Camp Quotes From College Coaches

MESC had a very high level of play and gave me a unique opportunity to coach players in a competitive environment very similar to the college game.
Dave Reyelts, Head Coach, College of St. Scholastica
At college showcase tournaments, I just sit and watch players from afar. At MESC, I get to coach and interact with the players. This is the best way to evaluate if they will be a good fit for my program.
Ryan Raufus, Head Coach, University of Wisconsin – Stout
Midwest Elite Soccer Camp has a higher level of soccer than other camps I’ve seen. I’ve identified many of my top prospects here.
Sean McKuras, Head Coach, University of Wisconsin – River Falls
