Overview

This camp's focus is on improving skills and decision making so expect lots of touches and idea planting. Each player will be evaluated and grouped according to their skill level and will be moved daily based on their performance. We believe the game is the best teacher so we will be playing and competing a lot. We will also have some chalk sessions to instruct players on how to see the game.

The showcase camp also provides high school players with a way to learn more about WUSTL and the soccer program and the chance to be evaluated as a prospect.
