For the last 25 years, Hall of Fame Coach Thaier Mukhtar and his award-winning staff have led the most popular youth soccer camp in Metro Detroit. Designed and directed by Coach Mukhtar, these camps have welcomed thousands of players across the tri-county region each July. The camp is designed to push players to reach their potential, allow them to train with their friends and teammates, and prepare them for their upcoming seasons. Players will spend the week learning the game the right way, working hard, and most importantly, having fun! Join thousands of camp alumni that have improved their understanding of the game and taken their skills to the next level.
