Paul Holocher's Cal Poly Elite Camp

Posted on January 10, 2009


Paul Holocher’s Elite Camp… much more than just training …

College Opportunities for Student Athletes magazine, since 1991, written with several hundred college coaches, specifically to help subscribers get to college and on the team … often with full scholarships.

Summer camps are, in our opinion, the best way to get to know the college coach you may some day play for. Coaches use camps to train and evaluate future members of their teams. Summer camps provide an ideal environment for both student athlete and coach to thoroughly prepare and improve the quality of the recruiting decision.

For these important reasons we publish our book, The Best Soccer Camps and dedicate the Spring Edition of our magazine, College Opportunities for Student Athletes to detailed reviews of only 100 summer camp operators, nationwide.

Paul Holocher’s Elite Camp… much more than just training …

Cal Poly’s “Polytechnic” educational approach is world-renowned because it immerses students in a curriculum that combines cutting-edge academics principles with field-specific laboratory study. Unavailable at any other Division I university in America, this unique academic combination ensures our graduates are technically competent, practically trained, well prepared to make an immediate contribution in the workplace or transition seamlessly to graduate school.

Cal Poly is situated in a world-class location: just minutes from many of California’s most beautiful beaches, coastal vineyards, lakes, the Big Sur wilderness and the quaint college town of San Luis Obispo. Cal Poly offers students perhaps the most scenic college location in America. What’s more, due to the area’s moderate climate, training, studying or just relaxing in the outdoors is a year round experience.

With a 6,000 acre main campus, an oceanographic research facility in Avila Beach and a 3,000 acre field laboratory north of Santa Cruz, California, Cal Poly offers students some of the richest and most comprehensive facilities of any campus in the United States.

Cal Poly Soccer is hot commodity on the national map. With a young new coaching staff that brings championship experience and energy to the program, the community has embraced the program with average supporters attendance at the beautiful, Alex G. Spanos stadium surpassing over 2,000 per game. It is truly becoming a soccer players dream school.

Cal Poly will be hosting an Elite Level High School Camp July 16-19th. All of the participants will have the opportunity to work with former professional player and current Men’s soccer head coach Paul Holocher and his Cal Poly staff.

Summer Camps: Much More Than Training

Every camp here has been selected in our Best Soccer Camps book. The current edition of our Best Soccer Camps book contains only 100 selected camps from the more than 500 summer soccer camps.

Is this approach working? When have you seen so many camp ads and articles, anywhere, ever? Think about this. We talk to more serious soccer families and more truly dedicated college coaches, in one year, than anyone. And we help readers find the good camps that can affect their college futures, and their lives.

Now, consider what serious players do for top camps. Competitive players make the camp a success, elevate the level of play, and challenge other players. They stimulate the coaching staff. Everyone learns more and has more fun. And sometimes, a player catches the eye of a coach because, “Those campers were working so hard they looked like college players.” … the rest … perhaps, is history!

Readers refer to our Student Athlete magazine as the “Consumer Reports” of College-Bound sports. We are proud to have earned your respect. When we compile our Special Campers Issues we invite only camps recommended in our Best Camps book to advertise. We’ve done our homework. All of these camps are good!

As parents of serious student athletes, we know how expensive, yet important, good camp selection is. Add the camp’s cost, airfare, new clothes, new equipment, spending money, telephone, ground transportation and family gifts … a residential camp’s cost can total $1000!

What are the alternatives, once you’ve learned how to how play, for getting noticed by the college coaches?

The three most important things to do, to increase your chances of playing sports in college are:

1. Participate in the ODP
2. Win state cup with your club team
3. Attend camp at the college where you hope to play

Camp selection is the only event YOU can control. By the end of the camp, both you and the coach will know if his college is in your future. If the news is not good, ask him to recommend colleges where you can play, and to use him as a reference.
