The Eastern Kentucky University Women’s Soccer Elite ID Camp is on March 26. EKU and Head Coach Matthew Cosinuke invite all 14 to 18 years old girls who are interested in playing soccer at Eastern Kentucky. The ID Camps provide an opportunity for prospective student-athletes to visit Eastern Kentucky University while showcasing their talents in front of our EKU Women’s Soccer Coaching staff and current EKU Women’s Soccer team members.
During the camp, you will receive elite level instruction from the current EKU coaching staff and have exposure to the complete student-athlete experience. You will train using many of the same methods and facilities that the EKU team uses, interact with the current EKU players and get the opportunity for post camp feedback. Players will train by position and as teams. Training sessions will include dynamic warm-ups, led by our coaching staff and footwork/agility speed training. Topics of play will include speed of play, functional attacking, small sided (5v5, 8v8) and 11v11 matches.
It will be a great venue to assess every attendee’s playing ability. Also, it will be a great start for players who wish to play at the collegiate level. The camp will be a challenging but fun environment. It will develop both the technical and tactical skills of the players. The camp will also provide goalkeeper specific sessions. The university coaching staff and varsity players will handle the sessions and drills.
