The ASU staff and several other area college coaches (TBA) will be on hand to evaluate players.  Each camp will have a goalkeeper specific training element where the keepers will work with our goalkeeper coach, Dan Louisignau. Off the field, emphasis will be placed  on informing the players about the college recruiting process and what it takes to reach the next level.  One third of our roster comes from the ID camps, including 75% of the 2019 recruiting class.

Not even sure where to start with my thank you for this past weekend. This is the second year now that my son and a handful of his teammates have attended App State's soccer camp. The App State coaches and players that make soccer an absolute joy for these boys. Words cannot express our gratitude for making the game fun and bringing out the best in our boys. We were told on numerous occasions that App State's camp was their favorite by far and they all plan to be back next year for sure. That says a lot coming from a group of opinionated boys who have been to their fair share of soccer camps :)

 -Julie Salbinski Schwarzenegger

My teams have been attending this camp for the past five years and every year it gets better. Appalachian State Boys Soccer camp is a perfect mixture of environment, facilities, and professional coaching. I highly endorse this camp and recommend any coach who wishes to enhance his teams play as well as increasing individual skill to attend the Appalachian State Boys Soccer Camp.

-Ken Kirsch, Head Coach, Nease High School. 2007 and 2008 Florida State Champs

My GK coach was very thorough and could show me how to do things properly. He's the best GK coach I've had.
-Bryan Newbold, 16, Smoky Mtn. HS, Sylva, NC

App. Soccer Camp was a great leaning experience for my team. Our coach was great, and he showed us a lot. The camp really brought us together as a team and made us much better.
-Jennifer Dillard, Coach, Concord HS (NC)

Our coach worked with us on our communication and our mental game. We got better every day. I'll be back next year.
-Chris Hartle, 15, '88 North Meck Red, Huntersville, NC

Dear Coach, We want to thank you for providing such a conducive learning environment for our team at this year's camp - the coaching was thorough and structured but flexible to incorporate our team's needs - The facilities were excellent and the cool summer weather and the mountain scenery was particularly nice for us - We would like to recommend the camp to other teams and individuals of all levels.
-Ken Kirsch and Richard Stupple, Coaches, Lake Mary Prep HS (FL)

The camp is tailored to the specific needs of each team. The best technical camp we have attended in 10 years of going to them. Coaching staff is genuinely interested in everyone improving skills and knowledge of the game.
-Coach Kevin Hicks, Dixon HS, Jacksonville, NC (NC Class 1A State Finalists in 2003)
