MADISON, Wis. --Registration for the University of Wisconsin men's soccer 2012 boys' summer camps, as well as the Badgers Day Camp for boys and girls, is currently underway.
The Wisconsin soccer staff is offering two elite camps with residential and commuter options. The two Boys' Elite Soccer Academy camps will be held June 28-July 1 and July 8-11. Each camp will offer opportunities to train with Badger head coach and U-23 National Team assistant coach John Trask, as well as assistants Keith Tiemeyer and Phil Presser and UW student-athletes.
The Elite Academy includes morning training in techniques such as finishing, passing, dribbling and ball control, as well as afternoon sessions concentrating on tactical development with full matches and tournaments. Campers also will take part in film sessions and a series of lectures and question-and-answer sessions, along with an optional college recruiting seminar.
A specialized goalkeeper curriculum will be an important feature of the camp. Goalkeepers will have individual training sessions tailored for their development as well as match analysis on the mental and tactical pieces of being a top goalkeeper.
The Badger Soccer Day Camp, scheduled for July 16-20, is a coed camp for boys and girls, ages 4-12, run jointly with UW women's soccer head coach Paula Wilkins and her staff. The camp was a tremendous success last year and features student-athletes from both the men's and women's soccer teams to help demonstrate skills and drills.
The camp provides boys and girls with an ideal environment to develop their soccer skills and knowledge of the game. Instruction is meant to be challenging and fun to support the young players' love of the game.
Little Stars, ages 4-6, will have a variety of activities and games added to the curriculum to keep the focus on having fun while learning skills, while the older players, ages 6-12, will be challenged at an appropriate level with more advanced activities for both field players and goalkeepers.
Campers are arranged in small groups with appropriate coach-to-player ratios to maximize learning opportunities.
All camps are open to any and all entrants (limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender). For more information and registration details, visit www.wisconsinsoccercamp.com.
