College ID Camp General Info Letter
More than 25 coaches from a range of Division I - III schools will be on-site to see you play. Coaches from top Division I soccer programs like Wake Forest, Michigan, North Carolina State, Northeastern and Brown will be there, as will coaches from academically- and athletically-strong Division III schools like Middlebury, Wesleyan, Muhlenberg and Ithaca.
Click HERE to see a list of attending coaches. You will receive a numbered pinny at registration so that attending coaches can easily identify you on the field.
Ray Reid is a four-time National Champion Collegiate Coach and the second active winningest coach at the Division I level. He has coached 27 All-Americans and 111 All-Conference Selections; including the #1 overall MLS Draft Picks in 2014 & 2015: goalkeeper Andre Blake (Philadelphia Union) and striker Cyle Larin (Orlando City FC).
Coach Reid will be at camp all week, directing activities and intersecting with players on and off the field.
Jeff Tipping, former USC (NSCAA) Coaching Director, will act as the camp's technical director, helping to develop the camp curriculum and overseeing training activities so that the college coaches can focus on seeing the players on the field. Players will stay in the heart of the UConn campus in the West Dormitories, eat in UConn's McMahon Hall and play on a range of UConn's extensive playing fields.
We create a challenging training environment, featuring sessions led by college coaches intermixed with 11v11 matches where players can showcase their skills. Aspiring college players will get a chance to experience next level training and competition.

In addition to the on-field training, we offer educational sessions designed to: 1) develop your leadership skills, 2) give you useful information about the college recruiting process, and 3) give you tips to optimize your performance through proper nutrition and hydration. In addition, we offer a College Meet & Greet, at which you can intersect with our attending college coaches off the field.
The Goalkeeper School at the College ID Camp covers the four pillars of goalkeeping: technique, tactics, conditioning, and psychology. Unlike many other camps, goalkeepers at the Ray Reid Soccer School will receive training from current college goalkeeper coaches as well as receiving a personalized evaluation. Each full day of camp, goalkeepers will be challenged in two keeper-specific sessions as well as play in full-sided evening matches.
This national ID Camp runs 4 days and 3 nights – a day longer than many other ID camps. As part of your registration, you receive a personalized evaluation from one of our coaches as well as an adidas uniform set that includes t-shirt, shorts and socks. And, the cost to attend camp is less than many other ID camps.
In short, we offer an outstanding camp value.
Raise your game and learn more about playing at the next level at the College ID Camp held at UConn. This camp session regularly sells out so we encourage you to register early.
