Tigerville, SC (January 22, 2024) Nike has ranked the North Greenville University’s Soccer Camp among the top 10 camps in the nation.

With more than 300 soccer camps across 35 states in the United States, Nike touted the NGU camp’s state-of-the-art facilities, unique and structured curriculum, and position-specific training as reasons for the top-10 selection.

“The camp has continued to grow,” said NGU Women’s Soccer Head Coach Andy Robinson. “We started with one week and we’re going to do three weeks this summer. People that didn’t know about North Greenville are checking us out now.”

Geared for campers ages 10-18, NGU’s Nike soccer camp is designed to develop training sessions to enhance technical skills and tactical awareness.

“We teach them the technical aspects of a skill, and we put them back into the game where they can try it out,” Robinson said. “These are things you can duplicate in your back yard.”

“In the old days, there weren’t a lot of resources. You just went out in the backyard and practiced because you loved it. That’s what we’re trying to move back to,” he said.

According to Nike, the camp has a five-star rating, and will run from June 10-13; June 17-20; and July 15-18 in 2024.

Camp coaches include Robinson, Katie Taylor, and Sayit Mejia Bello.

“We’re here because we love this sport and it gave so much to us, so that’s what we want the camp to emulate,” Robinson said. “Kids are always afraid to make mistakes because they’ll have to run laps or get berated. We just want to create an environment where you’re free to fail. We have great support coaches and lead coaches. It doesn’t have to be miserable to learn, develop, and grow. It can be fun.”
