Aldrich Academy is an advanced soccer camp being offered by Crossroads Soccer that works to further develop players’ technical skills, positional understanding, and game tactical awareness. Led by former division 1 soccer player Lauren Aldrich, sessions will reflect a top-level collegiate training – there are no empty reps, everything a player does is with a purpose and once a skill is mastered it is practiced at game-speed.  This camp is being offered by Crossroads Soccer.

Each day will have three sessions, a technical session, positional session and game-play.

Session 1: Technical Training

  • First-touch, passing, dribbling, trapping, striking the ball and body positioning.

Main Goal: To improve players’ ability to maintain possession of the ball.

Session 2: Positional Training

Positions: forwards, midfielders, defenders and goalkeepers

Group 1 Forwards

    • Dynamic runs, Crossing (end line vs. early cross) and different types of finishing.

Group 2 Midfielders

    • Supporting runs (checking into space), checking shoulders, producing a quality final ball and combination play.

Group 3 Defenders

    • Fundamentals of defending (1v1, 2v1), back-line shape, building out of the back, and taking balls out of the air.

Group 4 Goalkeepers

    • Catching, diving, distribution of the ball and reaction saves.

Session 3: Game-Play

    • Players will implement what they learned in earlier sessions in a competitive game-setting.

Players can expect the atmosphere at Aldrich Academy to be energetic, competitive, and fun. Coach Lauren and the rest of the carefully hand-picked coaching staff will be active participants in sessions by demonstrating skills, teaching concepts and providing individual feedback. If you’re a player who wants to improve your soccer skills, get the most out of training and take your game to the next level, Aldrich Advanced Academy is for you.
