Brit-Am Summer Day Camps are a fun and exciting way to develop each child’s skill. Our programs are run by professionally trained coaches in a fun and safe environment. Every player/group that attends our programs will have a qualified professional head coach, who works with Brit-Am Soccer Academy throughout the year.
Brit-Am Soccer Academy has been providing summer soccer camps in Montgomery County and the Washington, DC area since 1999. We provide various types of soccer camps for kids aged between 3-18yrs and ranging from recreational to travel level players, each camp is designed to meet the needs of the players in its community, ranging from Day Camps, Residential Camps to High School Prep Camps as well as Goalkeeper and Seasonal Holiday Camps (Spring Break, Winter Break). The Brit- Am Camps are run by professionally licensed coaches and are overseen by the Brit-Am Camp Director Steve Knapman.
Our soccer camps and day camps are great for every soccer player, experienced or beginner. Each day starts with a full camp activity which consists of energetic games to get them excited and ready for play. The kids are then divided into their groups, where they will work on their individual skills and play lots of fun small sided games. Each morning will then finish off with the World Cup Competition which is a small tournament with prizes for the winners. During the week we also hold mini competitions to find the “Best Dressed Soccer Uniform” and “Crazy Soccer Hat”.
The afternoons are all about scoring goals with shooting games and small group and individual competitions. Kids get to play their favorite games such as Power Finesse, Swedish Fish and Penalty Shoot Outs. The afternoon sessions are low intensity due to the summer heat but packed with fun and challenging activities to keep the kids developing their game.
Each day of our soccer camps will concentrate on teaching each player the rules of the game and basic techniques. This will be done by the use of small games such as some of the kid’s favorites, Sharks and Minnows, Stuck in the Mud, Red light-Green light, Ghost Busters and Raid the Castle. All these games will help develop motor skills and cognitive abilities. For the older children, we will also conduct game like scrimmages, where the players will get to learn the rules of the “REAL GAME”, and compete in team activities.
Prizes can also be won during the week through player participation in the Best Dressed Soccer Player Competition and Best Soccer Hat competition.

For 20 years Brit-Am Soccer Academy has provided this region’s premier camp experience for youth soccer players. Our PDL/Advanced Summer Camp offers players the opportunity to develop their game in a fun and game-oriented setting. Our professionally licensed coaching staff from Potomac Soccer and Brit-Am Soccer will help build and foster a foundation of skills, confidence and passion for the game.
During camps, players will spend time working on their core skills of dribbling, passing, shooting, and turns/moves through fun and challenging games through the use of the Potomac Soccer Association Player Development curriculum. Camps also provide a unique setting for players to develop both individual and group friendships that can last for many years. These bonds can become instrumental in a child’s development both on and off the field.
Why come to camp as a group/team?
Brit-Am Goalkeeper School welcomes goalkeepers of all levels. Keepers will train with a professional Brit-Am goalkeeper coach. The players will get up to 90 minutes of intensive goalkeeper skills and techniques training and 90 minutes of footskills training with the outfield players. We provide a curriculum for all age groups and abilities to ensure your child gets the most out of his or her time with the goalkeeper coach and other goalkeepers. Keepers will cover topics ranging from but not limited to stance, footwork, basic shot stopping and handling, diving, distribution and passbacks, 1 v 1’s and positioning. All keepers will be shown exercises they can do on their own and will receive a personalized player evaluation at the end of the clinic or camp.
The Brit-Am Advanced Goalkeeper Camp is aimed at players in eighth grade and above who are looking to prepare for the upcoming fall or high school soccer season. Keepers will train from 9 am to noon each day with a qualified, professional Brit-Am Goalkeeper School trainer.
The advanced camp starts each day with a complete dynamic warm-up followed by a technical warm-up where the keepers will be using primarily their feet. From there they will go into handling and then onto the day’s topics which will center around the more refined points of the position. Throughout the week, coaches will cover tipping and deflecting, communication, dealing with crosses, set pieces and distribution. Additionally, keepers will receive plenty of touches and reinforcement of their basic goalkeeper skills such as shot-stopping, diving, footwork, angles and 1-v-1s.
The coaches will also hold classroom sessions where keepers can watch video and break down the position.
All keepers will receive a personalized player evaluation at the end of the week.
