Penn State Boys Soccer Camps

Dear Parents and Campers,

Thank you for considering our Penn State Soccer Camps. We strive to have the most comprehensive, instructional and fun camp for your son to experience. Our philosophy centers around a commitment to individual development combined with an emphasis on understanding the game of soccer at a higher level. Each camper will have an enjoyable experience that we hope will deepen their love of the sport and motivate them to continue to improve regardless of where they are currently. Parents should know that the camper's safety and welfare are our top priority and that your child will receive professional instruction from a team of outstanding coaches in a safe and inspirational environment.

The Penn State coaching staff is excited for the opportunity to help you improve your performance and achieve your goals. You will have the opportunity to work with the Penn State coaching staff to learn new skills in a fun and competitive environment. Our camp curriculum is based on the same principles of play and many of the same exercises that our Penn State players are exposed to at the NCAA Division I level.

Warm regards,

Jeff Cook
Head Soccer Coach
