Vassar Women’s Soccer Elite ID Camp is designed for those female high school soccer players who aspire to play at the college level. Participants will be coached in a team-like environment with two practice sessions a day and a daily opportunity to play a full-sided match. While we will train the technical aspects of the game (passing, shooting, dribbling, etc.) our main focus is to challenge players to think more analytically about the game of soccer. The biggest difference in the game at the college level is that coaches expect players not only to make a good decision, but also to make the best decision and to do it as quickly as possible. Our job is to push you past your previous comfort level to create an environment that will expose you to the demands of the college game. Vassar head coach, Laura Williamson, and assistant coach, Pam Monnier, will coach all participants throughout the session. In addition, current Vassar Women’s Soccer student-athletes will assist in training and coaching. Participants will stay in the dormitories on the Vassar College campus in Poughkeepsie, NY located in the beautiful Hudson Valley. All meals are included in the cost of camp as well as a training shirt.
