Soccer Clinics + Camps
Invincible Stars Soccer Academy soccer clinics & camps provides young players the opportunity to specialize on specific soccer skills and focus on their improvement.

It’s always fun, interactive and safe and enjoyable.
Our vision is to recruit and to develop young players between the ages of 6–11 yrs and produce elite young players to gain top skills and technical abilities on the field and to be good individuals off the field. We want to produce young players that enjoy playing “attractive brand possession” based soccer that will help improve their skill, techniques, and decision-making year after year.
Pre-Academy Phase 1-2
Ages 6 – 8 years
Our young players remain at the centre of everything we do while building a unique family- based soccer community that is positive, enjoyable, interactive, safe, fun, and nurtures a learning environment. The Player Centred Approach cultivates a lifelong passion for the Game of Soccer and provides the players with the opportunity to achieve their full individual potential.
Our academy values the development of the young player. We aspire to elevate, empower and inspire the next generation soccer players to become the best version of themselves. Even though our academy focuses on developing elementary children, we enhance technical/tactical, physical, psychological, and social attributes for all age and skill levels. We provide a competitive platform that allows aspiring and committed players to continue playing at a higher, competitive level.
Our players and coaches will continue to be guided by principles of fair play, moral and ethical behaviour and a hard work ethic. Our coaches understand that no player is a number, but a mind to mold for good of the future and our community. We understand that the dream of becoming a skilled player can be achieved through discipline, commitment, repetition, perseverance and a drive for success.
Constant feedback is imperative. We encourage critical thinking and finding solutions in game scenarios to help improve the player’s game intelligence. Player involvement through Q’s and A’s are key components to problem solving. Our dream is to one day see some of our academy players featured on the bigger international stage.
