Spring Prospect Camp
2020 SPRING PROSPECT CAMP
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 20 SCHOOLS IN ATTENDANCE! Space is limited, so register early! Enrollment is open to current high school freshmen and older.
Registration will be limited to the first 124 field players and 16 goalkeepers to register and will be closed after this number is reached.
Goalkeepers need to report PROMPTLY at 9:00 AM for registration and the 45 minute GK specific session starting promptly at 9:15 AM.
