    Consistent Motivation

    If you're looking for an intense and educational place to improve your soccer game, the Nike Soccer Camp at Berry College is just that. The coaching staff is excellent, the facilities are great, and everyone involved provided consistent motivation. I have attended other programs in the past, and this is the camp to be at. You will be a better player walking out than you were walking in.

    Grateful Camper

    I wanted to thank you for the camp at Berry this week and I wanted to let you know I enjoyed it a lot. It was very fun to play with people of different levels of skill and to meet many of the campers on my team because without making friends camp wouldn't be camp. I loved the set up each day and after the last day I took a tour of the campus which was awesome. The school is definitely very beautiful and has a lot to offer because of the large campus size and the overall feel of the layout. I could see myself going here in the future if I had the opportunity so I'm glad I got to be a part of everything this week. So again, I wanted to thank you for the camp and for showing possible interest in me as a player.

    Great Camp Experience

    Best Camp I've Ever Attended

    This was the best camp that I have ever attended. I got more out of this camp than any other so far. I can't wait to go again next year!

    Great Instruction!

    I found the drills extremely helpful, particularly the order in which the drills were arranged. I liked starting with drills that helped the skill and then moving it to 1v1 or 2v2 to better apply the skill. This allowed me to be comfortable when I faced full sided scrimmages, I could perform the practiced skill with enough instruction to properly perform.

    — Eddie R., Camper 2014

    Very Helpful

    The camp was great instruction and we loved the evaluation that was given at the end of camp. Very helpful to know what needs to be worked on.

    Thank you!

    I want to thank the entire coaching staff for a great camp experience. This was my first soccer camp and I really enjoyed it. I wanted you to know that I appreciate the time and effort you put into the camp to make us better soccer players. I hope to return next year. Have a great soccer season! Thank you again.

    Better Understanding of Soccer

    This camp has brought a group of boys at all levels to mesh together and learn! The boys went home happy and a deeper understanding of soccer.

    Look Forward to Next Year

    The camp was great I would recommend this camp to everyone. My son is a goalkeeper and really learned a lot on how to improve his technique. The coaches were great and the evaluation that we received at the end of the camp was very informative. We look forward to next year!

    Great Overall Experience

    I would recommend the camp to others. My boys really enjoyed your camp this year. I would let people know that their children/child would be in a safe environment. It will give them hands on experience to improve in the sport and also gives them a little college experience staying on a college campus. It would challenge them mentally and physically. Overall it's a good camp.

    Teaches invaluable skills

    Nike Soccer Camps provide developing soccer players with the invaluable skills needed to excel at the sport. They introduce new skills each day, and then allow the players to interact in games with instruction and coaching to help the player apply those skills in high intensity situations. They give honest evaluations that do not overrate the player, forcing him to continue to improve. They give extra explanation on the evaluation for the player to take home so they will know what areas they need work. The entire Nike soccer camp at Berry College was exceptional. I have, and will continue to highly recommend Berry College as the best soccer camp of all others I have looked into.

    Wonderful experience

    June 23, 2021: We had previously been to Berry so this was our second trip which gave Andrew the ability to be seen again by the coaching staff. There was no particular highlight that stood out because the overall camp was a wonderful experience.

    Improved noticeably

    June 22, 2021: His play improved noticeably and the coaches were serious about their work to improve players' skills. Many other soccer camps he's attended seem to be primarily run by distracted young adults acting as pseudo-coaches.

    First camp experience away from home

    June 21, 2021: This was his first camp experience so it was good to see that he adjusted well to being away from home. It did burn him out a little since he wasn't used to playing soccer for so many hours in a short period of time, but it was good for him.

    — James J. Parent

    Top Notch

    January 14, 2019: My son came to this camp a rookie goalkeeper with some natural talent. He came away a well coached and more confident goalkeeper. The coaches were great, the players were helpful and highly skilled, the other parents were nice. Top notch and highly recommended.

    He loved working on possession and he thought the food was excellent!

    June 17, 2018: Levi felt challenged and inspired. He thought his coaching staff was very skilled and knowledgeable. Levi loved Berry college facility and looks forward to attending next year. He loved working on possession and he thought the food was excellent. His feedback was extremely positive. He only wanted a longer camp experience.

    I really enjoyed working with the player coaches

    June 17, 2018: As an older goalkeeper I learned some small technical skills from the current players and the goalkeeper coach that will help me improve distribution and helping my team possess the ball. I would say the player coaches were a highlight. The current players for Berry College helped coach the campers and were easy to get along with! I would have like to toured the campus a little more at Berry. Maybe adding an optional tour on the last day when there was only a morning session could be a good way of allowing players to get a better feel for the college.

    My sons kept saying how much fun they had

    June 17, 2018: They had a lot of fun- it was very strenuous and hot and they were exhausted at the end but they said they had fun. Well organized checked in, kids had fun, and it was a good facility. They said food was good too :)
