Player Experience Camp
AJ Cochran (above) was selected by the Houston Dynamo as the 16th overall pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft
This camp is designed for players and prospects to gain a better understanding of the demands of division 1 college soccer. Our entire Badger Coaching staff will be directly involved in the oversight of the training. The College Player Experience will included sessions about nutrition, including eating a pregame meal, as well as strength and conditioning sessions that will be directed by our current Strength and Conditioning Coach. The day will also include a classroom session devoted to "a day in the life" of a college soccer player as well as two on-field practice/match sessions. This camp is open to any and all male entrants in grades 9-Jr. College.
“This camp gives players a chance to not only showcase their playing abilities for myself and my coaching staff, it also allows them to gain a real understanding of what the life of an elite student-athlete is like.”
