SUMMER CAMP

Sal Caccavale Soccer Academy has been running summer camps for over 15 years and continues to grow every year! Summer camp is a fun and inclusive environment for kids of all ages and skill levels. While all of our campers come to have fun, the reason our camp is different and better than other soccer camps in the area is the training environment and the improvement campers will make throughout the summer.

Campers range from 6-19 years old and all attend camp with the same goal - to have fun and get better! We have an amazing coaching staff that have all played college or professional soccer that interact with players throughout the morning and even hop in some of the afternoon games! It’s truly a family environment at Sal’s Summer Camp! Our camp involves technical development, a ton of gameplay, weekly awards, and a lot of fun! Kids will really enjoy the atmosphere our camp offers and will be wanting to come back for more.

ELITE EVENING TRAINING

These sessions are attended by players of all ages that are serious about developing to play at the highest level possible.

Over the years, we have been involved in the training of many current and/or former professionals (both MLS and Europe), NCAA Division 1,2,3 college players, and many of the best high school Varsity and JV players from all around the DC metro area. These sessions are intense yet so amazing to play in or to come out and watch. Players that attend these sessions will have the opportunity to see/play with some of the best players that have come out of the DMV area recently.

In 2019, many of the Georgetown Hoyas attended our sessions before their amazing season which crowned them National Champions. We also had players from the University of Maryland, Clemson University, College of Charleston, Colgate University, American University, and George Washington University attend our sessions.

These evening sessions have become the premier spot to train throughout the summer in the DMV.

Following Wilson, RJ went on to play 4 years at the Division 3 level for Arcadia University where he received a BS in Business Administration.
