The Tampa Elite Soccer Academy camps are held on the 100 acre campus of the University of Tampa, 401 W. Kennedy Blvd. Tampa FL 33606. Residential campers housing and food are in our campus dorms & cafeteria. Soccer activities are held at Pepin Stadium (located on N. Boulevard, 50 yards north of the light at North B Street). Other camp activities will include indoor soccer/futsol, sand soccer, video & swimming. The goal of our camps is to lay down a foundation of individual and team skills with high emphasis on individual player development. Campers are grouped by age and ability. Players may be moved up in age group if we feel it is in the best interest of the player in their development: safety is a primary focus when making this decision as we will not put player safety at risk.

All staff are USSF licensed or EUEFA badge coaches who have Level 2 Background check screening (State Law). All camps also have an athletic trainer on site. All athletic training needs (tapping, medical issues, asthma, allergies) needs to be discussed with camp director and athletic trainer prior to starting camp at registration the first day of camp). When swimming time is available (30-45 minutes if available), UT lifeguards are at the pool along with our staff coaches for the age groups. Players not choosing to use swimming option can do video during this time. It is our mission to make your camp experience the best ever. Activities are well planned, start on time, and will challenge each participant to become a better player.

*At all camps, early drop off and late pick up times are available for day camps, contact mo.tesacamps@gmail.com **
