Tom Anagnost’s Hurricane 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.

Tom Anagnost’s Camp … much more than just training …
Tom Anagnost, who has been named the University of Miami’s third head women’s soccer coach, comes to the Hurricanes after spending the last three seasons as the head coach at Central Michigan University. Over the last three seasons, Anagnost was named the Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year twice and led the Chippewas to the back-to-back NCAA Tournament berths.
Whether you are a youth, high school, club, or ODP Player preparing for a successful college career, the Hurricane Soccer Camp will help you realize your goals. The curriculum for both the residential and day camp is demanding yet very enjoyable. Both the beginning and seasoned player will be challenged to their fullest. By the end of the week the players will have been exposed to the commitment and effort it requires to take their game to the next level.
An experienced staff will provide a fun and competitive environment for players of all ages to develop and refine their soccer skills. In 11 v. 11 and small sided competition, players will be coached in tactical situations. Instruction will be given by the University of Miami Coaching Staff and well as other very qualified and professional coaches. All Staff and campers will be housed in the Hecht Residential Dorm, just adjacent to the camp fields.
The University of Miami is a private institution located in the high end Miami suburb of Coral Gables. Miami Soccer has established itself as one of the premier teams across the country. Playing in the top conference in the country (ACC), great weather, palm trees, beaches, and top notch coaching … why wouldn’t you come to Miami?

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.
