    This camp will focus on small-sided games featuring multiple touches on the ball. This is the quickest way to develop ball skills, tactical awareness, and team play. We will finish the camp with a skills challenge and tournament to which parents are encouraged to attend. This camp is especially recommended for players who plan on attending BBA. Burr and Burton Academy has a proud soccer tradition that includes 15 state championships for both its girls and boys programs. This camp will not only introduce you to the soccer program, but also to your future classmates. We also welcome summer visitors to our camp.

    Burr and Burton soccer promotes fair play and having fun in a competitive setting.  Campers will also learn fun facts about soccer and the Laws of the Game. Over the course of the week, we will also learn soccer traditions from around the world. The summer of 2017 will give us the opportunity to closely follow World Cup Qualifying and MLS Soccer.

    Staff: Over his fifteen years of coaching the boy’s varsity, Coach Mull’s teams have been to the state finals 4 times and have won 3 state championships -- including an undefeated season in 2012 --  5 MVL championships, and 8 John James championships.

    Single left-click to select and drag a file on your desktop
    Single right-click a file to open an options menu
    Double left-click to open a file or application
    Undo an error with Command Z or Control Z
    Copy and Paste an image or line of text
    Name and save the file in a specific location
