Clarkson Soccer Camp '99: Soccer With A Kick
There’s a new look and a new date for the Clarkson Soccer Camp.
This year’s edition of the popular North Country summer program will run from Monday, August 9, to Thursday, August 12, with the North Country Coaches Clinic slated for Friday, August 13
The camp is geared to providing specialized training for boys and girls ages 7 to 18 years old. With its multi-level format, the camp will meet the needs of all participants, whether beginners or the serious players looking to compete at the college level. Participants will be exposed to the fun and excitement of playing and training on short-sided, full field, and indoor facilities.
Conditioning, technical and tactical exercises and skill development with opportunities to put it all together in game situations will be a highlight of the daily camp activities. Once again, an exclusive multi-level Goalie Training Format has been incorporated in the schedule. In addition to instruction, players will have time to relax with old friends and new, and take advantage of the University’s many recreational facilities, including the Schuler Indoor Recreation Center.
Clarkson Soccer Camp '99 will be run under the direction of some of the most knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and professional staff in the region. Combined, they have nearly a quarter-century of coaching experience.
