2019 ELITE SOCCER CAMP
Grambling State University Elite Soccer Camp hosted July 12th-15th on the GSU Campus. This camp offers both overnight and commuter options at a great price. Our Elite camp is conducted by the GSU Coaching Staff, some of the Grambling soccer players and visiting University coaches from the region who drop in to help instruct, evaluate and recruit.
Overnighter campers staying on campus with meals registered by July 3rd cost is $300 per camper and includes three nights of lodging and meals starting at dinner the first day of camp until the conclusion of camp. If attending as part of a group of four or more as an overnighter, the cost drops to $280 per person. Airport pickup and drop off from Monroe airport is available for $60 total. On July 12th pick up will be between 10am to 2pm. And on July 15th when camp ends, flights out of Monroe need to be scheduled between 1:15pm to 630pm. Please contact coach Wagar to ok a time frame that is acceptable for pick up prior to purchasing plane tickets.
Club or high school coaches wanting to have your teams attend, reach out for more info on team pricing.
We put on a highly competitive camp that mixes competition, skill instruction and fun for the campers. These camps are used as a good identification and recruiting tool for our prospects and it gives them a good feel for what it would be like to compete at the Division 1 level as a Lady Tiger someday.
Additional Discount: If attending as part of a group of teammates or friends that has four or more campers, email coach Wagar for the group discount code which will drop the price an additional $20. For example, if you register during the early bird discount period, and attend as part of a group of four or more, then you saved $55 on registration and your total cost for camp is $280. The dorms are shared rooms with another camper of similar age. There is adult supervision in the dorm and a curfew for all campers that is enforced. Campers that violate curfew rules will be dismissed from the camp with no refund.
Optional Add-On Service: Airport pick up and drop off for campers from the Monroe Louisiana airport is $60. That will get you to an from the airport at the start and conclusion of the camp. Pick up will be in groups on the 12th and the 15th. You'll want to aim to arrive on the 12th between 9am to 2pm at the latest so you can make dorm check in. The first session on Friday for camp go's from 4pm to 7pm that day. Departing on the 15th needs to be after 1:15pm to 6pm so that each camper will have enough time to catch their plane when camp ends after the morning session.

If these dates do not work for your team, please email regarding satellite camp options which can be run for teams within a reasonable driving distance (60 miles) from campus where our staff comes to put on a camp for your school. We run a quality camp and teach teams and players skills that improve their play including how to work together to be successful. Coach Wagar has trained six high school teams who have made their respective state championship game the summer prior to the championship year when their team trained. Four of those camp teams went on to win the state title. We would love the opportunity to work with your high school or club team as well.
“We place our campers in a competitive skill instruction and situation environment that helps teach the skills we expect college players to learn and be able to perform in college someday. These soccer specific skills include four forms of shooting, 1 vs 1 defending technique, post up move series, dribble move series, box organization and framing, combination play build up and execution. Implementing these attributes has helped my teams to be competitive for championships nearly every year."
