All campers receive morning instruction on technical and/or tactical topics from Limestone College coaches and players. These topics are then reinforced during small sided games and age appropriate matches in the late morning and afternoon (for full day campers). Campers will be divided by age group and/or skill level.  Groups will be limited to 10-15 campers per group/coach, whenever possible. At the end of the week, each player will receive a personalized evaluation from his/her staff coach.  Please take a moment to look at our schedule and join us for this great opportunity to work with the staff and players of the Ten-Time Conference Carolinas Champions & Eight-Time NCAA Tournament Qualifying Limestone College Saints!
