The second annual U.S. PARMA College I.D. Camp started Monday and is in full swing. Each day a different college coach comes in to work with the players on a specific field topic. Coach Heather Barclay of Queens College (D2) started things off with a session built around the ball skills of passing, receiving and finishing. Coach Dave Farmer of FDU-Madison (D3) worked on defending on Tuesday while Coach Katie Feehan of New Jersey City University (D3) will introduce possession in the middle third of the field Wednesday. Coach Jim Moore of Georgian Court (D2) wraps up the week Thursday with finishing.
At the end of each session the guest college coach holds a brief question and answer discussion with the players about college soccer and the recruiting process. We are grateful to each of these coaches for coming to work with our players, and we're excited to now have this camp as part of our U15-U18 program. U.S. PARMA president Phil Iuliano said, "Thanks to the players who were able to participate and thanks to the College Coaches for the work and instruction provided. The curriculum, exposure, insight, and discussions were top notch. Looking forward to hosting the camp again next year."
