with special guest coach Ashleigh Carpentier
This summer the Portage Soccer Club will host two-time Olympic gold medal winner Lindsay Tarpley for a three-day girls-only training camp, July 18-20, 2016. The camp will run from 9am-12pm each morning for players in the U8-U12 age range, born in the years 2005 to 2008.
Tarpley earned 125 caps for the U.S. Women's National Team from 2003-2011 and scored 32 goals, putting her among the top-15 all-time goal scorers in U.S. history. Lindsay was voted ESPN RISE Player of the Decade (2000’s) for her extraordinary successes throughout high school, college and her youth national teams and in college was voted 2003 National Player of the Year. The former Portage Central High School star and Portage Soccer Club alumna made her first national team when she was 13 years old. She's thrilled to be back again this summer with players from Portage Soccer Club and local community.
Tarpley will be joined at the camp by Ashleigh Carpentier, a fellow Portage Soccer Club alumna. Carpentier played soccer at the Division I level at Western Michigan University all 4 years and was honored with the privilege to be a captain her senior year. Since then Carpentier has been coaching youth soccer ages six to eighteen.
The camp, open to U8-U12 players of all skill levels born in the years 2008 to 2005, will consist of a three-day training experience with personal attention from Lindsay. Each session is limited to 40 campers, so please register early. Each session will include warm-ups, technical work, functional skills, a scrimmage and an LTS Talk, in which Lindsay will address important elements that she believes helped her accomplish her dreams and have sustained success at the highest level.
Camp fees include daily 3-hour training sessions with Tarpley at the Portage Soccer Complex on July 18, 19, and 20. Campers will receive a t-shirt and other giveaways. Fees for current Portage Soccer Club players is $170, and cost for non-Portage Soccer Club players is $185. Please register using the PayPal forms below.
