The Soccer Lab | July ID Clinic


The one-day and two-day identification centers are for prospective male college players (High School grades 9-12) looking for an elite "Little Ivy" and NESCAC education coupled with a high level soccer experience.  Campers will be offered technical sessions, tactical sessions and game action where they will have the opportunity to be seen by Bates staff and other college coaches.  Bates College players identified at past camps include 2018 All-NESCAC midfielder Peder Bakken (Seattle, WA) and 2017 All-NESCAC striker Nathan Merchant (Los Angeles, CA).  Other former attendees have gone on to play at the D3, D2, D1 and professional levels.
