The focus will be the improvement of technical skills, as well as the development of small-sided tactical skills and a large team tactical understanding.
Similar to last year we are offering the regular curriculum for both weeks of our camp. In addition we will also offer a ‘morning only’ session for our beginning campers during both weeks of camp.
Players that attend the full day camp will be placed in instructional groups according to age, ability, and wishes. The camp is directed toward players with club and travel team experience. The focus will be the improvement of technical skills, as well as the development of small-sided tactical skills and a large team tactical understanding.
Lunch is included in the price of the camp and will be provided to each full-day camper (Monday thru Thursday) but due to renovations to the College Cafeteria we shall be using an alternative location. Lunch will consist of a deli sandwich, pizza or similar with plenty of fluids, snacks etc. We apologize for the change this year as we know the lunches are a popular part of the camp but the renovations are needed and we will enjoy the benefits as we return to the cafeteria in 2018.
The camp includes a competitive indoor competition as well as full/larger-sided outdoor games. Individual technical competitions at the end of the week provide additional excitement.
Beginning soccer players can attend the Vassar College Soccer Camp by attending the morning session from 9am to 11:30am each day. Emphasis is placed on technical skill development through fun and creative drills with enthusiastic and supportive coaches.
We encourage early sign up to avoid disappointment, as last year’s camps were sold out prior to the start. Vassar’s head men's soccer coach Andy Jennings directs both sessions of the soccer camp.
