The University of West Virginia is currently ranked number 1 in the country. The programs continued success over many years makes this event one of the best in the country. The camp attracts soccer players from all over the continent for top level competition in a professional environment, all while trying to catch the eye of coach Izzo.
The four day camp focuses on advanced technical skill sets as well as game adaptations and exposure to life at the Division 1 collegiate level. Players are required to participate in multiple training sessions each day, stay in University dorms and eat at University cafeterias making the experience a small glimpse of what pre-season at the next level might look and feel like. Staff coach Theophilus Egbele who was responsible for conducting Milton’s players training for the week said, “all in the MYSC family should be very proud of the players who participated, there are some future college players from that team if their development and growth continues without a set back,” which is exactly what MYSC staff have known all along.
“Exposure to events like this one are integral to the development of our players both as athletes and young adults. Players gain a new perspective on the sport and the dream of playing the game after Graduation from our youth clubs program becomes that much closer” says MYSC Director of Coaching Justin Vassallo.
The Competitive player pathway at MYSC ensures that all players participate in highly regarded events, including top level tournament play in Canada, the USA and Europe. To compete against the best in various countries allows us to prove to our players that continuing their growth and development through our high level programs allows them to be the best and achieve their goals.
