The Lake Forest College Men’s Soccer Prospect Camp is for high school soccer players who want to learn what it takes to be part of a nationally competitive soccer program at a top-tier liberal arts college.
What to Expect
Camp training sessions, conducted by the Forester Men’s Soccer coaching staff, replicate the daily training environment and the mental and physical demands of the current Lake Forest College players. The Forester Men’s Soccer team plays a possession-oriented, dominant brand of soccer that dictates both offensively and defensively. Players will leave with a solid understanding of the Forester Men’s Soccer style of play, program philosophy and what the coaching staff looks for in a potential student-athlete.
The Forester Men’s Soccer Prospect Camp also previews other aspects of college life at Lake Forest. Participants will tour campus, explore the facilities, eat a meal in the dining hall, hear from the admissions and financial aid staff, and talk with current members of the soccer team and coaching staff. Participants will be well informed of all aspects of the college recruiting and decision process.
