Springfield College Mens Soccer Camp
This recruiting event is designed to provide a positive learning experience that is both enjoyable and competitive. Our curriculum is targeted toward high school aged student-athletes who maintain a strong interest in playing college soccer and desire to gain the experience of working with the coaching staff and playing at the top level facilities at Springfield College. Participants will interact and receive feedback and instruction from the Springfield men’s soccer coaching staff both on the field and in the classroom in effort to give insight on the experience of a varsity soccer player at Springfield College. Each clinic will feature technical training, small-sided games, and full-field scrimmages and will conclude with opportunities for parents and families to engage with the coaching staff in a Q&A session format. Typically, Springfield men’s soccer players will either be in attendance or working the camp which offers informal interaction between participants and current members of the team. We typically cap attendance to our clinics at approximately 50 to maintain an intimate and qualitative environment for all participants.
Your camp registration fee includes all meals and housing.
