CLEMSON, SC - Clemson Men's Soccer Head Coach Mike Noonan has announced the Clemson Tiger Soccer Camp dates and specifics for 2013.
More information on the camps can be found at www.theclemsontigersoccercamp.com. The camp information phone number is (864) 952-9685.
"Last year, three players that attended our camp were signed by us to attend Clemson this fall," said Clemson Head Coach Mike Noonan. They came to camp and worked hard - we basically discovered them at our camp," said Noonan. "Obviously another reason to come to camp is to improve your game and be noticed by college coaches."
"We are looking forward to another edition of camp sessions this summer," said Noonan. "We give a lot of one-on-one coaching to our campers and it's a good opportunity to learn and improve one's skills."
This year, four different camps will be held for different age and skill levels. Camp information, prices and contact information are as follows:
June 10-13, 2013 - Third Annual Kid's Kickin Camp ($125.00)

A one-of-a-kind experience tailored to the development of the pre-academy level player. The camp will provide the youth player with the specific training needs for their age and ability.

A terrific camp experience for the youth player ready to begin taking the game to the next competitive level. This camp is a residential camp. However, commuters are welcome! *Note Early Bird registration is $485 before April 15, 2013.
July 11-14, 2013 - 8th-12th Grade College Prep and Team Week ($535.00 overnight/$420.00 commuter)
This highly competitive residential week, although intense, provides a positive learning environment for each participant. Small and full-sided matches combined with individual technical and tactical training will challenge each camper to play at a faster pace. Although this camp is not limited to teams, it is a terrific opportunity for a team to receive first-rate instruction by our quality coaching staff.
High School State Championship teams from various states have participated and benefited from this unique environment. A challenging curriculum and cutting edge training methods will enable each athlete to go home with new and improved skills and the motivation to maximize their potential. A unique feature of this camp is a "Futures" panel that will discuss playing opportunities in select clubs, ODP, college and beyond. *Note Early Bird registration is $485 before April 15, 2013
July 26-29, 2013 - 10th-12th Grade Elite Week ($595.00 overnight/$500.00 commuter)
The four day camp will feature applicants who are rising juniors or seniors from around the country and many parts of the world. The camp is geared towards developing the "total" soccer athlete who is committed to performing at the most demanding levels. This training ground will focus on "match playing" between the eight teams in a competitive tournament setting. Each evening there will be an additional All Star game based on your daily performance. Small-sided games and training will supplement the matches with the emphasis being placed on small and large group tactics as well as refining technical skills at pace.
In addition the camp will provide daily seminars covering topics ranging from strength and conditioning for the elite player, the psychology of success, time management skills for the college athlete, short and long term goal setting, positive self motivation and how to succeed in the admissions and recruiting process. There will be a college evaluation for each camper done by our staff and a college recruiting book will be compiled and given to each of our visiting college coaches.
Finally, this is a rigorous "elite" program that does not guarantee a college scholarship or admission to an elite school. It is designed for those who want to compare themselves with the best. The staff will assure that opportunities will be equal but there is no quantifiable equality in playing time or All Star Match appearances. This is up to the sole discretion of the teaching staff.
As part of the application submission, we request a soccer résumé and player recommendation written by a regional, state level or premier club coach. Your application is not complete until such materials are provided. *Note Early Bird registration is $535 before April 15, 2013.
