Camp Philosophy: The Gustavus Adolphus College Women’s Soccer Summer Camp, run by IN2 Soccer, is designed to provide an environment for players who aspire to improve their skills through advanced player development and exposure to NCAA collegiate coaches. A combination of individual and team focus with an emphasis on speed of play, technical development and improvement of tactical understanding will be at the core of the camp curriculum.
The game is played at optimum speed, which means players are finding themselves with less time on the ball, less time between passes and less time to make quality decisions. This year we will be focusing on becoming adept at controlling the speed of play by teaching the basics, teaching the basics at speed and teaching the basics with both feet.
Each session will focus on accomplishing the following:
- Knowing when to increase tempo and when to slow the game down
- Develop the skill of reading the game, anticipation and rapid, intelligent decision-making
- Embed the art of deception
- Cultivate bi-lateral capability
- College Level coaches and sessions
- Position specific technical and tactical sessions, including goalkeeper specific training
- Evening 11 v. 11 games exploring different formations and tactics each night
- Presentations: Injury Prevention, Nutrition and Diet, Optimal Performance including Strength and Conditioning and fitness testing, College Recruitment Process and how to maximize player exposure
- Player Evaluations upon request
- College players as mentors
What makes the Gustavus High School Girls Soccer Camp different from other camps?
- Each year we expose our campers to new training methodologies that most have never experienced. This year, our directors are taking what they learned in an exclusive series with coaches from the Barcelona Development Academy and implementing it into our camp training.
- There are no other NCAA Division III Institution in Southern Minnesota that is putting such focus and resources behind the development of high school girls soccer players.
College coaches can watch you play for a game or two and provide basic feedback based on your performance, but there is so much more to playing at the collegiate level. The Gustavus Soccer Camp experience provides campers the opportunity to:
- Be personally exposed to a high level of play in drills, small-sided and full field scrimmages
- Increase visibility to collegiate coaches from across the state and take home individual evaluations that can be sent to collegiate coaches during the recruiting process
- Showcase their ability in a variety of activities/environments: technical training, passing patterns, possession drills, position specific training, small-sided games and full field scrimmages (11v11).
- Train with different players from a range of states and teams in addition to being coached by, and receive feedback from, different coaches and counselors each day
- Build relationships with collegiate players who are passionate about youth player development
- Allow campers to be immersed into a residential collegiate soccer experience with fellow campers from across the Midwest who possess similar interests and aspirations of elevating their game to the next level
