LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The University of Louisville women's soccer program will host the 2010 Winter Elite Academy on Feb. 7, 2010.
About the Winter Elite Academy
It is a one day camp designed to give high school aged soccer players a day long experience in the life of a high level Division I soccer player at the University of Louisville. Players will take part in the same types of training sessions that Cardinals soccer players see day in and day out during their college career, working in a hands on environment directly with the Louisville Soccer Coaching Staff. They will take part in a strength and conditioning workout run by the Louisville Sports Performance Staff for Louisville Soccer, as well as learning the importance of injury prevention and nutrition to performance. Players will meet with Athletics Compliance Staff to learn the rules and regulations surrounding the recruiting process and the admissions process to ensure they understand the steps they need to take to be eligible to play soccer at the Division I level. In one day they will experience nearly every facet of the world of a Division I soccer player. The camp will be held in the new Trager Center, a full field indoor Field Turf facility adjacent to Papa John's Cardinal Football Stadium.
