2019 CLEAT SOCCER CAMP INFO
JULY 22-26, 2019
We are busy planning the 2019 CLEAT Soccer Camp. We are excited about some new changes for this year’s camp. This week long camp is really two camps in one. The morning camp is for players entering Kindergarten this fall through the 6th grade and is for the developing soccer players. The new College Prep camp in the afternoon is for advanced players with previous soccer experience and ability in the 7th-12th grade. The instruction for the camp is overseen by Coach Likius Hafeni, from Corban University in Salem Oregon. He is assisted by select players from the Corban University men’s and women’s soccer teams along with other local coaches/college players. It is our desire to help developing soccer players at all levels to learn new techniques, refine ball skills, step up their game, build character and of course, have fun.
The camp is held on the sports fields directly in front of Marcus Whitman Jr. High School. Each player will receive a shirt and ball. The College Prep camp will also include individual player assessments, for those interested. Coach Hafeni will also be offering a College Prep training session for interested parents on the ins and outs from a recruiters perspective. Please see the list below for additional required and optional items. We are looking forward to seeing your soccer player at CLEAT camp this summer.
College Prep Advanced Camp
A couple years ago we began to explore taking advantage of the college coach and players by offering an advanced camp. The core focus of the afternoon program is built around a college level practice, drills, instruction and scrimmages. Coach Hafeni interactively works with the players to “coach them up” on specific techniques, positions and skills. This outstanding opportunity will challenge those advanced players that are desiring to play at a higher level. Coach’s positive approach will identify the players strengths and offer suggestions on areas that they can improve. He will also be available as a resource for parents interested in the “in’s and out’s” of college recruiting and related questions. This is a very unique opportunity for players to develop a mindset of playing at a higher level and also providing resources for those players entertaining playing soccer beyond their current select and high school programs. There is also an opportunity for those involved in the afternoon program to give back by participating in the AM program as assistant coaches.
