Tradition of Excellence
The structure of the Indiana Soccer Camp is based upon the foundation Todd Yeagley learned from his father, legendary coach Jerry Yeagley. For over 40 years, Yeagley Soccer Camps have combined the highest quality of soccer instruction with a fun atmosphere that encourages the young player's love of the game. Over the years, countless players who have attended our camps have been heavily recruited, earned scholarships at top universities and have gone on to successful careers in Major League Soccer, the United States National Team, and professional clubs around the world. Todd Yeagley upholds the tradition of providing exceptionally qualified collegiate, club, and scholastic coaches, innovative and challenging training sessions, and a highly organized and well-supervised camp environment. The Indiana University Men's Soccer players also enhance the camp experience with their demonstrations of fine skill and playing ability.
Coach Jerry Yeagley
The NCAA Division I all-time winningest coach and founding father of IU Soccer, Jerry Yeagley, will be present during many camp activities and provide keynote speeches to more mature campers. His content will include a variety of topics, including college talks, player motivation, skill development, and strong student-athlete character. Coach Yeagley's ability to communicate and inspire players to aspire to a career (and life) of integrity and excellence is second to none, and we are thrilled to be able to provide campers with an understanding of his contribution to those who have worn the IU uniform.
Total Player Development
Commitment to excellence on and off the field is the emphasis of the Indiana Soccer Camp. Players are divided into groups by age and ability with low staff-to-camper ratios for concentrated teaching. There is a strong focus on individual skills as well as a dynamic program that advances team tactics. Player creativity is encouraged to maintain a positive attitude toward developing their game. Daily morning sessions include training in techniques such as finishing, passing, dribbling, and ball control, while afternoon sessions concentrate on tactical development with full 11 v 11 matches and tournaments. Daily activities include film sessions as well as a series of lectures and question and answer sessions. Advanced campers will also benefit from the recruiting opportunities offered through our in-camp college recruiting seminar and our network of college coaches who work on staff at Indiana Soccer Camp.
Specialized Goalkeeper Training
The goalkeeper is a key position and will be given specialized training with a well-rounded approach for the tactical, technical and psychological aspects of the position. Training and evaluation will be enhanced as goalkeepers are incorporated into group training activities with the field players. Match-related activities give the goalkeeper the opportunity to combine fundamental skills with tactical decision-making. Off the field learning continues with film sessions and Q&A sessions dedicated specifically to world-class goalkeeping.
