Soccer camp in Surrey with Wolverhampton Wanderers academy coaches

‘Player ID’ sessions in Cloverdale this month co-hosted by new Soccer Stars academy

Surrey’s new Soccer Stars Academy will play host to an “Elite Player ID Camp” involving coaches affiliated with an English Premier League team.

The camp, set for June 27 to 29 at Cloverdale Athletic Park, will be overseen by senior members of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ North American academy coaching staff, in partnership with Georgia-based Global Image Sports.

To fans of the game, Wolverhampton is commonly known as “Wolves.”

The Soccer Stars Academy was launched this year with Harvey Braich as academy director and his father, Ajit Braich, as technical director.

“This is a camp that we want everyone to know about, an opportunity to come and showcase their skills,” Harvey Braich told the Now-Leader.

“We have Harvey Parkes from Wolves’ academy in the U.K. traveling to Surrey to run the camp and identify some of the top players for advancement onto the national and international stage,” he added. “It’s not very often you are able to spend a few days training with a Premier League academy staff member who coaches some of top youth players from all over the world.”

Soccer Stars is the partner club host of the camp in Cloverdale, the fee for which is $135 per player. Sessions are open to girls and boys aged seven to 18, with start times at 5:30 p.m. (for U8-U12) and 7 p.m. (U13 and above).

“Players excelling at this camp will be invited to the 2018 Wolverhampton Wanderers National Residential Camp, staffed by the academy coaches from the Wolverhampton Wanderers Academy in England,” says a post at soccerstars.ca. “Players excelling there will be invited to England for an Academy experience.”

Braich said Soccer Stars aims to improve soccer players in all aspects of the game.

“We strive to make all our programs affordable and enjoyable, whilst delivering the highest level of coaching,” he says in a press release posted to the academy’s website.

“We develop technique, skills and game intelligence, catering to all levels whether you are a beginner or advanced player pursuing scholarships.”

For five days in March, Soccer Stars held a spring break camp at Newton Athletic Park.
