ABYSA FUNdamentals Soccer Camp is a great way for your child to spend a week having
fun while playing the world's most popular sport!  Each day, campers work on their skills, play games, and swim at the pool--while enjoying the other campers and the staff.  We offer a games-centered teaching approach that enriches players' passion for soccer while teaching proper soccer techniques for future soccer success.  Throughout the week the will work on various techniques or skills such as dribbling, passing, receiving, shielding, and shooting. Players will also be exposed to individual and small group tactics of the game. Become a more complete player by spending a week or several weeks with us this summer! We are excited for our 16th summer. We have had many players who have attended camp who have gone on to playing for their HS teams or in college. 

  • Half-day camps for 4-6-year-olds (9 AM - 12 PM / Half-day campers will not go to the pool) $135/week
  • Full-day camps for ages 7-14. (9 AM - 4 PM) $235/week
  • Early Bird Drop Off available at 7:30 AM for an additional fee $25/week
  • Lunch can be provided for an additional fee of $30 /week
  • Asheville Camps located at the John B. Lewis Soccer Complex at Azalea Park in East Asheville.

All campers are placed in proper age groups to ensure developmentally appropriate teaching and competition. This is an ideal camp for Recreation, Challenge, and younger Classic players (U11-U14).  We work hard to challenge the higher level campers in the same way we do the less experienced ones. Players will have a ball at their feet almost the whole week and the atmosphere is perfect for a child who loves the game and can't get enough or for someone who just wants to learn more skills.
