2020 Vassar College Soccer Day Camp (Canceled)
Amidst the ongoing pandemic, and in conjunction with the College and President Bradley, the Vassar Department of Athletics and Physical Education has made the difficult decision to cancel all sport camps. We are sorry for the inconvenience and looking forward to being back next summer. All current registrants will receive a full refund. If anything changes we will reach out to our mailing list.

2020 Vassar College Soccer Day Camp for Beginners (Canceled)
Cost - $140 per week
Two weeks: July 13-17 and July 20-24. Morning Session only 9am - 11:30am
Similar to last year we are offering our regular curriculum for both weeks of our camp. In addition, we will also offer a ‘morning only’ session for our beginning campers during both weeks of camp. Players that attend the full day camp will be placed in instructional groups according to age, ability, and wishes. The camp is directed toward players with club and travel team experience but we can accommodate players that are just starting to develop a love for the game as well. The focus will be the improvement of technical skills, as well as the development of small-sided tactical skills and a large team tactical understanding in a fun and competitive environment.
More specifically, during the morning session the campers work on technical skills and small game tactical improvement with their specific coaches. We also provide numerous water breaks and are cognizant that we can experience very hot weather at this time of the year. Lunch follows the AM session and this is included in the price of the camp and will be provided to each full-day camper (Monday thru Thursday).
Following lunch the campers are transported to Walker Field House where we play a competitive indoor schedule that not only allows the students to play in a supervised competitive environment but also avoids the hottest part of the day. Around 2:15pm the campers are again transported back to Prentiss Fields where we play large sided games and develop a greater understanding of the associated tactical skills. Individual technical competitions at the end of the week provide additional excitement and competition.
Beginning soccer players can attend the Vassar College Soccer Camp by attending the morning session from 9am to 11:30am each day. These students are included in all aspects of the morning session just like the full-day campers.
Finally, it is important to say that we are proud that our coaches are all excellent local/regional coaches that not only understand the competitive side of the game but also recognize the needs of young children as they develop a love and an understanding of the game of soccer.
