NIU Soccer Camps Registration
DeKalb, Ill. - The NIU men’s soccer program is pleased to announce dates for their summer 2011 NIU Soccer Camps. Camps will be offered for a wide range of age groups, with all camps based on the perennially successful NIU Soccer model.
Camps include the NIU Spring Prospect Camp (April 3rd, 2011), the NIU Developmental Academy and High School Academy Camps (June 12-15, 2011), and the Elite College Prospect Camp (July 22-24, 2011).
"We're very excited for another great camp season in 2011," NIU head coach Eric Luzzi said. "We take an enormous amount of pride in the quality experience we give to all of our campers each summer."
The first available camp, the NIU Spring Prospect Camp is a one day camp, aimed at high school juniors and seniors, as well as players currently playing at a junior college, whose goal is to play college soccer. Camp clinicians will be the current NIU Soccer staff, with Division I, II, III and NAIA coaches also in attendance.
The NIU Developmental Academy is designed for players in grades 5-8, and provides the best in technical and tactical instruction, as well as an enjoyable camp atmosphere. Both field player and goalkeeper training will be offered at this residential camp, which is staffed by the current NIU Soccer staff as well as high quality coaches from the region.
The NIU High School Academy Camp is focused on current high school players who are looking to develop and improve their game. More advanced techniques and tactics will be taught by a camp staff featuring the current NIU coaches, as well as coaches from nearby Div. III and NAIA college and universities.
The last camp of the summer will be the NIU Elite College Prospect Camp, which is offered for high school juniors and seniors who are serious about their game, and about continuing their careers in college. At this camp, the players will take part in sessions designed for the current NIU men’s soccer players, and will experience many of the same things NIU’s players do. Staff will include the current NIU staff, as well as other Division I coaches from some of the region’s most successful programs.
