U of Wisconsin Soccer Academies for Boys… 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.

U of Wisconsin Soccer Academies for Boys … much more than just training …
As one of the nation’s most productive institutions of higher education, The University of Wisconsin is dedicated to the support of academic freedom.
At Wisconsin, students find a complete spectrum of liberal arts studies, professional programs and student activities. Wisconsin annually ranks among the top educational institutions in the country and has earned a place among the world’s elite institutions of higher education.
The city of Madison is rated as a Top 10 “Best Places to Live” in the country and Sports Illustrated has recognized Madison as “The #1 College Sports Town” in America.
The standard set for academic achievement at Wisconsin has been emulated by the Badger Soccer Program.
Head coach John Trask and the University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team have announced Wisconsin’s first-ever Center of Excellence training program. The six-week program for youth players is open to all entrants and will provide high-level winter training.
Coach Trask and his staff look forward to returning Wisconsin Soccer to a national level of prominence where it won a National Championship in 1995.
The Elite Soccer Academy provides players of all levels with advanced activities and playing opportunities that can be used to take their game to new heights. The Academy features a staff of coaches who have the experience and dedication necessary to help your development on and off the field.

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.
