Coach Donigan takes great pride in attending each day of camp to instruct and share his philosophies of the game with the campers.
The Rutgers coaching staff, college coaches on all levels, former professional coaches and players as well as current collegiate players will conduct each training session throughout the program. Campers enhance their game by working on technical skill development as well as offensive and defensive principles of the game. Evening sessions will be centered on competition and full sided matches.

The College ID camp is ideal for players who have aspirations of playing soccer at the collegiate level. The College ID Camp is open to boys ages 14-18 years old.
This camp is a great opportunity for an aspiring student athlete to get an up close look at what it takes to be a collegiate soccer player. All campers will participate in 3 on-field training sessions as well as a college discussion with some of the region's top college coaches. The main focus of the College ID camp is for players to showcase their talents and gain knowledge of the landscape of college soccer.
College coaches from various levels (Divisions I, II, III, and Junior College) are invited to attend each training session and campers are encouraged to invite any coaches they have been in contact with.
Camp will be held in The Rutgers Indoor Practice and Conditioning Facility, commonly referred to as “the Bubble,” located across from High Point Solutions Stadium on the Busch Campus. "The Bubble" is the nation’s largest air-supported indoor structure. It has a FieldTurf surface.
On-field, campers will experience competitive games and realistic college training sessions ran by the Rutgers men's soccer staff. Off of the field, campers will attend a college discussion that will cover the topics of recruiting, student athlete-life and academics.
