HSA Summer Elite ID Camp
Females Grades: 9th-College
Location: Western Kentucky University – Bowling Green, KY
Saturday, July 8, 2023 to Sunday, July 9, 2023
This is a great camp for all aspiring field players and goalkeepers who want to improve their overall soccer techniques. Our staff-to-player ratio of 5-to-1, one of the lowest in the camp industry, will ensure that each player receives valuable personalized instruction.
The focus at the Summer Elite ID Camp will be on advanced training and small-sided games to improve the technical aspects of your play. Goalkeepers will experience advanced individual training to improve footwork, angles, shot-stopping ability, diving, distribution, and defensive organization.
Additional activities may include sessions on soccer tactics, team-building, leadership, strength & conditioning, injury prevention, soccer nutrition, college recruiting, or panels about college life. This camp will also feature one bonus virtual session.

Conveniently located right in the middle of campus, the DSU South Lawn will also be utilized for the camp. Indoor facilities across campus will be available in the event of inclement weather.
HSA carefully selects instructors based on their knowledge, expertise, and passion for the game. Current and former WKU soccer players will serve as assistant coaches, group leaders and mentors. Certified athletic trainers and staff will be available to campers 24 hours a day.
Medical staff will be on hand to care for any situation that might arise during camp. In the event of injury, a Certified Athletic Trainer will assess on-site and determine the appropriate care. If additional care is needed (emergency care, x-ray, etc.), your child will be taken to the nearest facility, and you will be notified as soon as possible.
We offer Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. Due at the time of registration in addition to any deposit, Cancellation Protection covers you for a full refund of your base registration fee should you cancel 10 or more days prior to the start of camp. If you cancel within 10 days, the Cancellation Protection entitles you to a transferable camp credit that is valid for up to 2 years from your original camp date.
We strongly encourage the purchase of Cancellation Protection. If you are NOT covered by our Cancellation Protection, all cancellations will incur a processing fee of $100.00 except Half Day Camp participants who will be refunded half of their registration fee. Camp refunds will be processed at the end of the camp season in August.
