    EVANSTON, Ill. – Spend your summer with the defending Big Ten Champions at the Northwestern Boys Soccer Academy! The Northwestern men’s soccer team has four different camps scheduled throughout June and July for varying ages and skill levels. Camp participants will receive training from Big Ten Coach of the Year Tim Lenahan, and his coaching staff, along with members of the 2011 Big Ten Championship team.

    The Northwestern Boys Soccer Academy offers personalized instruction from qualified, highly experienced college coaches and players, along with camp partners, Coerver Coaching. The camps are designed for young male athletes, both field players and goalkeepers, to train in a positive learning environment. The camps utilize individual, small group and team settings to help improve individual skill level, passion for the game and teamwork.

    The College Soccer Training Center (CSTC) is one of the summer camp options. This session runs July 19-22 and provides a college-like environment while being trained by some of the nation’s top coaches. Previous coaches to attend have come from Division I programs such as South Carolina, Villanova, Yale, Colgate, Iona, DePaul, Loyola, IUPUI, Xavier, Lafayette, among others. In addition, top academic Division II and III programs like University of Chicago, Missouri S+T, Amherst, North Central, Illinois Wesleyan and Stevens Tech have all used the CSTC as a primary recruiting tool.

    “We employ coaches from various levels of Division I, II and III so players get the opportunity to be seen by college recruiters,” Northwestern head coach Tim Lenahan said. “While most of the players who have played at Northwestern have attended the camp like All-Americans Dave Roth and Mark Blades, we are able to get a number of players exposure to other programs and coaches through our camp and our evaluation process. Each college coach leaves camp with a list of potential recruits. While not every player may be able to come to Northwestern, we certainly use the camp as an important part of our recruiting process as does every college coach who attends the camp.”
