All registrations must be received by 12:00 AM E.S.T. on Saturday, November 30th. Registration will be limited to the first 124 field players and 16 goalkeepers to register and will be closed after this number is reached.

Campers will enjoy a full day in a collegiate training environment, a WMU Soccer t-shirt, and the opportunity to play in front of college coaches from around the region. College coaches from other institutions ranging from Division 1-3 and NAIA will be present, so each player will get multiple looks from multiple coaches from all levels of college soccer. Last year at this camp there were 15 SCHOOLS IN ATTENDANCE! Space is limited, so register early!

Goalkeepers need to report PROMPTLY at 11:00 AM for registration and the 45 minute GK specific session starting promptly at 11:15 AM.

WMU Seelye Indoor Center & Waldo Stadium
The camp will be held at both the Seelye Indoor Center and Waldo Stadium. Both facilities were part of a $1.6 Million renovation during the summer of 2013, which included brand new turf surfaces to both. Both surfaces are 100% State of the Art!

  • Prospects need to bring adequate training apparel: a ball, shinguards, and a pair of firm ground cleats and/or turf cleats (training surface is Field Turf).
  • Camp will be held both inside of our indoor facility (the Seelye Center) and outside on the football field in Waldo Stadium.

There will be an athletic trainer at ALL scheduled training sessions and games.

Travel, lodging, and meal/lunch arrangements are the sole responsibility of each camper.

Parking is available in the lot in front of the Seelye Center (Lot 7) located off of Stadium Drive. Overflow parking will be in LOT 10 just behind the press box at Waldo Stadium.

If a player is forced to pull out of the camp for medical or other reasons, a FULL refund (minus a 6% processing fee) will be granted to the player if notification is given by Saturday, November 16th. If players do not withdraw before Saturday, November 16th, a $60 processing fee will be withheld from the refund. If the camp is cancelled due to inclement weather, the closest alternative date to the original camp date will be arranged and the camp will resume as planned on the new date.
