Patterned after Geneva′s own successful men′s & women′s programs, the Geneva Soccer Academy will provide a quality soccer learning experience in an intentionally positive and fun environment. The camp places considerable emphasis on teaching fundamental playing skills- sportsmanship, proper motivational techniques and attitudes, and the Geneva style of quick ball movement and exciting individual play at as high a level as possible.
Our goal is to give campers of all ability levels a very positive overall experience, improving their skills and team play in a fun and challenging atmosphere.
