Q. Why is Fuse Soccer unique?
A. Fuse Soccer has developed a unique ‘soccer meets vacation’ experience. Play the greatest sport in the world and enjoy the epic adventures to be found at the Universal Orlando Resort™. Choose one of four types of courses running throughout the year - the Residential Soccer Academy, the Five Day Soccer Academy, the Two Day Soccer Experience and the One Day Soccer Experience.
Q. Who are the Residential Academy courses for?
A. This is a great chance for players from Youth Soccer Clubs throughout the United States and all over the world to have some serious fun in Orlando. There is one free Adult Coach/Leader place for every 10 players who enrol. On the Sunday check into your approved Universal Orlando Resort™ hotel for five fantastic nights (with the Universal Dining Card* meal deal included for five days).
Following breakfast on Monday you will be transferred by coach to the Training Ground and then go on to experience five days of top quality coaching. Please be aware that it will be the responsibility of the Coach/Leader to supervise the players once they have returned to the hotel following the soccer sessions each day. And last but not least… enjoy entrance to world-leading theme and water parks.
*The Universal Dining Card is valid for one (1) Quick Service meal to include: one (1) entrée, one (1) non-alcoholic beverage and one (1) dessert at participating restaurants indicated by the Universal Dining Plan symbol in either Universal Studios FloridaTM, Universal's Islands of AdventureTM, Universal’s Volcano BayTM theme parks OR Universal CityWalkTM OR one (1) meal and one (1) soft drink beverage from a select menu at participating Universal CityWalkTM locations.
