Camp Philosophy: The Gustavus Adolphus College Women’s Soccer Summer Camp, run by IN2 Soccer, is designed to provide an environment for players who aspire to improve their skills through advanced player development and exposure to NCAA collegiate coaches. A combination of individual and team focus with an emphasis on speed of play, technical development and improvement of tactical understanding will be at the core of the camp curriculum.
High school soccer players preparing to take their game to the next level, whether that be college, varsity, JV, premier or C1 club, both on and off the field will benefit from this camp. Through quality position based coaching, college level sessions and evening matches utilizing different formations, participants will be prepared to succeed at the next level, whether that be C1 or Premier club, high school varsity or college. Daily presentations focus on college recruiting, diet and nutrition, optimal performance, and injury prevention and recovery.

What makes the Gustavus High School Girls Soccer Camp different from other camps?
Each year we expose our campers to new training methodologies that most have never experienced. This year, our directors are taking what they learned in an exclusive series with coaches from the Barcelona Development Academy and implementing it into our camp training.
There are no other NCAA Division III Institution in Southern Minnesota that is putting such focus and resources behind the development of high school girls soccer players.
College coaches can watch you play for a game or two and provide basic feedback based on your performance, but there is so much more to playing at the collegiate level. The Gustavus Soccer Camp experience provides campers the opportunity to:
Be personally exposed to a high level of play in drills, small-sided and full field scrimmages
Increase visibility to collegiate coaches from across the state and take home individual evaluations that can be sent to collegiate coaches during the recruiting process
Showcase their ability in a variety of activities/environments: technical training, passing patterns, possession drills, position specific training, small-sided games and full field scrimmages (11v11).
Train with different players from a range of states and teams in addition to being coached by, and receive feedback from, different coaches and counselors each day
Build relationships with collegiate players who are passionate about youth player development
Allow campers to be immersed into a residential collegiate soccer experience with fellow campers from across the Midwest who possess similar interests and aspirations of elevating their game to the next level
