COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan
For the protection of all participants, we anticipate there will be COVID-related health and safety guidelines in place when these camps begin. Our goal is to provide you as much information as we can in a timely manner. Because we expect that CDC, State, and University guidelines and recommendations could change between now and June, our initial health and safety plans will be released in mid-to-late May and will be updated as necessary throughout the summer.
The Michigan Tech Soccer Identification Clinic will provide players with a greater understanding of the demands of a Division II women's soccer program. Players will receive college-level training with exposure to advanced technical and tactical field sessions, a strength and conditioning session, and informational panels where they can ask questions of players and coaches. Campers will have an opportunity to work with the Michigan Tech coaching staff as well as be able to interact with current Michigan Tech Women's Soccer team members. This clinic will give the campers a realistic picture of what it means to compete at this level.
NOTE: Camp size is limited to 44 players and 5 goalies.
What to Expect
Our camp is intensive and games and scrimmages are highly competitive to keep all players challenged. Come prepared to run drills, face off in small-sides games, and perfect your technique. Outdoor training sessions will be held on Sherman Field, but in case of rain, camp may be held in the SDC Multipurpose Room.
This camp is open to girls entering grades 10-12 as of Fall 2021. Campers should bring shin guards, soccer shoes and tennis shoes, a soccer ball with a name clearly printed on it, a water bottle, and clothing for all weather. A packet of required forms will be sent to participants via email once they are registered. The required forms must be submitted prior to the start of camp.
Cost: Commuter only $149
Deadline to register: July 31, 2021
Payment in full is due at the time of registration. Refunds are available until July 31. After July 31, refunds will be issued for medical reasons only.
