The B.E.S.T. clinics provide an opportunity for prospective student-athletes to visit the University of Cincinnati while showcasing their talents in front of our UC Women’s Soccer Coaching staff and current UC Women’s Soccer team members.
During the camp, you will receive elite level instruction from the current UC coaching staff, interact in an informational session lead by Head Coach, Neil Stafford discussing the college recruiting process, and receive a Cincinnati Soccer T-shirt. You will train using many of the same methods and facilities that the Cincinnati teams use, interact with the current UC players, and have exposure to the complete student-athlete experience. Players will train by position and as teams. Goalkeepers will receive specialized training and all campers will have the opportunity to play in a full game setting. Training sessions will include dynamic warm-ups, led by our coaching staff and footwork/agility speed training. Topics of play will include speed of play, functional attacking, small sided (5v5, 8v8) and 11v11 matches.
The ID clinics will be held on the campus of the University of Cincinnati. We anticipate spaces to fill up fast so please register ASAP to be assured a spot. Over each of the past three years of the B.E.S.T. Elite ID Clinic, players have been identified and gone on to become a part of our UC Women’s Soccer Program.
Full-Day Camp: The objective of this program is to develop each camper into a more skillful soccer player while promoting a fun atmosphere. Players of all levels will improve skills through dynamic activities and games in a stimulating environment. Groups will be organized by age and ability for all coaching sessions during the camp. There will be both men and women's staff members coaching during both weeks of camp to help be role models to all of the boys and girls at camp. This camp’s main emphasis will be learning through FUN. All campers will be taught the fundamental skills of the game such as passing & receiving, shooting, heading (safely!), and dribbling skills.
Half-Day Camp: This camp’s main emphasis will be learning through FUN. All campers will be taught the fundamental skills of the game along with basic team shapes. Skill development, fun and enthusiasm are encouraged throughout the week!
