    Highly Recommend

    I recommend this camp to anyone who really wants to go somewhere with their soccer career. Not only did I make lots of friends and have fun but I learned a lot and got a feeling of what it's like to be a college player.

    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.

    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!

    Thank you!

    "My daughter Shaina had nothing but good things to say about the camp.  The part that I did observe at the end, I could tell that the staff was truly engaged with the girls.  Thank you!"

    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.

    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.
