Parent Development Seminar Component It is imperative that the parents are educated on all the factors that go into being a student athlete and what it takes to be successful at the highest level. NIKE Premier ID Camp has developed a one of a kind program for the parent! In a partnership with the NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) upon check in and after the opening ceremony parents are invited, at NO ADDITIONAL COST, to attend a three hour educational event. Topics that will be presented and discussed include:
• Admissions Presentation and process given by Elmhurst College Staff
• Financial Aid Presentation by Elmhurst College Staff
• Recruiting Process information provided by a National Recruiting Service
• Elite player qualifications moving forward / what to expect in the college game
• Club Soccer: differences between regular, academy, and elite clubs
Upon completion of the 3 hour class each parent will receive a Special Topics Diploma through the NSCAA! Refreshments will be served throughout the course.
These days players need to be “students of the game” and this requires them to learn in the classroom much like traditional academics. At NIKE Premier ID Camp we understand what it takes to train the players mentally. This is what truly prepares them for college soccer and beyond! The players will learn:
• How to analyze a game from watching and on video through “Match Analysis Training.”
• Perform a match analysis at a professional soccer match
• Tactics of the game through theory and comprehension
• Video analysis
• Drawing of plays and formations using whiteboards
A unique experience to say the least! Current college players from the major programs being represented attendbreakfast with our campers. They share their college soccer experiences both athletically and academically. Breakfast is catered, and the experience includes a high level guest speaker from the soccer world! This person shares what it takes to be successful in all aspects of their young lives
