Soccer Showcase

The website will be updated weekly with new attendees, the event will feature multiple confirmed college coaches. EXACT has the largest college network in the country, as over 1,000 college coaches from top DI, DII, DIII, and NAIA programs around the country have participated in EXACT's events. Our goal is to give athletes maximum exposure to a broad range of collegiate programs.

50 Coaches Guaranteed

Our "Academic 50" ID Camp is an intensive 3-day non-residential college training camp for rising 8th – 12th graders. The event is geared toward high-achieving student-athletes (3.0+) looking to play college soccer at a strong academic school. As the name "Academic 50" suggests, the camp will feature a coaching staff of 50 college coaches from top academic college programs all over the country.

Over the course of the three days:

Players are equipped with the skills and resources needed, on and off the field, to achieve success on the next level. Personal interaction with college coaches is emphasized from start to finish. Players work with college coaches in training and gameplay, as well as in small group workshops off the field, and they’ll even spend time interacting informally during lunch.

Players also learn from EXACT’s mental training curriculum to develop the mental approach needed for the next level. Off the field, players will participate in sessions on the college recruiting process to learn how the recruiting process works and how to get themselves recruited.

Each player receives a one-on-one evaluation from a college coach at the conclusion of camp, as well as a personal Development Plan to continue growth after camp. Overall, this event is a really great opportunity to build relationships with a ton of coaches, develop your skills as a player, and understand what it is going to take to play at that higher level.

I brought my son to this camp not really knowing what to expect and was concerned about how young he was for the camp, since it appears designed around high school level players. I was surprised by the in-depth amount of information that EXACT provided us regarding how to prepare for the college recruitment process. Without a doubt, we would have missed out on the opportunity to know how the process works and the information you provided was insightful and we have confidence moving forward as our son moves into high school and college beyond.

Great job and we look forward to attending more EXACT camps, as well as introduce my younger son to the camps when the time is right. Thank you!

Through this one day camp, EXACT Soccer has made me realize that my dream is so possible to reach. It's the only camp I've been to, but I was able to meet so many new people who share the same passion as me. I also learned how to elevate my recruiting game to reach my goal much easier.

This was a wonderful opportunity to meet coaches and other players in a completely different format. There is a chance to show individual skills that may not be seen in a regular soccer tournament environment. The interaction with coaches is outstanding and I really feel that I was able to get exposure from EXACT that I would not have anywhere else. Thanks for a great session and options to see so many coaches. I can't wait to see where this opportunity leads me!

I had an amazing experience at EXACT Camp. I enjoyed the opportunity to talk face-to-face with so many coaches from around the country. I also enjoyed the opportunity to train with new coaches. I am looking forward to visiting coaches that I met at their schools and getting to take a closer look at their programs. It was also cool to meet so many fellow athletes from other places and make new friends. Thank you so much for everything!! Thank you!!!

I was surprised to see so many coaches, and having them available to talk to. I wish I would have known about EXACT Sports Elite Camp my junior year. I left feeling like I had personal attention from coaches, and got a better grip on how to navigate the college sports recruitment process.

Great experience meeting coaches, and having the discussion panel with coaches and parents. The games were fun and challenging, which I really enjoyed. Thanks EXACT!

This is the first ID Camp that I have attended and it was a positive experience in every way. The camp was very well organized leading up to the camp with very informative emails and preparation work for the camp. On the day of the camp, registration was well organized and the EXACT team was there to help for every step of the way. Chris was an excellent leader and motivated me from the very beginning. It was amazing to be exposed to real college coaches and to be coached both on and off the field. Getting feedback on the day was very rewarding. I am looking forward to attending EXACT Soccer Academic 50 ID Camp in June/July.

EXACT Sports Camp is a key component to being recruited as an athlete. The camp provides you with an opportunity to meet, interact, and train with college coaches from different schools around the nation from different levels. EXACT Sports provides you with insights into improving your chance of being seen and recruited by college coaches. It was one of the best decisions I made in my recruiting process.

I attended the camp with my son. The information that the EXACT personnel provided was excellent. We are now much more informed regarding the college recruiting and scholarship qualification's. The coaches that mentored the boys were also very knowledgeable, devoted, and fun. The rating that was provided after the camp was very helpful to help guide my son with his future training. The camp helped to boost my son's confidence and love for the game. I cannot say enough about the camp. You guys are the best ! Thanks for your efforts!
