The Jr/Sr Advanced Camp at Houghton College is designed to be a high level teaching and training camp for any high school student entering his junior or senior year.

The camp is designed to provide a soccer experience similar to what they would encounter at the collegiate level. The primary method of training during the camp will be in the 11v11 format in order to teach the necessary technical and tactical requirements of the 4-3-3 system of play. At the end of the camp, each player will receive an assessment filled out by his coach that evaluates the player's ability in the following areas: possession, technical ability, scoring and attacking, defending, and attitude.
