Camp Info
This camp and all demonstrations are run by Paul Snape, Butler University Head Men’s Soccer Coach, and his staff.

The curriculum is based on developing a player’s technical skill & tactical understanding through structured functional training. We believe players do not spend enough time mastering their own skill set, but with this camp we pay careful attention to the “SPECIFIC RESPONSIBILITIES” each player encounters during the game. We have designed a program that allows the player extra time to focus on improving his technical and tactical skills, and then apply it into small group play and eventually into an 8v8 format. This camp is for the committed soccer player who has the determination, dedication, and desire to play at the next level!

The Butler Soccer Camp Coaching staff is made up of highly respected and qualified college coaches, club coaches, high school coaches as well as some of Butler’s current varsity players. The coaches are known for the quality of their teaching, enthusiasm & passion for the game. All activities are carefully supervised.
