Transcript of Method - US Sports Camps

It is a painstaking STEP-BY-STEP method. We must create for
you a crystal-clear picture of what we are trying to teach through
demonstration and explanation. You must understand clearly and
be able to picture every little detail in your MIND’S EYE. Moreover,
you then have to see yourself performing it successfully, and
physically feel it and emotionally experience it.
The ultimate goal of self-teaching is INTERNALIZING
MOTIVATION and knowing where you are, where you want to be,
and how to get there step-by-step. We say you “FAIL YOUR WAY
TO SUCCESS” because with this method, mistakes become your
You will become a BETTER PLAYER. You will become a
BETTER PERSON, as you will learn how to work toward the
goals that you set for yourself.
Our goal is to create an environment—a GAME-LIKE
ATMOSPHERE—through dynamic teaching and
coaching by explanation, demonstration and
participation to assist each player in creating a
Our objective is to help you reach your highest potential. We start you on the right path, set your dream in motion, fire up your imagination, and leave you empowered to reach those goals.
Our professional staff consists of master teachers whose demonstrations include demanding instruction, step- by-step clarification, and playful joking to bring out the most sensitive technical points for you to grasp and imitate.

SOCCEROBICS We encourage all campers to attend our early morning Soccerobics session which is part of our conditioning and fitness program to prepare you for the day ahead. (6:45 a.m. daily) Created by Master Coach Hubert Vogelsinger, Soccerobics is a system of carefully designed exercises with the ball, incorporating soccer skills with aerobic and physical conditioning. With Soccerobics, you will develop your natural rhythm through muscle memory and visualization while learning the essentials of proper foot work as well.
Incentive Packages
1. 2012 marks our 47th year of setting the standard for excel- lence in soccer education.
2. An unmatched diversity of programs is offered in both the Academy and All-Star sessions.
3. The 3-week Academy (21 days) is the most unique and advanced soccer education for the serious player.

5. The Vogelsinger All-Star Soccer Schools are the only one-week schools that offer six action-packed days with a variety of programs.
6. Vogelsinger’s time-tested unique method emphasizes TEACHING with the ultimate goal of self-teaching.
7. Our international, professional coaching staff is selected for their passion for the game and their abil- ity to teach. The ratio of coaches to players in the Academy is 1:8 and in the All-Star programs 1:10. These internationals live among the students and serve as live role models.
8. Our reputation attracts players to our programs who are more serious and have a higher standard of play. That, in itself, makes a more challenging program.

This is a program you cannot afford to miss. Coach Vogelsinger has distinguished himself as THE soccer educator. His passionate unwavering philosophy over the years is that a good technical foundation is the best tactical preparation. We offer a modern teaching method, uniquely innovative and highly motivational. It is the main reason for the program’s incomparable success.
Soccer Physique: We address your soccer physique through Soccerobics and our inventive warm-up sessions. Coach Vogelsinger’s unique method does not just focus on teaching individual skills but on your whole body as it relates to the ball—your “body language.” Such a comprehensive approach assures you a solid technical foundation and understanding, and it leads naturally into the advanced skills, techniques, and tactics.
Technical Skills: The sessions are dynamic, taught in realistic technical skill sequences in ball control, passing, dribbling
and striking with their correct tactical applications. Young professionals provide realistic game-like demonstrations. With uncanny perception and ability, Coach Vogelsinger has broken down the most sophisticated technical skills with clear step-by-step explanations. With on-going dialogue, the staff keeps you focused with reminders such as “happy feet,” “magic hop,” and “get out of your comfort zone.”
Evening games: In our evening games you can test what you have learned that day. Games, mainly 4v4 or 5v5, as well as 11v11, with two goals and goalkeepers, give you the opportunity to maximize touches on the ball and your chances to finish on a real goal.
Beginners to Advanced. Coed. Ages 9 and up.
Players are grouped first by age and then by ability.
Positional Play What makes this program so special and exciting is that you are taught by coaches who have played your position at a very high level and are able to provide you with depth and insight into the technical, tactical, and intellectual aspects of each position. Advanced Functional Skill Sequences: We instruct you to better understand and perform your position of choice with special attention paid in highlighting the defensive and attacking skills needed in all positions. Evening games: Evening games of 4v4, 5v5, as well as 11v11, with two goals and goalkeepers, are designed to give you as many touches on the ball as possible and the chance to practice what you have learned during the day. Intermediate to Advanced. Coed. Ages 10 and up. Players are grouped by position, then age, and then re-evaluated by ability.
4 5 Team Play/ Pre-Season Preparation This is the most popular program for high school players. It is an ideal preparation for your school’s upcoming rigorous pre- season training and try-outs. Team Training: The main empha- sis is on team training and physical preparation. If you come as a team with an established style and system of play, we evaluate it and offer recommendations for improvement. Offensive Team Play: Special emphasis is placed on improving offensive team play and on your individual and team finishing skills. All players become aware of a variety of systems and tactics. We also sharpen your skills and tactics through highly competitive functional training activities. Evening games: Daily full-field scrimmages finish the day in competitive tournament format. Advanced. Coed. Ages 14 and up. Players enroll as a team or as individuals who are assigned to a team of comparable ability or age.

The Junior Development School The Junior Development School is especially designed

young players learn the correct individual, technical
skills right from the start. Mastering each basic soccer
skill maximizes performance
levels and enhances enjoyment of the game. We provide a fun-filled soccer environment, never
losing sight of our objective
to teach individual, technical
skills. This specialized pro- gram achieves these goals
with encouragement and enthusiasm aimed at pro- moting self-confidence in each player. The Junior Academy prepares players

THREE WEEk ACADEmY Academy programs can be found in California and Massachusetts. The program instruction changes each week.
WEEk OnE: Individual Skills, Techniques & Tactics
WEEk TWO: Positional Play
WEEk THREE: Team Play
A TWO WEEk mInI-ACADEmY In California and Massachusetts it is any two-week combination of the three week program. In Wisconsin and New Jersey, the Mini-Academy offers Individual Skills, Techniques and Tactics. A condensation of Positional Play and Team Play.
length of the Programs: In the Academies we can actually observe your physical behavior changing. Your coordination, harmony, and touch with the ball can dramatically improve. As your newly developed mental skills kick in, we can see and you can feel the effect in your playing habits. Such dramatic changes occur faster and more readily under the close scrutiny of top professional coaches in a very special environment for an extended period of time.
“Why Academy?” I s T h e O f t e n A s k e d Q u e s t i o n
Eligibility: There is a 12 and up age requirement and athletes are generally of the highest caliber. However, the most essential criteria is not age or experience, but attitude. We cannot tell you whether you are ready. The answer lies within you. The choice to attend the Academy should be yours and not only the decision of your parents or coach.
Weekends: Academy students participate in the Saturday morning training session. Physical recovery and mental rejuvenation are the objectives of Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning activities. There is a required schedule of non-physical activities on both Saturday and Sunday. The activities include practicing mental and physical relaxation methods, extensive stretching sessions and visualization techniques. There is, of course, some scheduled free time in between activities, to go shopping or to swim in the pool, where available.
We have planned Saturday activities at the Lawrenceville School, Carthage College and The Brooks School. Examples of activities are trips to see MLS professional soccer games, movies and aquarium trip in Boston, all trips are fully supervised.
For other non-specific activity days, students leaving cam- pus are not supervised by school staff. School staff is pres- ent on campus in a supervisory role during the weekend and during required meeting times. Only students with a signed permission slip are allowed to leave campus, in pairs, after having signed out and given a specific time of return.
You can test your abilities against PLAYERS who come from ALL OVER
THE WORLD who have EQUAL or BETTER soccer abilities. Your mental
and physical resolve, passion and commitment are tested in a unique
environment so you can almost taste the passion and feel the
commitment of all players. This is what makes it such a powerful
experience. The experience of having mastered difficult challenges has
a magical effect on your self-confidence, self-esteem, and attitude.
If you are the player who has decided that soccer is
your favorite sport, the fun is in the challenge this
school program provides. You want a program that
is serious, well-organized, and run by well-known
experts. You want to insure technical and tactical im-
provement as well as an overall understanding of the way the game is
played. You just want lots of soccer instruction and challenging competition.
An intensive one-week program is probably just the thing for you.

“The Vogelsinger program is one of the finest I have
experienced. The location, facility and grounds are
superior. This camp prepares your child for high
school soccer. The tactical skills really showed,
the conditioning is fabulous and it insures self-
confidence. We were extremely pleased.”
No matter whether you are a field player or goalkeeper, you partake in a rigorous and exciting daily soccer schedule that keeps you busy from dusk until dawn. After waking up, you begin the day with an hour-long session of Soccerobics. This helps prepare your body and mind for the long day of training ahead. The evening program marks the conclusion of each day. You listen to a lecture, analyze video, or partake in a soccer discussion before heading off to bed. The amount of satisfaction and confidence you feel after each day is one of the most rewarding aspects of your decision to immerse yourself in a full day of soccer training.
