Colorado College Soccer Mens ID Camp

06/16/2018 ~ Saturday Registration Ends: 06/16/2018$150.00 | Colorado College-Washburn Field (Turf) Colorado Springs, CO

Description

The Colorado College men's soccer identification camp is designed to provide prospective student-athletes the opportunity to play in front of the men's soccer staff and offer serious candidates a hands-on campus experience.

 

In addition to a training session and full/small-sided games, campers will take a campus tour, attend an admissions information session, enjoy a meal in our outstanding dining hall, tour our sparkling new athletics complex, and participate in a Q&A session with the coaching staff and current players.

 

With picturesque Pikes Peak in the background, players will be put through a typical Colorado College training session and will be assessed by the men's soccer staff. Sessions will be directed by Head Coach Scott Palguta. Palguta brings a wealth of professional and Division I playing experience to CC. A former Major League Soccer player and Cornell University graduate, Coach Palguta recently completed his third year at the helm of the CC men's soccer program. Prior to joining CC for the 2013 season as an assistant coach, Palguta played four seasons as a defender with the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer. He signed with Colorado in 2009 and was part of the 2010 team that won the MLS Cup. Under Palguta's guidance the Tigers have been ranked as high as #14 nationally and have compiled a 41-10-9 record (.758 win percentage).  Palguta has coached 5 USC All-Americans and 8 Academic All-Americans in his short time at CC.
