CGSA Summer 2006 Soccer Programs

Elite Camp

Camp Director Gary Wright is holding the second annual Elite Camp whose coaching staff would be the envy of all the top college camps in the country (please see staff profiles).  The Elite Camp will run July 10 through July 14 (see below for details) with an itenary designed to improve skills and get the best out of each player. 


The first Elite Camp in Savannah, July 11th -15th was a huge success according to camp director,Gary Wright.There were over 90 high level players that attended the week long camp,some coming from as far as Singapore!! The camp coaching staff was of the highest level possible and included John Rootes and Andy Williamson, Head college coaches of the SCAD mens and womans program respectivle.  Both their assistants, Rob Weisel and Rebecca Witters and also Darren Bloodworth, a Uefa 'A' license coach who works for Chelsea F.C.  Camp Director Gary Wright said "when players and coaches wish the camp could continue at the end of the week,you know something has gone right!" The camp will run for the second year the week of July 10th through 14th, 2006.



Recreation Camps

We will be holding recreation camps throughout the summer to cover all ages.  These camps are designed around improving the soccer skills for our recreational players. 


Message From The Director

"The goal for our camps is for all ages and levels of players to come and enjoy themselves, while working hard on their soccer skills.   If our participants take something away from the camp, whether it be a new-found confidence or a new skill to beat an opponent, then the camp has been a success!

This is why the Professional Coaching Staff is chosen carefully as to enable different coaching methods and skills to be taught along with different personalities, for the development and enjoyment of the player."

We know our players and coaches.

A coach or Parent can approach our staff on any specific needs regarding player development, and because we know the player well, we can often get the best from the player (players like to feel comfortable in a fun learning environment)

CGSA Camp Programs & Clinics

We teach our players skills for life, such as character, respect of the game, the officials and opponents. We work on seeking excellence through sportsmanship. Skills, character and development can be monitored with an on-going process long after the camp program has finished and throughout the seasons ahead.  In addition to our summer camp program, CGSA now provides on-going individual and group clinics throughout the year.  For more details about these clinics, contact Gary Wright at 691-2472.
