What to bring
Footwear: Molded cleats or turf shoes for grass; indoor soccer shoes or sneakers for turf
Sun screen

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: The main training facility will be the Pingree Girls Varsity field home to the 2013, 2014 and 2015 New England Champs. This is a grass surface. Indoor options are available on campus in the case of severe weather.
