In conjunction with our Residential Academy we will also have the College Prep/ID Camp. The College Prep/ID camp will be for girls ages 14-18. The camp will feature all of the normal amenities of residential camp but also provide exposure to college coaches from all around Texas and the US with the ability to play nightly games watched and coached by the college coaches on staff. The SMU Soccer Academy employs many college soccer coaches who can answer any questions the players may have during the week. The SMU College Prep/ID camp will provide the player unique insight into the recruiting process, what coaches look for in recruitable players and a glimpse into the day to day life of a college soccer athlete.
The SMU Girls Soccer Camp is one of the premier soccer camps in the United States. Coach Petrucelli and his dedicated staff of coaches have designed a top quality program for girls who have a strong desire to improve upon their understanding of the game and abilities as soccer players. The SMU campus and fields provide a one of a kind environment where players will participate in a challenging but fun week of soccer instruction. Players will be broken into small groups based on age and skill level to ensure campers receive the most individual attention possible. During the morning sessions, we will teach, correctly demonstrate and rehearse the skills needed to improve the player's technique. Individual creativity is encouraged in order to develop confidence and a more positive attitude toward the game of soccer. The afternoon session emphasizes tactical development in a game environment using small-sided activities. The evenings consist of nightly tournaments with full-sided games where the players are able to demonstrate the techniques and tactics learned during the day. At the SMU Soccer Camp, we strive to teach the campers not just skills, but the knowledge of how to use those skills in the game.
