2017 CLEAT SOCCER CAMP
JULY 17-21, 2017
It is time for the Annual CLEAT Soccer Camp. This week long camp is really two camps in one. The morning camp for players entering Kindergarten this fall through the 6th grade are for the developing soccer players. The new College Prep camp in the afternoon if for advanced players with previous soccer experience and ability in the 7th-12th grade. The instruction for the camp is overseen by Coach Josh Murton, the Men’s Coach from Ohio Christian University. He is assisted by select players from the Ohio Christian University men’s and women’s soccer team 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 Murton 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 OCU team and Coach Josh’s expertise by offering an advanced camp. The core focus of the afternoon program is built around a college level practice, drills, instruction and scrimmages. Coach Murton interactive 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. This year we will be adding the component of a personal player evaluation by Coach Murton for those players and parents interested. Josh’s positive approach will identify the players strengths and offer suggestions on areas that they can improve. He is also planning a parent meeting with interested parents to go over the “in’s and out’s” of college recruiting and to answer any questions. This is a very unique opportunity for those 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.
