CAMP PHILOSOPHY

The Ohio State Women’s Soccer Camp is committed to excellence. Our goal is to provide a balanced learning environment that is both challenging and fun. Our camps have been developed specifically for the female soccer player and the curriculum is appropriate for all levels of players’ abilities and ages. Our experienced camp staff will combine individual technical and tactical training with small and larger group tactics. In each camp session, campers are grouped by age, soccer ability and physical maturity.

INDIVIDUAL RESIDENTIAL CAMP

June 26-29 | Grades 6-12
$560 ($585 after June 1)**

This intensive individual camp will unite players by age and ability. Technical repetition, skillful decision making, individual defending, finishing, competitive fury, combative courage, enhanced footwork, coordination, speed and agility training will radiate throughout the curriculum. Mini tournaments and competitive matches will provide opportunities for individuals to improve and shine. High school age campers who aspire to compete as Division I student-athletes can experience collegiate fitness standards and interact with some of our current Buckeye Soccer players to learn what it takes to be the best! Our experienced camp staff, maintained at an 8:1 camper-to-counselor ratio, will balance the competition, fun, and learning. All meals are provided for campers and all campers will stay in 24 hour supervised, air conditioned dormitories on the OSU Campus.
