DAVIS, Calif. - The UC Davis men's soccer program and head coach Dwayne Shaffer will offer both youth and age 14+ Individual Development soccer camps on campus this summer.
Registration is available online at www.ucdavissportscamps.com/menssoccer. Both camps include a UC Davis men's soccer t-shirt. Campers should bring a snack and/or lunch, water bottle, sunscreen and appropriate soccer apparel.
The ID clinics are open for all boys ages 14-and-up. There are four sessions available - June 29, June 30, Aug. 3 and Aug. 4. Each session, which runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., costs $135 individually, but campers can sign up for back-to-back sessions for $195.
The ID clinics provide an excellent opportunity for campers to develop skills in a competitive environment while receiving a high level of soccer training from the UC Davis men's soccer coaching staff and players. The clinic curriculum includes individual instruction, drills and full-field 11 vs. 11 matches for personal evaluation in a team setting. The training schedule is designed to prepare players to compete at the college level.
"We have been holding ID clinics for a long time at UC Davis," said Shaffer, in his 16th season with the Aggies. "It's always been a great way for players to get a look at our program, refine some skils and compare themselves against some of the best players in the region."
The youth camp, open for players ages 5-12, will be held from June 24-28 and run from 9 a.m. to noon each day. The cost of the youth camp is $150.
Both UC Davis men's soccer coaches and players will help with individual player development, both technical and tactical, through age appropriate drills in a fun environment.
"Our youth camp is an exciting way for players in the area to learn from Div. I college players and coaches," Shaffer added.
