Butler To Hold Soccer Prep Camp

The Butler University men’s soccer program will hold a College Prep Camp on Friday and Saturday, March 12-13.  The camp for high school boys will be hosted on the Butler campus.

The Butler Soccer Prep Camp gives players an opportunity to train and play in an environment that resembles the college soccer experience. Many of the current Butler players and incoming recruits have participated in the College Prep Camp.  There are limited spaces available for this camp and it is limited to high school age players.

The objective for this camp is to afford the committed soccer player the opportunity to be trained and evaluated by the Butler coaching staff in a college training environment. It also allows players that are interested in Butler as their college choice to see Butler's campus and meet the coaching staff. The camp is set up as a day camp and does not include food or accommodations. We can however make hotel suggestions should they be needed.
 
The camp will begin on March 12 with check-in at 5:30 p.m.  There will be an evening session Friday, starting at 6 p.m., and two sessions on Saturday, with the camp concluding at 3:00 p.m. The cost for this camp will be $150.00. The camp staff will consist of the Butler University Men’s Soccer coaching staff, as well as other elite level coaches. For registration and information go to www.butlerboyssoccercamp.com or email Assistant Coach David Costa at dcosta@butler.edu with any questions.

Butler is coming off one of the most successful men's soccer seasons in school history.   The Bulldogs posted a 14-3-2 record, won the Horizon League Championship, and earned a “Top 25” national ranking.  Butler was the #12 overall seed in the 2009 NCAA Tournament.  Over the past two years, Butler has compiled a 27-6-6 record, which ranks among the best marks in all of college soccer.
