The Elite Girls Academy is designed for girls ages 8-12 that are looking for a competitive training environment. This camp is geared for girls that have participated in club soccer at the academy (U-9, U-10) or competitive (U-11, U-12 select) level, spend time on their own with a ball outside of training, and really have enjoy the sport.

Campers will be taught proper technique and tactical application of technique through small-sided games and contests. Full-day campers will be provided lunch, go swimming, and compete for prizes. All activities are arranged in a fun, safe, and skill appropriate environment. The camp staff will include the Drake women’s soccer coaching staff as well as current and former players.

“Our Elite Girls Academy has developed into a really enjoyable camp.  It attracts committed players that are eager to work hard in the training sessions, compete in the small-sided games, and most importantly have fun getting to know other girls.”
