TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Want to take your soccer game to the next level? How would you like to learn from the nation's elite college coaching staff? Then the Mark Krikorian Soccer Academy at Florida State University is where you need to be.
Boys and girls, ages 5-18, can take advantage of a two-day winter academy January 3 & 4 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm in Tallahassee at the Seminole Soccer Complex. Campers will be given an unforgettable soccer experience as they learn from a coaching staff with years of professional, international and college experience as well as from the top collegiate players at Florida State.
The camp will be under the direction of the 2002 WUSA Coach of the Year, 2006 Soccer America Coach of the Year and two-time ACC Coach of the Year (2005 & 2009) Mark Krikorian. In five seasons at the helm of the Florida State women's soccer program, Krikorian has guided the Seminoles to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament each year including three consecutive College Cup appearances (2005, 2006, 2007). Joining Krikorian at this year's camp will be associate head coach Eric Bell (4th Season at FSU), assistant coach Mike Bristol (1st season at FSU) and graduate assistant/team manager Jean Rettig (2nd season at FSU).
The primary focus of this camp will be on the technical application of the sport with dedicated training in specific areas including passing, shooting techniques, receiving, dribbling and team tactics.
The winter academy is an accelerated two-day program geared toward technical growth and refinement. Players will be divided into age and skill appropriate groups, allowing for immediate immersion into challenging and interactive drills. The winter academy will be held Sunday- Monday, January 3-4, 2010 as campers can attend for $80 per player.
It is Florida State's goal that every player leaves camp with a feeling of accomplishment, a better understanding of the game and an intensified passion for soccer.
