2017 Elite College Kelley Guth Women’s Soccer ID Camp is design for boys and girls 12-19 ages in Morgan Brothers soccer complex at Clarksville.
The players will be challenged physically, technically, tactically and mentally throughout the camp. We strive to create an environment that will demand the best of each player and challenge them to elevate their game level. We have developed a camp curriculum that will challenge every player as we demonstrate and apply very competitive and demanding technical, tactical and functional sessions.
The camp will be led by Head Coach Kelley Guth and her staff. The campers will receive instruction and feedback on how to best prepare for transition to the collegiate level. Our camp structure will also provide opportunity to game experience through small sided and full sided matches where they can apply the technical and tactical components of the game in a high pressure and highly competitive environment. Goalkeeper specific instruction and training sessions will be provided at every ID camp for all goalkeepers who enroll.

Who was Austin Peay?
He was Tennessee Governor Austin Peay…a favorite son of Clarksville. Gov. Peay signed a law establishing Austin Peay Normal School on April 26, 1927. That is why APSU’s mascot is the “Governors.”
