MADISON, Wis. -- Over 350 local youth soccer players were on hand to receive instruction from some of the area’s best soccer players this spring as the Wisconsin men’s soccer team hosted a pair of clinics in the Madison area.
“Interaction with youth soccer players in the Madison area, whether at our home matches, camps or at clinics, is a very exciting component of UW soccer,” assistant coach Keith Tiemeyer said.
“Our players are very good at engaging the young soccer players in the community. We want these young stars to feel a connection with the Badger soccer program and we hope to feed their passion for soccer at these clinics.
“The opportunity to offer area soccer associations a few of these clinics each year is something we want to continue to do.”
This summer, 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 Tiemeyer and Phil Presser and UW student-athletes.
Wisconsin will also host the Badger Soccer Day Camp, scheduled for July 16-20. The camp 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.
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.
