Women's Soccer Joins Forces To Host Summer Camps
MACON, Ga. – New Mercer women’s soccer head coach Tony Economopoulos recently announced the summer slate of the 2012 Mercer University Soccer Camps.
This year Economopoulos will join forces with Mercer men’s head coach Brad Ruzzo to work and staff four different camps spread over the months of June and July.
Three of the four sessions will be in Macon and one in Warner Robins, for area youths of all ages. All camps in Macon will take place in the month of June, while the lone Warner Robins camp is reserved for mid-July.
The three camps slated to take place in Macon are held at Bear Field on the campus of Mercer University. The first camp is designed for Junior Bears (ages 7-14) and Mini-Bears (ages 4-6) and is set for June 11-15. The June 11-15 camp is a day session program, with the Mini-Bears Camp running from 9-11 a.m. and the Junior Bears Camp lasting from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. All Mini-Bears and Junior Bears camps are open for both boys and girls to attend.
The other camp designed for Mini-Bears and Junior Bears will take place in Warner Robins from July 9-13. The training session times will remain the same as that of the Macon camp for both Mini-Bears and Junior Bears.
The other two camps slated for Macon are Elite Level preparatory camps that help high school and junior college players get ready for the rigors and speed of Division I soccer. The first of the two Elite camps will take place on June 16 at Bear Field for high school-aged and junior college boys only. The girls Elite Level preparatory camp will also be open to high school-aged and junior college players on June 23 at Bear Field.
Both Elite Level camps are a full day of training, with camp times slated from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The two Elite Level camps are designed for the serious soccer player and will allow Ruzzo, Economopoulos and their staff to help give them a better gauge of what he/she needs to improve upon on before considering the college game.
