Best High-performance Summer Football Camps | Ertheo Sports Programs

What’s the difference between a high-performance camp and a standard camp?

Participant skill level

One of the greatest differences bteween high-performance summer football camps and standard camps is the students’ skills on the pitch. In high-performance summer football camps, all participates are federated players who have extensive knowledge of the football and play at an intermediate to advanced level.

Intensity

High-performance summer football camps are more physically demanding than standard camps. At standard camps, students typically train for two to three hours a day and spend the rest of their day enjoying recreational activities or excursions. At high-performance camps, students spend almost all day training. They typically train for five to six hours a day.

Training level

Participants in these programs already have extensive knowledge of the game of football. They already know how to move around the field and position themselves and easily understand the instructions of the coach. Consequently, training can be much faster and more efficient. Coaches can teach new concepts and techniques without having to worry about first teaching the basics.
