WALK-UP REGISTRATIONS
Walk-up registrations will be accepted provided your high school team is in camp and/or we have previously discussed placing you with an existing team. Cutoff date for registration is July 22nd. Singles wishing to participate and/or attend a school that is not signed up to take part in camp WILL be allowed and will be placed with our house team, known as Team Bronco.

CAMP FORMAT
Each team will receive one 2½ hour long training session and four 50 minute games against other high school teams. The training session and games will be coached by a staff coach from WMU. Training Sessions will take place on July 22nd & 23rd with the team contact selecting the best time for their school. All teams will play two games wach day on July 24th & 25th. Schedules will be created by the WMU staff. The goal as a staff is to place teams against each other that are at comparable playing levels, and also to play schools from different geographical locations you may not see during your high school schedule.

There will be several collegiate players at the camp. They will be assisting in training sessions and in evaluation of players. Near the end of camp, coaches will get together and select an ALL-STAR team who will compete against the WMU players that are working the camp.

GOALKEEPERS
There will be two goalkeeper specific training sessions offered during the camp training days.

SPEED / AGILITY
Teams participating in the residential option will receive a private session with a strength coach.

TRAINING STAFF
There will be an athletic trainer at ALL scheduled training sessions and games.

LOCATION / FACILITIES
WMU Seelye Indoor Center, Waldo Stadium & WMU Soccer Complex
The camp will be held at the Waldo Stadium, Seelye Indoor Center and the WMU Soccer Complex. Both turf facilities (Waldo and Seelye) were part of a $1.6 million renovation during the summer of 2013, which included brand new turf surfaces to both. Both surfaces are 100% State of the Art! The WMU Soccer Complex has gone through some dramatic changes over the last two years totaling over $1 Million with more to come! The grass surface and drainage was completely replaced in 2013, along with new signage and windscreens, new back nets, enlarged grandstand seating and a new press box. In 2016 we also were able to place a brand new entrance into the soccer complex. This camp will offer your team the unique opportunity to play on BOTH grass and turf surfaces just like you will certainly see during the course of your season.
