Meet Camp Coaches

Lloyd Fobi
Camp Director

Lloyd Fobi

Lloyd Fobi recently completed his second year as the head coach of the Willamette University men’s soccer team. Prior to arriving at Willamette, Fobi was an assistant men’s soccer coach at nearby Corban University for a year and a half. He also has been a coach with the Oregon Olympic Development Program.

Read Full Bio

Under Fobi's guidance, the Bearcats have achieved a 16-16-4 overall record and a 12-13-3 record in Northwest Conference play: the best two-year record for Willamette men's soccer since 2000-2001. 

In 2012, Willamette earned a 10-7-2 overall record, including 7-5-2 (4th place) in the NWC, for the Bearcats' first winning season since 2000. Highlighting the year were a 3-2 overtime win over then-undefeated, 10th ranked Whitworth University, and a second consecutive season sweep of archrival Linfield College.

As a college player, Fobi competed for the Oregon State University in Corvallis, Ore. He played on two teams that were nationally ranked (2003, 2005) and helped the Beavers qualify for the NCAA Tournament in 2003. Fobi hopes to continue the progress Willamette has made in recent years, while adding his own approach to the game. He also has coached with the Oregon Olympic Development Program.

Became a more enthusiastic player

My son's week at camp taught him that he is not a position player - you need to be able to play where you are needed or best suited for that match.  He came home a happier, even more enthusiastic player who is looking forward to returning next year!

Glimpse of playing in college

If you are looking into playing for college, this gives you a taste of what it might look like, not to mention the coach gets to have a look at you firsthand.

Amazing camp

This camp was amazing. Our son had never been to a sleep away camp before, and was a little hesitant. By the first night, he called and asked if he could return next year! He even has half of his soccer team back home wanting to come next year.

Rewarding experience

This is the second year that we participated in this camp; both have been very rewarding experiences.  The instructors are professional, but approachable to all campers.  The coaches will push your player to levels that they can achieve, but think that they can not.

Rounding out players

Work well at rounding out the player - teaching them it is not a specific skill or position, but playing the "game" on a whole!  Attitudes were great - Son absolutely loved it & was ready to go back prior to checking out!

Great Theory Work

"I liked the way my son was able to have classroom instructional time that gave players a chance to watch soccer matches and see techniques and strategies used by other players. It's nice to mix the theory with the actual game."
