Christian College ID Camp
Jun 19, 2015 to Jun 20, 2015
The purpose of the Christian College ID Camp is twofold. First and foremost the camp is meant to provide rising juniors and seniors with the opportunity to train at a high level. Second, it is meant to bring together individuals who seek to play at a Christian institution with Christian college coaches.
Christian Colleges in Attendance: Cairn University (PA), Covenant College (GA), Eastern Mennonite University (VA), Eastern Nazarene College (MA), Geneva College (PA), Gordon College (MA), Grove City College (PA), Houghton College (NY), Lancaster Bible College (PA), and Messiah College (PA).
College coaches will be observing the training sessions and will be provided with contact information so they can follow up with players after camp. NCAA regulations does not allow for coaches to talk with players about their specific college during the camp, but there will be a panel of college coaches Friday evening to discuss the recruiting process.
Field Player Training:The camp seeks to expose the players to in-depth technical and tactical training that is specific to the Messiah College men' soccer program. Campers will be assigned to a team of 12-14 players and will train and play 11v11 with that group the entire camp. The Head Camp Coaches are either on the Messiah men' soccer coaching staff or are an alum of Messiah's program.
Goalkeeper Training: We offer an excellent goalkeeper training section as part of our Christian College ID Camp. They train exclusively as goalkeepers for the training sessions and then are assigned a field for the evening sessions.
In addition to Christian college coaches evaluating players, each player will receive an assessment filled out by his Messiah camp coach that evaluates the player's ability in the following areas: possession, technical ability, attacking, defending, and attitude.

Falcons Win 10th NCAA Title!
San Antonio, TX - Messiah College men's soccer earned their 10th NCAA Division III National Championship by way of a double-overtime golden goal from Jeremy Payne. Payne put through the game-winner off a low serve from Joshua Wood in the 104th of play to send Messiah to the 2-1 win over Rutgers-Camden.
The win for the Falcons secured not only their 10th title in 10 National Final appearances, but also their second-straight and fifth in the past six seasons. Saturday's final was their second over that span that finished in overtime (2010) with one other decided in penalty kicks (2008).
