Our three-hour 11U-12U Mini-Camps will be held each Monday from 5 to 8 PM at OC Great Park Field 6 starting OCT 11.

Blue Wave 11U/12U Mini-Camps include 90 minutes of instruction and practice as well as 90 minutes of live scrimmage with our players or game against a local team, also mixed 11U and 12U players.
