Laura Madden: NJ State Licensed Coach; 17 years coaching experience with all levels including: Summit Soccer Club Trainer (1996-2015 Girls H.S. coach at Summit High School (2000-2004, 2010); Summit Public School elementary teacher (1996-present).


Players participate in small-sided drills and games designed to keep their attention, while teaching soccer fundamentals.

Advanced Skills and Drills (9-12 years old) is geared towards building individual soccer skills, emphasizing ball control. Included are controlled dribbling, trapping, passing, heading and controlled shooting.

A question I often receive is what makes On the Ball Soccer Camp so special? We are a community – as close as a family. Our lead staff are all professional coaches, most of which work for the Summit Soccer Club. We are educators as well so we know how to engage all of our campers.

Something that makes our camp special is our support staff. We have middle school players who volunteer, and then we have high school staff who help our lead coaches. The players that attend our camp then have fun watching these players play soccer – or even see them at a local pool during the summer!

Welcome to On the Ball Soccer Camp 2021. Last summer we were lucky to be one of the few camps that was approved by the state to hold camp. It was different but we kept everyone safe and our players had a blast. We are excited to be back in Summit for the 23rd year!
