This Camp is open to all players no matter club affiliation
This camp will incorporate position specific techniques designed to help both outfield players and goalkeepers. Players will become more comfortable in front of goal through a high number of goal-scoring repetitions in a wide variety of situations. Coaching staff will utilize this opportunity to provide goalkeepers with specific feedback as well as making field players more clinical in front of goal. Goalkeepers will work on balance, footwork and various types of catches, distribution, shot stopping, and positioning among other techniques. Field players will learn proper technique for striking the ball for power, finesse shots, bending the ball, chipping, balance, accuracy, and much more. At the end of each session we will combine the outfield players and goalkeepers to play small-sided games to goal.

This summer, we are pleased to announce the arrival of the ‘Rise Above’ competitive player camp. This is an elite level camp designed to challenge the highest level players in the state of Arkansas. Sessions will run for 1 hour 30 minutes and will take place over 8 separate dates in July. Our goal is to work with small groups delivering high intensity, quality technical training to all involved. We believe that training players at a similar level of ability will push each other to bring out the competitive edge. Players are much more likely to work harder, therefore getting more out of the session. During the 12 hours of practice, the staff will focus on refining a wide variety of technical aspects of the game in a highly focused and detailed environment. The ‘Rise Above’ camp will be available to a total of 64 players across 2 time-slots. 2011’s - 2008’s will work in the evenings (6.30-8pm) and 2007+ will work in the mornings (9-10.30am). Players will be split into groups of 8, and each group will work for 20 minutes with each Director. Registration is open to all players, but acceptance is NOT guaranteed. The staff will review interest and create groups accordingly. Sign up if you are interested in being selected to attend

The purpose of Arkansas Rising is about players playing at the appropriate level to enhance their individual player development instead of just forming teams. We believe that the overall level of training will improve, therefore creating a more challenging playing environment for each player, regardless of their placement within the club. Research shows that when a player is placed at the appropriate level, their opportunity for growth will 'rise'. This partnership expands our talent and the depth created will lead to more accurate player placement thus allowing more room for individual players to grow from within the organization.
