Each training session during camp is built around training techniques that we run with UCLA players during our season, while at the same time making sure that they are age and skill level specific. Every group of campers will not only have an experienced coach, but each of those coaches is assisted by current college players, giving each camper a unique collegiate experience.
Whether you are already playing on a club team or just getting started, there’s a camp for you. All camps are open to any and all entrants, so long as they meet the camp-specific age requirements. This year UCLA will be hosting five summer camp sessions which include three day camps, one junior elite camp and for the first time ever a College ID Camp. Please read the descriptions below to see what camp is for you. Space is extremely limited so hurry to reserve your spot!
The College ID Camp, ages 14-18, is for girls that are competing on high school varsity or junior varsity teams and clubs, and want to compete at the collegiate level. It is also for the girls that are moving on to high school and getting ready to join their school programs and compete with the best. The camp will utilize both full- and small-sided games, as well as individualized position training. There will also be discussions on college options, academics, and the recruiting process.
The Junior Elite Camp offers a peak at what college life is like, for our younger campers. For girls, ages 9-13, you’ll get a chance to live on campus and see what it’s like to begin your intense soccer training. This camp is for the soccer player that’s starting to get more serious about their game, and wants to develop their skill set as they start to look at playing soccer in high school. The coaching staff will use a lot of the same training techniques that are used for the College I.D. Camp, as we help each player realize their full potential.
The Youth Day Camps are for girls just starting to play soccer, and for those already playing on teams. They are focused on teaching fundamental skills and introducing basic game strategies, in a fun and learning environment. Campers are grouped according to age and ability, and each camper should bring her own soccer ball and a lunch from home. There will be fun daily competitions like "Crazy Hair Day" and "Crazy Shirt Day" as well.

Located in the heart of sunny, Southern California, UCLA is only 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean, and averages 334 sunny days per year. UCLA is recognized as the #1 collegiate athletic powerhouses of the 20th century and into the 21st. The UCLA Bruins won more NCAA titles in the 20th century than any other university and were the first to 100 NCAA titles. Virtually all of the 24 sports in the program compete yearly for NCAA team and individual honors. At UCLA, we recruit the finest student-athletes. Over the past five-plus decades, no school can match UCLA's combination of NCAA team and individual championships, football bowl games, men's basketball NCAA Tournament appearances and Olympic participation. Our student-athletes come from every walk of life and from around the world. Their commitment to excellence makes them Bruins.
In April of 2005, Sports Illustrated On Campus stated:
"UCLA has the most complete athletic program in the country."
