From entry level to intermediate, Atlanta United's Camps and Clinics focus on youth players who enjoy the game and are looking for opportunities to play and develop in a fun, positive environment.
Camps and Clinics are focused on youth players looking to develop in a fun and exciting environment. Players have the opportunity to build a foundation in the game and hone individual technical skills through an engaging progressive curriculum delivered by professionally licensed and qualified staff.
Camps and Clinics are open to all players ages 7-14. The programs are a fun addition to any soccer children may already be playing and offer an opportunity to develop in key areas of the game.
Our Camps and Clinics are located in various locations around the greater Atlanta region. While some locations may share fields with local soccer clubs, they are not club specific and are open to registration regardless of club affiliation.
Camps and Clinics are focused on grassroots to intermediate players developing entry level skills in a fun environment. RDS programs are tryout based and geared toward more advanced players looking to train in a more competitive program. The age range for Camps and Clinics is 7-14, while the RDS age range is 8-14.
Yes, but only if you plan to participate at multiple locations.
For clinics, registration typically opens up a month before the program starts. For summer camps, registration typically opens up at the beginning of the year.
Confirmation e-mails will be sent the day before the program start date to ensure we reach out to all those that have signed up. This e-mail will contain all necessary information for the program.
All players should bring water and shin guards. A camp or clinic shirt will be provided at the first session. Players do not need to bring a soccer ball as coaches will provide these each session.
Unfortunately, we do not offer session make ups. If you anticipate a lot of conflicts within the current season, we ask that you consider signing up next time around instead.
While we still train in the rain, we keep an eye on the forecast for any unforeseen severe weather. If a session is cancelled, we will reach out via e-mail as far in advance as possible.
In the event that sessions cannot be completed in person, they will be delivered virtually via Zoom. Virtual sessions will consist of interactive classroom activities, at-home ball mastery classes, as well as tactical video analysis components.
Given the similarity between virtual and in-person training sessions, along with the unique opportunity your child will have to learn directly from Atlanta United’s professional youth coaches, we will not be offering refunds for virtual training sessions. While the delivery method will be different, the same professionally licensed coaches will adapt online sessions to deliver the ATL UTD Training Programs methodology. Players will progress through tactical sessions, interactive activities and ball mastery sessions consistent with the in-person programs.
