CINCINNATI - The University of Cincinnati men's soccer team announced the dates of its three summer camps on Friday. The Goalkeeping ID camp, Elite camp and two sessions of day camp will all take place in June or July 2013.

Registration for each of the camps is now open at

"We are looking forward to our 13th year of the Cincinnati Soccer Academy summer camps" said head coach Hylton Dayes. "The camps will cover all levels from youth to prospective college players."

The Goalkeeper ID camp, held June 15, 2013, is designed to broaden the skill of goalkeepers and is opened to boys ages 13 and older. Participants will take park in field sessions dealing with dynamic movements in warm-ups, footwork/agility, shot stopping, positioning, and distribution. They will also analyze goalkeeping video in the team video room. The camp will be held on campus on the new state-of-the-art turf facility.

The Elite camp will run July 12-14 and is open to boys ages 14 and older who are considering playing college soccer and are looking to improve their game. The camp identifies both technical and tactical aspects of the game through discussions, college and professional player demonstrations, coaching sessions, small-sided games and full-field competition. In addition to field instruction, the camp will also feature a lecture series including topics such as strength training, speed and agility exercises, sports psychology and the college recruiting process.

"The Elite Camp is the center piece of the CSA and we expect the level of play to be even higher than our very successful winter ID Camps" said Dayes.

There will be two sessions of Day and Half Day camps, one running from June 17-21 and the second from July 8-12. These camps are opened to boys and girls ages 7-16 and are designed to develop the campers into more skillful soccer players. The participants will improve skills through dynamic activities and games in a stimulating environment. Players of all skill levels are welcome and groups will be organized by age, gender and ability.

"The youth camps are always fun and will focus on skill development and small sided games" added Dayes.

The Cincinnati Soccer Academy is entering its 13th year of summer camps at the University of Cincinnati. Over 300 players a year have participated in the CSA camps throughout its history.
