Bulldog Soccer Camps 2017 ID is designed for players who aspire to play at the college level. Training and playing will take place in Docking Stadium.
At Adrian College we look to accomplish two main aspects at our College ID Camp. We will put you in a training session environment. This training session will be intense, and educational. We want to give you a taste of what it is like to be a part of a training session here at Adrian. We will use the same exercises that are used in training with our team. We will also give you an opportunity to play in a number of full sided games. This will give us an opportunity to evaluate your skills in a game environment. This is the same excellent facility that current bulldog players call home. We will use a variety of training topics throughout the camp. In the full sided games, match tactics will be emphasized by a staff of top collegiate coaches from around the Midwest.
Founded on the philosophy of Asa Mahan, Adrian College retains its identity as a private, co-educational college of liberal arts and sciences related to the United Methodist church. But that doesn’t mean that it hasn’t developed into a recognized leader in the area of education. Today’s campus consists of just over 100 acres, over 20 academic and service buildings and 11 residence halls, plus apartments and themed housing. We’ve recognized the fast paced, evolving face of education- while maintaining our identity.
