Youth Soccer Camp Review: Looking for something different than the usual soccer programs? It is summertime, after all – and the experts in soccer tell us that developing well rounded athletes is important … As players head into the summer looking to take advantage of the down time from school and step their game up a notch for the upcoming season, one cannot help but weigh out the best options for soccer camps. If U.S. Soccer is looking for leaders and highly competitive, well rounded athletes – this might be just the place to take a break from the norm and enjoy an adventure.
What should be a primary motive for the camp you select for your child? A common factor that is not always of consideration is the benefits of training at high altitudes. Training in regions that are at high altitude allow for a player to build up their core strength due of the thinness of the air requiring you to train harder. Located in South Tahoe, Tahoe Training Camps’ elevation is at 6,300 feet and provides youth athletes with the ultimate summer soccer experience – in fact: people lose 3% of their oxygen intake per 1000 feet of elevation they climb…meaning, when you go to Tahoe Training Camps, you will be training with 20% less oxygen in your lungs; this will give any player the mental and physical edge when they hit season their season this fall.

The United States Olympic Training Center is located at high altitude where the air is thinnest, helping for players to develop stronger due to having to work harder during their exercises.
Altitude Specialist, Bruce Kirk states:
“Kenya’s highest point is Mount Kenya where the air is much thinner and their bodies have to work harder to run, lift, throw or jump. When athletes return to sea level after a stint at elevation, they’re significantly stronger and more powerful due to the increased mass of their circulating red blood cells.”
Kirk helped pioneer the concept of coaching Olympic-level gymnasts at high altitude that is now practiced throughout development and training techniques.
Dr. Federico Formenti, a physiology researcher at the University of Oxford states:
“It is the higher capacity to deliver fuel to muscles that athletes are interested in.”
