Eric Bell has been the head coach of the women's soccer team at Texas Christian University since 2011. Before that, he led the Florida State Seminoles to a conference title and an appearance in the College Cup championship game. That's the sort of coaching acumen young players (and their parents) can expect at Eric Bell Soccer Academy, which makes use of the TCU coaching staff and the campus's first-class athletic facilities.
Camps and classes are meant to be motivating and fun—especially for smaller children—but activities always come down to honing four parts of each footballer's game: the tactical, the technical, the psychological, and the physical.
- Summer Soccer Camp: focuses on developing the skills of the young player through exercises and games; half-day camp is open to boys and girls aged 5–7, while full-day camp is open to boys and girls aged 8–14
- Elite Soccer Project: focuses on polishing skills and goalkeeper training; open to boys and girls in grades 2–8
- College ID Soccer Camp: designed for advanced player development and exposure to top college coaches in Divisions I–III; open to girls aged 14 or older
