Kent State Soccer Camps
2014 Girl's College ID Camp
Kent State University is pleased to announce that they will be hosting a Girls Soccer College I.D. Camp on February 8 and 9, 2014 at the KSU Indoor Field House.
February 8-9, 2014
Cost: $135 per player
The I.D. Camp will feature the staff of the Kent State women's soccer team as well as other women’s college coaches from across Ohio and Pennsylvania.
This two-day event is designed for advanced player development and exposure to Division I, II and III women’s college coaches from the area. College coaches who have attended in the past and conducted clinic sessions are Cleveland State, Slippery Rock, Hiram, Notre Dame College, Baldwin Wallace, Case Western Reserve, Ursuline, Wooster, Ohio Northern and Edinboro. In addition to college coaches, Kent State players will be used for demonstration proposes.
The Kent State staff believes that players need to be exposed to the technical, physical, and mental demands of the college game. This same philosophy will be applied at the I.D. Camp. The focus of all activities will be to allow the campers to experience what it takes to compete at the collegiate level by having the players participate in game like activities and in an environment that showcases their abilities.
Enrollment in the camp is limited to players in grades 8-12 who want to play collegiate soccer. Players will receive individual attention from the staff of college coaches in attendance. A combination of training sessions, small-sided 8v8, and full 11v11 games will be at the core of the camp curriculum. Goal keepers will have private instruction from specific goal keeper coaches.
**On Saturday before the I.D. Camp starts at 1pm there will be a walking campus tour for those players wishing to do so. Information about the campus tour will be sent out to registered players.
*Saturday activities start at 3 p.m. with check-in followed by a one and half hour training session for field players and goal keepers, 8v8 games and finishing with a one-hour lecture on being a collegiate athlete and the demands of playing college soccer at the different divisions. We have find that most players have a misconception on what sort of commitment and ability it takes to play collegiate soccer. Evening will conclude at 10pm.
*Sunday activities start at 8 a.m. with 11v11 games. Each player will compete in at least three 50-minute games. Games will be completed and the I.D. Camp will conclude at 3pm.
Registration deadline: We will take registrations up until the day of camp or until camp fills up!
Accommodations: Players can commute or stay in a local hotel at their own expense.
