The Heinemann Soccer mission is to honor God through the way we teach and train players. It is our desire for players to grow and improve their soccer skills no matter what level they are at. We believe in creating a positive atmosphere where players can compete, develop, and enjoy the game of soccer.
How it All Began
In 1998, at the age of 11, little Tommy Heinemann canvassed the
neighborhood with bright blue flyers in hopes of making some
summer money to save for a new bike.
That summer 4 children attended the first ever Heinemann Soccer
Camp in the Heinemann’s side yard. The kids soaked up the sun
and played some soccer, while Mrs. Heinemann brought watermelon
out to the kids for snack. The kids had a blast!
Over the next several years, Heinemann Soccer Camp grew into one
of the popular local summer camps in Brentwood, Missouri. Known
for being affordable and family friendly, the camp was, and still is
dedicated to providing a pathway for kids of all skillsets. From the
players that had little or no soccer experience, to players who had
been playing for years, HSC created a place where each player
could be challenged to grow and develop as a player.
Where it is Now
HSC has evolved into Heinemann Soccer (HS) and has stuck to its roots providing opportunity for players of all ages and skill sets to be challenged. HS teaches players how to train and play with the ultimate mindset of glorifying God through playing the beautiful game of soccer. HS encompasses all the different camps and clinics that Tom and the HS staff run. From small group training to full team camps and clinics to consulting work, the HS staff prides itselfon the teaching and development of the players in an energetic atmosphere. The fundamentals of soccer, teamwork, and attitude are at the core of the HS tradition. At summer camps, HS breaks soccer into its simplest form highlighting dribbling, passingand shooting as main teaching points. It is an excellent environmentfor young players to hone their skills, while being in a competitive, positive and energetic atmosphere.
