2017 Randolph-Macon College Elite Men’s Soccer ID Camp is for both teams and individuals. This camp is for boys rising 9th graders and older.
Campers will have the option to spend the night or sign up for the extended day option. Campers who enroll as individuals will be assigned to a group at registration. The Residential College ID Camp will place a strong emphasis on technique, tactics, and competitive group play. The goal of the camp is to expose participants to multiple college programs, create an environment similar to that of the college pre-season, and prepare players for their upcoming club, high school, or college seasons. Special Goalkeeper training sessions will also be offered. Campers will enjoy top-notch instruction from highly qualified college, high school, and youth coaches.
Just 90 miles south of Washington, DC, and minutes outside of Richmond, Randolph-Macon College is ideally located in the scenic town of Ashland, Virginia — affectionately known as “the Center of the Universe” by those who live here.
Founded in 1830 by the Methodist Church, Virginia statesman John Randolph and North Carolina statesman Nathaniel Macon gave their names to the college. Originally located in Boydton, Virginia, the college moved to Ashland in 1868 to escape the ravages of the Civil War. The move challenged the college’s spirit and stimulated new growth.
