August ID Camp


Camp Overview

The Buffalo State Women’s Soccer ID Camp is designed to provide all of our prospects and recruits the opportunity to experience first hand what it might be like to attend and play college soccer for the Bengals! That means players will work directly with the coaching staff, play on Coyer Field, utilize the Varsity Weight Room and sleep overnight in the new stateof-the-art Residence Hall (STAC). Upon completion of the camp it is our intention that you will have a clear understanding of Buffalo State, our program and our training methods. You will, unquestionably, leave with an outstanding college soccer experience.

Camp Philosophy

Our camp methodology will mirror our college sessions by using small-sided games. These games promote quick thinking in game situations and create a learning environment with maximum exposure on the ball under pressure. Many of our games will be finishing and goal-scoring games to provide enjoyment and a challenging and competitative environment. We will even  employ our specialized technical warm ups using the Brazilian “Classic” training ball.
