Train with former professional and collegiate players to learn the techniques and tactics used to play in your position at the Upper90 Position Specific Training Clinic.

Camp Staff
The Upper 90 staff, current and former college and pro soccer players will serve as coaches, group leaders and mentors. Additional college coaches may be added to the staff if numbers necessitate. Certified athletic trainers will be on call 24 hours a day.


What to bring
• Footwear: Molded cleats or turf shoes for grass; indoor soccer shoes or sneakers for turf
• Sun screen
• Bring a water bottle / Water will be provided/snack
• A backpack or small athletic bag to carry items between field sessions
• Soccer ball


All of the training and games are scheduled to take place outside at our soccer fields on the Pingree campus. The surface of the field is natural grass. The majority of our players wear molded cleats on the surface, so that’s what I would suggest to bring. We may also utilize our athletic center on campus, so all campers will need to bring indoor shoes. I’d suggest to also bring tennis shoes as we use the tennis courts often for soccer tennis. Please be sure to bring adequate clothing as well.


In addition to the on field activities, there will be a classroom soccer tactics session, as well as information on the college recruiting process. Campers may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.


Facilities: Glatz and Linus Fields
