Spaces Remain For Bulldogs' Summer Soccer Camps
Registration forms, camp schedules and additional information can be found online at www.hailstate.com/camps or by contacting MSU assistant coach Andy Manners at email@example.com or (662) 418-7694.
State's camp slate includes a pair of Youth Day Camps (June 4-8 and July 23-27), the third annual Striker-Keeper Camp June 22-24.
The Youth Day Camps will run 1 p.m.-4 p.m. for ages 4-7 and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. for ages 8-13. Cost for the afternoon session is $129, while the day-long camp will be $239 per camper. The full-day camp includes lunch each day. Camp registration for both age groups includes an MSU camp t-shirt and a soccer ball.
The day camps, which will be held at the MSU Soccer Field, are designed to meet the needs of the youth soccer player in a safe and fun learning environment. During the week-long camps, campers will work on developing soccer fundamentals such as dribbling, turning, shooting, passing, shielding, running with the ball, heading and goalkeeping.
Mississippi State head coach Neil Macdonald, along with Manners, fellow assistant coach Myranda Sanders and volunteer assistant coach Robbie Kroger, will be conducting the Striker-Keeper Camp for the third-straight year after stellar reviews in the camp's first two years. The camp, which is open to players ages 8-18, costs $199 for commuters and $249 for residential. The camp will focus on building the fundamental skills of beginner or experienced strikers and goalkeepers.
Strikers will work on dribbling to shoot, moving off the ball to create scoring opportunities, finishing, shooting and attacking headers. Goalkeepers will focus on shot handling, diving, defending crosses and breakaways, foot skills and distribution from Kroger, a 20-year veteran goalkeeper.
