WHAT TO BRING TO THE JUNE 5Day/4Night RESIDENTIAL/COMMUTER TRAINING CAMP, ACADEMY EXPERIENCE CAMP, & THE NC STATE ELITE ID CAMP


Attending one of our residential/commuter camps this summer will benefit any soccer player who is looking to improve their game. It is an experience unlike any other which will change your life on and off the field. However, to make the most of your camp experience, you need to be fully prepared. Here are some tips that will help:

 

Be Physically Prepared
Try to go into camp in your best physical condition. Every moment at camp is a valuable learning experience. You want to be able to seize every opportunity to practice and learn. We all know that our ability to pay attention decreases when we are tired; our ability to train with a pulled muscle is reduced. The bottom line is that to take full advantage of everything that is offered at camp you must be in good physical shape.

 

Bring The Right Equipment
Bringing the right equipment is crucial to having a successful camp experience. Of course you will need to bring your usual training gear; jersey, shorts, socks, shin guards and shoes. However, there are plenty of other things to think about.
