Vogelsinger Academy is a true legacy program that really impacts players in a positive and lasting way.

The Vogelsinger Soccer Academy carries a legacy of excellence in soccer education and philosophy. Founded by Master Coach Hubert Vogelsinger in 1965, these camps offer youth players dynamic teaching by demonstration and participation, with the ultimate goal of creating for each player a method to self-teach. Children leave camp with an internal motivation to reach their goals.

Summer 2017 offers Vogelsinger Soccer Academy in four locations:

  • UC Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, California
  • Carthage College, Kenosha, Wisconsin
  • The Lawrenceville School, Lawrenceville, New Jersey
  • The Brooks School, North Andover, Massachusetts

Players may attend for one, two, or three week sessions. There are week long day camps for ages 7-14 at the Brooks School. All other locations require a minimum age of 9 and welcome anyone up to the age of 18 to attend. The All-Star sessions provide one week of individual skills and techniques training. Mini-Academies run for two weeks and incorporate tactical skills and techniques into training in addition to individual skills enhancement. The three week Academy is spent progressing from individual skills training to technique, positional progression, and tactical concepts.

The international, highly-skilled Vogelsinger coaching staff is unmatched. Many coaches have experience playing and coaching professionally in locations all over world, bringing a well-rounded and diverse atmosphere to the camp. All sessions are extremely intensive and are built to bring out the best in serious soccer players. Each day begins with Hubert Vogelsinger-created Soccerobics, designed to help players develop a natural rhythm and exceptional footwork. Throughout the day, campers practice in groups determined by age and skill level. Each evening they are challenged to use their newly learned skills small-sided and full-sided games.

At each location, overnight campers experience a real sleep-away camp experience. Housed on-campus, children have the unique opportunity to experience life as an on campus student, making new friendship and lasting memories. “Vogelsinger Academy is a true legacy program that really impacts players in a positive and lasting way,” states Jan O’Connor, Executive Vice President at US Sports Camps. “It’s inspiring to see parents who attended these camps as children, now sending their own children to take part in the Vogelsinger experience. It really speaks to the quality of this program.”
