This ID & Skills camp will feature some of the top high school aged players from around the country. Our goal is to simulate a top collegiate level training environment. Campers will be challenged both mentally and physically over the 4 days of camp. There will be a focus on "match playing" between the camp teams including 11 v 11 and 6 v 6 small sided tournaments. The emphasis will be placed on group and team tactics. Campers will be put in problem solving situations where their individual tactical knowledge and technical skills will be challenged. There will be an All - Star match that will feature the top campers.
USC strength and conditioning staff will provide an instructional session for the campers. An instructional guide will be provided. College coaches will be on site by visiting Division I, II and III schools throughout the duration of camp. Campers will be able to sit in on both a question and answer coaching panel and a college player panel. In addition, they will receive information packets that will help guide them through the collegiate athletics recruiting process. These camps are structured for the serious soccer player who is looking to get to the next level.
