Mercersburg’s elite camp is an overnight program for experienced players who want to take their game to the next level. Athletes will participate in 2-3 training sessions per day, with an emphasis on the technical and tactical aspects of the game, and will also have a chance to apply these concepts each evening during our competitive 11 v 11 matches.

Mercersburg's coaching staff will cover functional training by position, such as individual defending, midfield play and possession, and final third work for strikers and goalkeepers.
