The Day Camp is open to players of all levels and specializes in technique and skill development. The Day Camp is sure to be a fun and unique experience.It runs Monday through Friday 9:00 am – noon.



COLLEGE SOCCER Many of our older campers have aspirations to play soccer at the collegiate level. At the SMU Soccer Academy, we try to assist these players by giving them as much insight into the recruiting process as we can. A representative from the Sports Source College Soccer Recruiting Guide will come one evening and speak to all of the older players attending camp. This presentation is highly informative to the prospective student-athlete. The presentation is open to all parents and will conclude with a question and answer segment. Finally, the SMU Soccer Academy employs many college soccer coaches who can answer any questions the players may have during the week.



ACADEMY RESIDENTIAL CAMP The SMU Women's Soccer Academy is one of the premier soccer camps in the United States. Coach Brent Erwin and his dedicated staff of coaches will provide an opportunity to better understand the game of soccer. This program is designed for girls who have a strong desire to improve their abilities as soccer players. Located on the campus and fields at SMU, players will participate in a challenging but fun week of soccer instruction. Once at the SMU Academy, players will be broken into small groups based on age and skill level. This allows every player to improve more quickly as well as receive more individual attention. During the morning sessions, we will teach and correctly demonstrate the skills needed to improve the player's individual technique. Individual creativity is encouraged among our campers in order to develop confidence and a more positive attitude toward the game of soccer. The afternoon session concentrates on tactical development using small-sided games that will allow the players to learn in a game environment. The evenings at SMU consist of nightly tournaments with full-sided games. During these games, the players are able to demonstrate the technique and tactics learned during the day. At the SMU Soccer Academy, we strive to teach the campers the skills that they need to improve along with how to use those skills in the game. Teams are welcome at the camp. You may register together, and we will make sure they stay together with the same coach throughout the week. Parents are welcome to all evening sessions. *There is a $25 discount for groups with 9 or more players.



GOALKEEPER PROGRAM In a difficult game, a good goalkeeper can make the difference between winning and losing. The SMU Goalkeeper Camp provides young goalkeepers of all levels a challenging program that will drive them to excel. Designed by SMU Head Coach and noted goalkeeping clinician Brent Erwin, the SMU Goalkeeping School is widely recognized as one of the premier Goalkeeper training programs in the country. The morning sessions will consist of detailed training in modern goalkeeping techniques. Such topics include catching, diving, breakaways, crosses and footwork. The afternoon sessions will focus on the fundamental tactics of goalkeeping such as positioning, distribution and communication. In the evening, the goalkeepers will join the field players to compete in tournament games where they will be allowed to demonstrate what they have learned. At the end of the week, each goalkeeper will be given a goalkeeper evaluation that will provide feedback on how they can improve. At the SMU Academy, goalkeepers can be confident they are getting the highest level of training possible.
