COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina women’s soccer coach Shelley Smith has announced that her staff will conduct three summer soccer camps this year. The staff will offer a Day Camp, two levels of Skills Camps and an Identification & Advanced Skills Camp this summer to help facilitate mental and physical growth in the development of soccer skills.

The Day Camp for Girls will be held June 22-26 for girls ages 5-12. Two options for the Day Camp will be available: a Half Day Camp (ages 5-12) and a Full Day Camp (ages 8-12). In these camps, players will be grouped by both age and skill level so that each child is challenged but not overwhelmed.

Level I (Jr.) and Level II Skills Camps will be held Friday, June 26 through Sunday, June 28. The Jr. Level I Skills Camp (Grades 5-8 as of Fall 2009) is set up to provide the high level youth player the opportunity to train in a competitive environment and is geared for those aspiring to be selected for club and state teams. The Level II Skills Camp (Grades 9-12) will focus on reining campers’ technical and tactical abilities.

The Identification & Advanced Skills Camp (Grades 9-12) will be held July 22-25 (Wednesday-Saturday). The goal of the camp is to stimulate a top collegiate training environment and is geared for soccer players looking to play at the collegiate level.

Those interested in participating will be able to register online at Additional information will become available by the end of January. Early registration discounts for all camps end April 1.
