STARKVILLE, Miss. – With a great summer of soccer that culminates with the World Cup, there is no better way to get your player involved in the game than with a week at Mississippi State soccer camp.
Aaron Gordon and his staff opened its soccer camp slate with last weekend’s College ID Camp, and registration for the summer camp slate that begins June 2 is underway now.
Players can register for the camps online at www.hailstate.com/camps.
The Little Dawg, Half Day and Full Day Camps begin the summer sessions June 2-5.
The Little Dawg Camp, which costs $120 and runs from 9 a.m.-11:30 a.m. each day, is open to boys and girls ages 4-6 and is designed to instruct young players in agility, coordination and individual skills in a fun setting.
The Half Day and Full Day camps focus on individual skills, team tactics and fundamentals in a fun, competitive environment. Both camps are open to ages 7-14, and the Half Day Camp ($150) runs to noon each day while the Full Day Camp ($250) goes to 3 p.m.
The Bulldogs will host three camps in July, beginning with the popular Striker/Keeper Camp July 11-13. The camp, open to boys and girls ages 10-18, costs $350 for residents and $300 for commuters.
Strikers will work on ball striking, finishing techniques, 1v1 dribbling and movement off the ball to create scoring opportunities. Goalkeepers will focus on shot stopping, handling, diving, crosses, breakaways and positioning. Each afternoon the two will come together to create game-like environments.
High school squads will have the chance to begin preparations for the season with Mississippi State’s High School Team Camp July 22-24. For $275, teams will have the chance to identify team leaders, work with younger players and experiment using different systems of play without the pressure of the season looming.
The Bulldogs wrap the summer camp schedule with the College Prep Camp July 25-27. Cost for the camp is $350 for residential and $300 for commuters. The College Prep Camp exposes players to the demands of a college soccer student-athlete, and it is designed to develop technical and tactical abilities through functional and position-specific training. Campers are also exposed to the speed and agility training used by the Bulldog soccer team.
All campers receive a free T-shirt.
