The Girls Leadership Soccer Camp is led by Chelsea Piers Soccer Director Jon Ruddock. The staff is comprised of local prominent High School and Club coaches, as well as former collegiate and professional players.

Our coaches run on-field sessions and enforce the leadership curriculum, as well as run small group sessions and team building workshops. The objective of each on-field instruction is to create a highly competitive training environment to get the most out of each athlete. It focuses on the demands both technically and tactically of the highest level field players. It challenges all young players and provides them with the skills to be highly effective players on their respective teams. Drills/sessions are aimed at getting individuals to play successfully in any setting.

Daily Leadership Training

Every day, athletes work with our leadership experts to learn and explore the 6 leadership principles — wisdom, courage, vision, passion, generosity and trust. Athletes develop first an understanding of the meaning of leadership and how it relates to their athletic performance and their life decisions. They then begin to unlock their own leadership abilities as well as learn various methods and techniques to help themselves and others achieve. Finally, they are given the opportunity to apply this knowledge and awareness on the field and in the locker room. Through a series of mentally and physically challenging tasks and exercises, athletes learn cross-functional teamwork and collaboration, leadership without authority techniques, positive communication, assertive decision-making and more. All training and leadership sessions are led by a specialized team of experts from the private sector and from Chelsea Piers Connecticut.
