Girls soccer camps at IMG Academy feature individualized player development within a team setting, and it is the reason that our soccer alums have gone on to play at some of the top Division I programs in the nation. Players in our girls soccer camps will focus on position-specific drills, participate in strategy sessions and play in competitive scrimmages. We have a proven track record of helping players from middle school to the pros reach their true potential on and off the field through our core training program that includes instruction and competition plus physical conditioning and mental conditioning with our performance specialists. Our elite coaching staff helps every player become the ultimate athlete on the pitch.
Girls Soccer Camp Coaching
Our soccer program is led by Director Rusty Scarborough, former college coach and sixteen-time club state champion, and Technical Director Kevin Hartman, the MLS all-time leader in minutes played for all players, total saves and total wins (goalkeeper). Players will receive position-specific instruction from expert coaches with extensive playing and coaching experience at the collegiate and professional levels both in the U.S. and abroad. Rusty most recently served as Director of Soccer for the Capital Area Soccer League (CASL), one of the nation’s largest youth soccer clubs. There he was responsible for overseeing the work of more than 300 coaches serving 9,000 youth players. During his time with CASL, Rusty also coached eleven state championship teams (eight girls’ teams and three boys’ teams and guided 4 out 5 US Development Academy teams to the National Championship week) and helped place hundreds of players into college soccer programs. Over 32 years of experience, he was fortunate to coach teams to 16 State Championships.
