HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The Marshall men’s soccer team announced five upcoming camps in June and July to meet all skill levels and ages on Monday. Each camp will be held at the Veterans Memorial Soccer Complex.
Prospective campers can check out more information as well as register for the camps on the Camps Webpage.
“I’m extremely excited to announce our summer camp schedule,” Head coach Chris Grassie said. “We are aiming to produce, not only one of the most educational soccer camps in the area, but also the most fun.
“We think with our safe and secure location inside Veterans Memorial Soccer complex, we can provide the ideal mix of top class facilities and worry free environment.”
The first camp will be the Men’s Elite ID Camp on June 16. The camp is open to all high school aged boys. The camp is a way for players to have an opportunity to learn about the college game as well as a chance to showcase their skills in front of the Marshall coaching staff.
“For the older players attending our prep and ID camps, we hope to give you a glimpse of how a top program runs and the requirements and skill needed to play and play well at that level,” Coach Grassie said.
Men’s soccer will host two day camps for four days, open to ages 4 to 15. The first is scheduled for June 12-15 and the second will be July 17-20. Both camps will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Parents can drop off the kids and let them play soccer all day with the staff and players in both a fun and educational environment.
“We have a great coaching staff headed by Alex Fatovic, Conor Branson and Pesta Ivanovic,” Coach Grassie said. “All bring phenomenal experience working with young and aspiring soccer players in our community. We aim to educate your young soccer player in the art of the game while making sure they have a fantastic time.”
The High School Team Camp is scheduled for July 21-23, and is open to all middle school and high school aged boys. The all day camp allows for teams to see how to prepare for a season. There will be an emphasis on team building. The camp will closely mirror Marshall’s preseason camp while utilizing top class technology and analytics to help the teams succeed in the fall.
The Goalkeeper Striker Camp will be July 29-30. Another all day camp that is open to ages 9 to 18, campers will join the men’s and women’s soccer programs for the most popular soccer camp in the state. The camp will focus on scoring goals and making saves.
“Our number one responsibility is to grow the passion for this sport in our young people,” Coach Grassie said. “We can only do that if they enjoy it, so that will be our aim.
“All in all, it should be an awesome summer.”
