The Ultimate Team Building Experience
We're back for our Second Annual MetaSport Summer Retreat. We're hosting an exciting and education-packed overnight training camp for MetaSport players U11 and up (that's birth year 2008 and older). Our goal is to enhance individual athlete development and team camaraderie. Sounds kinda like a travel tournament, right? Yes, but it's better.
Tournaments are fun for getting away, competing and being with friends. But they're not always the best use of time and money. Travel expenses alone can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. And, depending on the age, players may only get 150-240 minutes of competitive soccer.
We know we can do better. The MetaSport Summer Retreat invites team members to stay together, play together, eat together and learn together. The camp includes 720 minutes of training with outside experts in everything from performance training to nutrition. We'll have plenty of non-soccer fun too, including a team-building day at the Snow College ropes course, water-fun and hiking.
And new this year is coaches training administered by Mark O'Sullivan, who is a coach, coach educator and PhD researcher based in Stockholm Sweden. O'Sullivan works at Swedish premier league club AIK Solna where in his role as head coordinator of youth development he actively coaches and educates coaches players and parents.
