Dave Di Tomasso
Camp Director

Dave Di Tomasso

In 2004, Dave Di Tomasso became the head coach of Elmhurst College's brand new men's soccer team. Di Tomasso needed little time to turn the program into a winner, guiding the Bluejays to an impressive 12-7-1 record and a trip to the CCIW Tournament in its first year as a varsity sport.

Seven years later, the Bluejays' ascent up the ranks of college soccer has been nothing short of impressive. In 2009, Di Tomasso led Elmhurst to its first-ever CCIW Championship and its first-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament. The Bluejays finished the season with a 13-4-4 overall record and posted an undefeated conference record of 5-0-2.

In 2013 Coach Tomasso was named Coach of the Year after finishing 11-4-3, good for 2nd in the conference, with only 1 true senior on the field.

In 2010, Di Tomasso guided Elmhurst to a 10-8 overall record with Brehm, Warren, and McMahon all earning all-conference honors.

Di Tomasso has compiled a 76-48-13 record in seven seasons as the Bluejays' head coach. His teams have won 10 games or more in six of his seven seasons and have qualified for the CCIW Tournament four times. He has coached 26 all-conference players, six all-region honorees, and two CCIW Players of the Year.

Before taking the reigns of the men's team, Di Tomasso spent six seasons as the head coach of Elmhurst's women's soccer team. He continues to rank as the College's all-time winningest coach in women's soccer after compiling a 68-45-6 record in six seasons. Sixteen of Di Tomasso's players earned all-conference honors and Tasha Shepard became the first Elmhurst women's soccer player to earn All-America recognition.

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 Elite 150 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:

Classroom Training
These days players need to be “students of the game” and this requires them to learn in the classroom much like traditional academics. At Elite 150 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

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

Outstanding

The Nike Elite 150 Camp at Elmhurst this past summer was an outstanding experience for our daughter.  She got to work with some outstanding coaches from all levels of college coaching.  They gave her great feedback and advice for pursuing her goal of playing college soccer.  In our minds this camp was a key for building confidence and knowledge about soccer at a higher level. She came away from camp with a confident attitude that helped her as she approached the ODP Regional  Tournament and Region II camp last July, and now the national training camp.  That is a great group of coaches that work that Nike Camp at Elmhurst.  I hope they continue to provide that experience for young ladies.

Educational Experience!

I would like to thank you and all the staff for providing a fun and productive soccer experience for the girls!  My daughter has sent me several updates about all the fantastic things she is learning at camp, I cannot wait to hear more.  In addition, the parent course on Friday was very informative as we begin to navigate and evaluate college soccer opportunities in the next couple of years, very much appreciated!

My daughter came home exhausted but excited. The camp was challenging, the coaching was great and she felt like she came away from the camp having learned a lot.

Good mix of mental and physical components

I really enjoyed my experience at Elmhurst College. Coaches were very encouraging, informative, and interactive, both on the field and in the classroom. I thought it was a really good mix between the mental and physical aspects of the game, and a good mix between being challenged and having fun. I walked away feeling very accomplished.
