SALEM, ORE. -- The Willamette University women's soccer team will host a girls' elite team camp beginning August 8, 2010. Head Coach Hillary Arthur will direct the camp, with help from her assistant coaches and current Bearcat athletes.

Camp sessions will be held at Willamette University's Sparks Field. This is an evening camp, in the stadium and under the lights. WU Lights offers a unique opportunity for players to train, compete and play under the lights on Sparks Field.

Players will train and compete with their team. The camp will focus on individual and team-based technical and tactical sessions. During the last half hour of camp each day, teams will compete in a round-robin tournament.

High school teams will be accepted to the camp with a minimum of 11 teammates signing up together. Teams signing up with 13 or more players will each receive a $10 discount. The team's coach may provide input and is welcomed to stay during each day of training. Campers will receive a camp t-shirt.

Willamette will host a girls' elite team camp in August.
