What is the Campioni Soccer Camp? Unlike the Tavani Soccer Camp, which are skill-based (shooting, dribbling, passing) the Campioni Soccer Camp is based on team tactics. It's an advanced four and a half hours led by nationally licensed coaches. Topics include playing out of the back, transition, counter-attack, finishing, combination play and introduction of different styles of play and formations.What's an Elite Session? The Elite Session is an addition to Tavani Soccer Camp and takes place right after all three Duluth location camps from 12 noon to 1:30 pm. It includes team video analysis. Elite Camps are for boys & girls, ages 9-15. What's the Coppa Tavani Tournament It's a yearly small-sided tournament (3v3 or 4v4) that is for all players 7-18. It's World Cup style (lot's of passion and fun) and players can make their own teams or join an existing one. It's $30 per player and parents are encouraged to attend and watch. What do campers receive? All campers receive a leather hand-stitched soccer ball, camp t-shirt, and personal evaluation. Each written evaluation is a valuable tool for your child's development as it is written personally by your child's coach for the week. How do you divide the campers into groups? Combination of age and skill. Usually the ratio of camper to coach ratio is 8:1, which is one of the best ratios in Atlanta and provides each camper with a personal experience. How long has Tavani Soccer been around? We started putting on camps in the North Atlanta area in 2002. Do you have a goalkeeper coach? Yes, we have an experienced goalkeeper coach on staff who solely concentrates on goalie training. What's the best time to watch my child play at camp? Parents are welcome to attend all sessions but the last hour of camp is the best to watch. We end every camp day with various games and tournaments, including a big tournament on Wednesday and Friday. We also have a brief awards ceremony on Friday at the end of camp that parents are encouraged to attend. Can I drop my son/daughter off earlier than 9 am? Absolutely. The coaching staff will be on the field around 8:30 AM every morning and we would love to have your kid join us "knocking the ball around". Can teams attend the camp? Actually we encourage teams or groups of players to attend the camp. We'll assign one of our high-quality staff members to your team and let them train together all week along with playing against other teams throughout the week. What options do I have to pay for the camp? You can pay online using credit card, Pay Pal, or by mailing in a check to Tavani Soccer, 5525 Martina Way, Atlanta, GA 30338. Contact us if you have any registration questions. Do you take any photos at camp? Every year after the summer camps we post photos of the camp on our website. What's the difference between the dri-fit shirt and the camp t-shirt? Every camper receives our popular cotton camp t-shirt. The moisture-wicking performance shirt is $15 and can be added to your camp registration when registering. What do we do if it rains? All sessions will be held rain or shine, Tavani Soccer does not cancel camps due to inclement weather. Campers will be moved for safety and camp will be resumed when appropriate. In the event of thunder, lightning or other serious weather conditions, campers will be moved indoors for safety and camp will be resumed when appropriate. Tavani Soccer Rain Policy: If we have to cancel one or more days for extreme inclement weather, Tavani Soccer Camp lost time will be made up by extending the hours of the regular camps for that week or on Saturday. In case that's not possible, we will offer a voucher for days lost that can be used for future Tavani Soccer Camps.
