Midwest Elite Soccer Camp is for serious high school female athletes with aspirations to play soccer at the collegiate level.

Our coaching staff for Midwest Elite Soccer Camp at University of Wisconsin – River Falls solely consists of current college coaches. They will coach you like a member of their college team. And our counselors are all current collegiate soccer players. They are available to help you and give you insight into the life of a college soccer player!

Below are the schedules for our 2017 camps.  They will show you a day in the life of an MESC camper.  Our 2018 camp schedules will be posted in late May/early June and will be quite similar!

The Midwest Elite Soccer Camp Format


Each player will be placed on a camp team. Each team will be assigned a college coach to train and prepare them for daily games and the end of week championship. Each coach will train his/her team as if they were preparing their own college team for a championship game. The practice sessions will have have college level intensity and the games will have collegiate competitiveness.


Every day, teams will play in 7 vs. 7 games. The small-sided games allow more opportunities for players to touch the ball and showcase their skills! These games are a mini-tournament leading up to the championship games on the last morning of camp.


At the request of the campers and college coaches from our inaugural camp in 2011, we added nightly 11 vs. 11 games for all future camps. These full-sided games give players the opportunity to perform and showcase themselves in true game-like situations.


MESC Advanced GK training is provided by current collegiate coaches. The training sessions teach advanced goalkeeping techniques and prepare high school goalkeepers for the next step in their career.  2017 GK training was provided by Michelle Voiland (Oregon State University – DI), Karli Kopietz (North Dakota State University – DI), Ileana Moschos (Florida State University – DI), and Nikita Rivera (University of Southern Mississippi – DI).


All players at MESC have the opportunity to be seen by all of the college coaches over the course of the week, allowing players to be evaluated by multiple coaches, not just the coach assigned to their team. Each player will receive a colored, numbered pinnie that will make them easily identifiable by the college coaches. At the end of camp, every player will receive a written & verbal evaluation by the college coach in charge of her team.
