Duke Soccer School for Girls hosts soccer camps for players of all ages and abilities throughout the year in conjunction with Duke women’s soccer and Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. Our goal is to help campers enjoy a positive experience while mastering techniques and tactics that will help them improve as players. We have a proven track record of helping players develop as many of our alumnae have gone on to play at the collegiate and professional levels. Our campers receive individualized attention from our elite coaching staff, which features not only the Duke women’s soccer coaches but also high-level college and club coaches.
