    At the Virginia Soccer Centers of Excellence at Episcopal High School, campers learn what it takes to compete at the collegiate level. The ADVANCED CENTERS for girls is designed for club and high school players seeking to play at the next level of competitive soccer. The Virginia Coaches and players, along with an excellent staff representing almost every level of collegiate soccer, will be present at each session and will interact closely with campers throughout the week.

    The Soccer Centers for Girls at Episcopal High School are geared toward the serious soccer player who has her eye on playing college soccer. By working with top quality coaches, many of whom represent the different levels of college soccer and by training directly with our players from the University of Virginia, campers will get a realistic impression of what it takes to compete at the collegiate level. The focus of the camp is on improving individual technique and skills, with an even greater emphasis on understanding the game and the player's role within a team.

    There is a specialized goalkeeper program within the Soccer Centers, which will allow the goalkeepers to receive position specific training and match play. Be sure to check the box on the application to be registered in the goalkeeping sessions.

    The Soccer Centers of Excellence are staffed by the UVA Women's Soccer staff and players, including (but not limited to): Steve Swanson, Head Coach, Virginia; Ron Raab, Assistant Coach, Virginia; and Kerry Dziczkaniec, Assistant Coach, Virginia.
