By opening CPS Soccer Camps, Caleb hopes to provide players in America with reputable programs where each player can go to work on their game in a top quality environment while receiving hands on work from our experienced coaching staff at every camp they attend.
"When I was growing up, it was really difficult for my mother to find me quality training programs. We would ofter drive for hours and go overseas for training. I hope to change this for the next generation and make top level coaching accessible for them. I believe its crucial that current professional players get involved with the next generation. We want to provide the best camp in Tennessee at an affordable price. We are not trying to "select" kids to go to a European camp like other large brands are doing. We know the rules and understand that any child selected to go to Europe with the idea of being signed to a contract simply can't happen unless they have a European passport. This is not what we are about. We want to bring the best camp right here to Nashville so these players are simply getting a first class experience in their own back yards so to speak"
