2019 EPD Summer Soccer Academy

This summer Colorado Soccer Association (CSA) will again offer the Elite Player Development (EPD) Summer Soccer Academy. CSA Director of Coaching, Mike Freitag, has teamed up with the International Football Academy (IFA) to offer players 10-14 years of age (players born in 2005-2009) a week of fun challenging individual development. The Elite Player Development program is designed to offer serious players additional training to compliment the training they receive within their club.  The Academy offers an opportunity for the staff to become familiar and to work with some of Colorado’s upcoming talent.  The emphasis is on individual player development, with specific attention on technical growth.

EPD is a program that is closely associated with the Olympic Development Program. In fact, players at the camp will be evaluated by ODP staff. Players that show well at the camp will be invited and encouraged to tryout for the Olympic Development Program.
Coach Freitag, along with IFA Directors Hugo Diaz and Andrew Kummer, will oversee an outstanding staff of coaches who will offer a curriculum that not only concentrates on an individual’s technical and tactical development, but will offer advice on nutrition, sports psychology, and injury prevention.
The following are comments made from parents who had their children participate in recent EPD events:
“The best camp we have been to and we have been to them all.”
“As a former player who grew up in the ODP system here in Colorado.  I wanted to say thanks for providing such a great program.  The staff have been excellent and the passion they share for soccer shines through at each and every session.”  

The program is available to girls or boys, 10-14 years of age (players born in 2005-2009) of all skill levels.  The EPD Academy will offer training for goalkeepers along with the field players. Training will be held Monday – Friday during the hours of 9am to 1pm.  Players will also receive an EPD Summer Academy t-shirt. Below is information on each camp and the link to register.
