Event Description

2020 Boys and Girls Jr. Elite Camp


This program is designed for the up-and-coming dedicated soccer player. Mornings will consist of advanced technical and tactical sessions and will simulate age appropriate soccer sessions. Afternoons will include technical sessions/match play. Our Residential Camp is one of the most popular weekends at Cougar Soccer Camps, seeing players from the entire surrounding club teams in Illinois, Missouri, and other states come and enjoy a great weekend of soccer.

Specialized goalkeeping sessions will be held throughout camp.  Our elite staff of goalkeeper coaches will challenge keepers and provide them with experience to all major technical, tactical, psychological components of the position.  Each goalkeeper will be playing in small-sided and full-sided games. 

Our staff will include both male and female coaches who are current SIUE Men’s and Women’s soccer players and staff members as well as additional outside college coaches and players.
