Feb. 19, 2013
CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati men’s soccer team has completed another successful season of its College ID Camps. The Bearcats hosted two sessions of camps for prospective student athletes on Jan. 26 and Feb. 16, 2013.
“We are delighted with the success of our ID Camps this year” said head coach Hylton Dayes. “The quality of the players were amongst the best we have seen over the years. As a staff, we were able to identify a number of players who could potentially play at the DI level. Overall, it was a great opportunity for us to expose everyone to the University and our first class facilities”
The camps included athletes, ages 14 years and older, with the intention of being recruited to play college soccer at the highest level. Over 130 participants flocked from as far away as Australia to be coached and tutored by some of the brightest minds in college soccer.
The campers received instruction from the coaches and got to tour the UC athletic facilities. They saw demonstrations on proper strength and conditioning techniques and also participated in field sessions with footwork/agility and speed drills as well as small-sided and full matches to showcase their abilities. Overall, the camps proved a huge success for the Bearcats program.
