Join us as Inter CT brings the ultimate full-time soccer experience to committed players both inside and outside the club.
Join the Inter CT staff, along with high-caliber guest coaches, for this inaugural residential camp at the stunning Northfield Mount Hermon School Campus.
The 2023 Inter CT Residential Camp will be hosted by our friends at Northfield Mount Hermon, Mount Hermon, Mass.
Northfield Mount Hermon (NMH) is located in western Massachusetts and is easily accessible from New England cities and Canada. The campus lies on the banks of the Connecticut River in a beautiful New England setting with extensive resources. It encompasses privately maintained country roads and ponds. The school is away from busy roads and traffic and has security on campus 24 hours a day.
This is an all-inclusive campsite and campers are housed in double rooms in the school dormitories. Each room comes with beds, desks, and dressers. Campers need to bring their own bedding and linens. We do suggest bringing a floor fan in case of hot weather to keep the rooms cool. Dorms do have lounges with cable tv, couches, and chairs.
Inter CT has access to several amenities on campus including turf and grass soccer fields, an indoor tennis center, dorm lounges, gymnasium, auditorium and more. There is an indoor swimming pool to provide some relaxation and regenerative off-the-field fun. We will also have access to the gymnasium and indoor tennis center, which is used in case of inclement weather.
Each day, campers eat in the dining hall for all-you-can-eat dining. The Northfield Mount Hermon staff will be on hand to provide nutritious, healthy and quality food service meeting each camper’s individual needs (including dietary restrictions). A salad bar, a sandwich bar, fruit stand, a vegetarian bar, and Gluten free area are available to provide additional options to their daily entrees and sides. A variety of juices, water and milk are available with every meal. NMH is known for having some of the best camp food in the country by offering extra made to order food such as a stir-fry bar, pizza bar, burger bar, nacho bar, and more! Each night there will also be a snack bar where campers can purchase pizza slices, snacks, Gatorade, and water.
The combination of on and off the field facilities at NMH generate a high level of excellence for both field players and goalkeeper who are attending camp.
Age-appropriate curriculums provide the best possible experience for all our players.
Limited registrations are available at each level.
For players born in 2015 and 2014.
We will inspire your child with our fun, educational, and challenging program delivered by Inter CT coaching staff. The focus of the program will be highly technical and introduce elements of decision making within the context of small-sided games. We aim to help your child learn how, when, and where to use their new skills.
Each day will include 7v7 games.
Your young soccer player will come home with a massive smile on their face and a blossoming love for the game that will see them beg to go back again next year!
For players born in 2013 and 2012.
Your child will improve both their technical skills and tactical understanding during educational training sessions and 9v9 gameplay. They will learn how to make decisions in game-based situations and be given the necessary tools to execute their desired outcome.
They will be pushed hard throughout the camp and challenged to leave a better player than when they arrived.
For players born in 2011 and 2010.
Prepare for the new season with our most competitive program, delivered in 11v11 format.
This program has an emphasis on improving the players' tactical understanding of the game using the Men's World Cup games and outcomes as examples as well as the tendencies of the Women's teams competing in this summers' World Cup in New Zealand.
As well as being an excellent program for individual improvement, this is an ideal opportunity for club teams to travel together and improve their tactical knowledge and team cohesion under the tutelage of our expert coaches.
For players born in 2009, 2008 and 2007.
Both age groups training builds on the "Love to Compete" program. It will add elements of fitness training, nutrition, psychology, and tactical information to get the players ready for the high school pre-season or captains practices.
This is also a great way for those players headed into pre-season to freshen up on their skills and get a pre pre-season in.
This camp will have four key elements:
1 - Theory - Online classroom sessions on each of the positions
2 - Technical work on the core competencies required for the position of choice
3 - Tactical elements when combined with different units. i.e., goalkeeper working with the defense, midfield playing into forwards
4 - Game situations, putting everything into practice
The staff at Inter CT appreciate more than most that the goalkeeper is an integral part of any team and deserves specialist coaching.
We encourage goalkeepers to attend the camp as part of their goalkeeping development. Our Partnerships with both GKHQ and L1 Goalkeeper gloves we expect the goalkeeper experience to be nothing but top quality.
Goalkeeping training is age specific and when appropriate, gender specific. Goalkeepers also receive evaluations, match analysis and Goalkeeping specific fitness.
The aim of the program is to share the knowledge & education of the position so that every goalkeeper can better understand the requirements of top goalkeepers and know what they have to do to achieve that level.
Please e-mail our goalkeeping director, Leon Othen, for further details on the goalkeeping curriculum and advice on registrations.
Goalkeepers attending camp will receive free goalkeeper gloves to use on the field.
