutive. Players must attend three training sessions per week. Sessions are in (3) hour blocks. We have training centers in Charlotte, Gastonia, Huntersville, and Shelby. A player will have a minimum of (9) contact hours per week along with additional work that must be done between sessions. We understand that there are family trips and other camps planned for players that will take some of their time away. Players can participate in more than four weeks. Players can attend sessions at any of our training centers at any time. Our 2019 Summer Academy saw players from Huntersville and Shelby going to Charlotte and vice versa. Players are encouraged to attend as many sessions as they would like at no extra charge.
