Women's Soccer Announces Summer College Showcase and Non-Residential Academy Program

SAINT LEO, Fla. - Saint Leo University Head Women's Soccer Coach, Ged O'Connor will be hosting the 2013 Summer Academy camp and also the College Showcase Program on the campus of Saint Leo University this coming summer. The week long non- residential camp is open to all soccer players ages 5- 14 (boys and girls).

"The idea of the camp is to get away from the older, more traditional residential camps, and focus on introducing children to the game of soccer in a fun and safe environment," O'Connor said.  "We want to develop the technical skills at as young an age as possible and by getting to work with these players on our campus. We are in a great position to show how fun and exciting the game of soccer can be."

The campus at Saint Leo University is the ideal location to host such a program with all facilities – soccer field, cafeteria, swimming pool, in very close proximity. More details about the camp and an online registration is available at www.sluwsa.com, and the camp will take place the week of June 10- 13. There are full-day, as well as half-day options, and there is also before and after care if needed.

The Showcase ID program is designed to showcase potential college soccer players. Competing against other high school soccer players from around the country, the single day event will allow the player to participate and be evaluated by college coaches, in a college environment. All games will be played on University Soccer Field, Saint Leo University's game field.

In addition, at 2:00 p.m., participants will take part in a Q & A with the college coaches in attendance.

Topics will include:
• Scholarships
• Academic areas of focus
• When/how to start the process
• Playing time
• Academics
• NCAA Clearinghouse/Eligibility

College coaches from throughout Florida are already confirmed in attendance so you will get the opportunity to play in front of NCAA Division I through NJCAA coaches.

"This is an ideal way for the coaches from around the state to get to evaluate AND communicate with potential players in the Q and A session. We have a fantastic facility here that I want to show off to students, but I also want players to enjoy the experience they will have. If they have fun, they will perform better."

The registration fee is $75 per participant and space is limited to the first 100 players.
