The Penguins Soccer Identification camp is designed to provide players with an NCAA Division One training experience. Field players and goalkeepers will be trained by the Youngstown State University Soccer staff and be exposed to a training atmosphere that is distinctly unique to the YSU Penguins Soccer program. Our Identification Clinic will emphasize the technical, psychological, fitness and tactical understanding necessary to prepare you to play at a higher level of soccer and for the challenges of collegiate soccer.

Penguins Soccer Camps and Clinics are open to any and all entrants, limited only by space, age and grade level.

Our field player program imitates training and expectations players will need if considering a college soccer career. Field players are trained in the proper techniques for shooting, heading, dribbling, passing and defending. They are then put into highly competitive 1v1, 4v4, and 11v11 games to develop these techniques under pressure.


  • 1v1 attacking & defending
  • Creating numbers up situations
  • Speed of play
  • Combination play
  • Becoming a better goal scorer


Don’t worry ‘keepers, we haven’t forgotten about you!  Our objective is to create a training environment that challenges all levels of goalkeeping. There will be both a technical and tactical emphasis to the program that will cover shot stopping, footwork, hand positioning, fitness, diving, handling crosses and corner kicks and more. Technical training will be accompanied by game-related, competitive goalkeeping activities and games. Training time periods will be allotted for goalkeeper specific training, and then goalkeepers will join the field players for finishing exercises, small-sided games and full-sided games in order to apply concepts to live game situations.


  • Reading the game
  • Organizing the defense
  • Dead ball situations
  • Communication
  • Staying connected to the team
