Tennessee soccer will host two day camps from June 2-6 that will be open to boys and girls.

Tennessee head coach Brian Pensky will lead both camps with assistance from an experienced soccer staff comprised of coaches and current UT soccer players. The day camps are designed to enhance each player's technical soccer abilities in a fun and safe environment with camp staffers helping campers improve their skills both individually and in small groups.
From June 12-15, Pensky and his Tennessee staff will host an Overnight Camp at Regal Soccer Stadium that will be open to both boys and girls ages 9-16. The price is $525 for residential campers and $425 for commuters. Check-in will be from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. on June 12 and check-out is at noon on June 15. This camp is designed specifically for ages 9-16, a crucial developmental period for establishing proper technique and tactical understanding of the game. This camp will refine a player's technical training, specifically 1 v 1 skills and ball possession, while teaching combination play, small group tactics and the principles of team play. Advanced concepts of team play and the responsibilities of the player's functional position are also covered in the camp along with fitness training, nutrition and game preparation components.

A staff that includes former professional goalkeepers and collegiate All-Americans will lead campers through a rigorous four-day, 10-session training camp in the confines of the University of Tennessee's multi-million dollar Regal Soccer Stadium.
Tennessee will host an Elite ID Residential Camp from July-19-22 at Regal Soccer Stadium for high school girls ranging from ninth grade to 12th grade. The price is $425 per player.
