Winter Elite ID Camp

At this time, we are unable to host any Winter ID Camps due to the extension of the NCAA recruiting dead period through May 31st.

The two assistant coaches and head recruiters of the University of Maryland Men’s Soccer Team, Jake Pace and Miles Vaughn, will direct the camp. The Elite ID Camp is designed for high school age players looking to take the next step into the college soccer environment. The cost of camp includes training sessions run by the University of Maryland Soccer Staff and competitive matches (11v11). Campers will compete against other high-level athletes, who are also looking to play at the next level. Also included is a recruiting and informative lecture on college soccer by the UMD coaches.

We have added a GK specific camp with the Winter Elite ID to make sure that goalies get the optimum training while at camp. We will have one of our current GKs at UMD train the GK’s in the morning session before they jump in to goal for the games after the training session.
