PSU Skills School Camp

PSU's Skills School Camp is an intensive five-day camp where players learn new skills and strive to compete at a higher level. Each day there will be mini-competitions in the morning, a different skill focus, shooting training, scrimmages, as well as SAQ agility training. Travel players from all clubs are welcome, especially those who are ready and willing to compete at a high level. 2010 and up recommended. We are excited to have you!

How do the Referrals work?

The referral system was created to encourage the idea of players tagging along to PSU Soccer Summer Camp with all their best friends regardless of soccer level.

The process of referring someone is pretty basic - - Send an email to generalmanager@parkslopeunited.com introducing the potential new camper. If the referral meets the criteria below, then a $50 credit will be allotted to the individual who referred the new camper. 

The criteria are;

  • The person who you are referring must have no prior participation in any PSU Program.

  • You must introduce the new camper via email (generalmanager@parkslopeunited.com)

 

  • The new camper has to be ages 3-13.
