Nittany Lion Competitive Camp

Penn State's Nittany Lion Competitive Camp is designed for competitive players. The daily schedule for this camp includes games, stick work practices and tactical sessions for offensive and defensive strategies. Individual help sessions and goalkeeping practices also are held. Throughout the camp's instructional programs -- held at outdoor facilities -- the campers receive supervision, encouragement and instruction.

Because individual instruction is emphasized, campers are grouped according to age, ability, experience, maturity and competitive spirit. Each camper plays an equal amount of time in games and staff members are available to give individual attention. Campers from the same school may attend this camp and will practice together throughout the week if their high school coach prefers that arrangement.
