Are you looking for a different soccer experience this summer? Come and check out our summer residential camp, which will feature the staff of the Kent State women's soccer staff.
This two-and-half day camp is designed for U12 though U18 intermediate / advanced players. Head Coach Rob Marinaro and the Kent State women’s soccer staff invite you to join us for a great training experience.  Kent State summer camp is a residential camp for boys ages 11-17 who are seeking an opportunity to elevate their soccer skills to the next level. Our summer residential Camp is geared toward players that are aspiring to play college and high school soccer. Our goal is to improve each players skills and understanding of the game. Players are divided into groups by age and ability with low staff-to-camper ratios for concentrated teaching. There is a strong focus on individual skills as well as a dynamic program that advances team tactics. Player creativity is encouraged to maintain a positive attitude toward developing their game. Daily morning sessions include training in techniques such as finishing, passing, dribbling, and ball control, while afternoon sessions concentrate on tactical development and evening sessions consist of full 11 v 11 matches and tournaments. There is individual goal keeping sessions during the field player sessions.
While at camp, campers will utilize the same facilities as the three-time MAC Champions, the Kent State Golden Flashes. During their stay at summer camp, campers reside and dine in the KSU air-conditioned residence halls to get the full experience of Kent State University with access to our recreational facility. Our meals are catered to provide quality nutritious food for players.
