FTSA Elite Training Camp (2006-1010) at Watsessing Park (July 27th-31st)

First Touch Soccer Academy (FTSA) are happy to announce its inaugural 2020 Elite Training Camp at Watsessing Park, Bloomfield. This camp is a new introduction to our programming for 2020. The Elite Training Camp will be invite and application only.

As a club neutral program the players attending this camp will come from some of the leading clubs in the state. It promises to be an exceptional week of challenging and intense training. Players will be invited to this camp from FTSA coaches. You are also able to apply to attend this camp by emailing Rob Leather at [email protected]

'I am excited to enhance FTSA programming for the summer of 2020. Our Pre Season camp remains a wonderful training experience for all. The goal is that this camp by being smaller, and a little more consistent in its range of player will provide an even better environment to focused development. I am really excited to work with Tom, Paul and Lee during the week.'
