WINTER COLLEGE PREP CAMP
Winter College Prep Camp Overview
2017 marks the eleventh year of The Akron Zips College Prep Camp, featuring the staff of The Akron Zips Men's Soccer Team as well as other top college coaches and recruiters from across the country. This three-day event is designed for advanced player development and exposure to some of the nation's top college coaches from all levels of College Soccer. In addition to college coaches, several Zips players will be employed by the camp for demonstration purposes.
The Akron Soccer Staff believes that "the game is the best teacher." The same philosophy will be applied at camp. The focus of all activities will be learning through play. Enrollment in the camp will be extremely limited to allow individual attention for each player from the staff of college coaches. A combination of small sided and 11 vs 11 games will be at the core of the camp curriculum.
Players should plan on being available Friday night beginning at 6:30 pm, all day Saturday and finishing Sunday afternoon by 3:00 pm. After the first session on Friday night, players will be notified as to what schedule they will be on for the rest of the weekend.
The Winter Camp will be held in the state of the art Akron Field House. This facility contains a 120 yard long field turf soccer field. To view images of The Athletic Field House, go online to www.gozips.com.
