A Player Development Camp for Competitive Athletes

Jill Ellis, former US Women’s National Team Coach, recently spoke at the United Soccer Coaches Convention about how she prepared the USWNT for the 2019 World Cup. She attributed their World Cup victory to committing to these three things on the road to France:

  • Every player had to be in peak physical condition
  • Every player had to be diverse and tactically flexible
  • They needed to play their three pre-world cup friendlies against the best teams in the world

At the Academy we agree that training against quality competition is one of the most effective ways to gain confidence, grow and improve. With that in mind, we created the Berkshire Invitational.
