TESTIMONIALS

Coach Carlin,
Thank you so much for all your help with camp this year Coach, I appreciate all the effort you put in for me and my experience. I had a great experience and am now in contact with a few schools based on my performance. Best of luck for your tour in Europe, and for the rest of the season! I will be watching you guys as much as possible and Mum will be rooting for you as well.
-4 Days in the life Camper

Dear Coach Carlin,
Thank you for a great camp this year. The camp was fantastic and I had a great time. It made a huge difference to be able to be seen by so many coaches with teammates that I’m comfortable playing with. Not only was it great to showcase for these coaches, but it helped us prepare for our upcoming high school season. We totally felt the experience of being a Villanova Soccer player.
-Team Camper

Dear Coach,
I'm writing to say thank you for holding the college soccer ID camp on October 29th. I appreciate spending time at Nova and for your evaluation of me. I will take time to improve on the areas that I did not receive higher marks. Also, thank you for going over the college soccer recruiting process as it answered many questions I had about it. The rain was a challenge at first but once we were all on the field, I just enjoyed the sport. As a junior, I want to come back to whenever you hold your next camp. Again, thank you for a great experience and a great day of soccer.
-One Day Camper

Coach Carlin,
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all the insight that you gave in your Champion's Mindset talk. I loved to see how passionate you are about the Villanova Soccer program. I also value the great relationship that you have with your team. It is easy to tell that there is a mutual trust you have with your team while maintaining a close relationship. I also got a lot out of your talk and learned a lot about how all the pieces of a championship team (and a champion) fit together.
-Villanova Camper

Dear Coach Carlin,
Your college ID camp was incredibly well organized and a great experience for our camper, and his other teammates from Dubai. Thanks again for your superb hospitality at your campus and camp, you are all first class in every regard. We hope to see you in Dubai soon!
-International Camper

Coach,
What an awesome week. I learned so much from the college coach who worked with my team & learned a lot about myself as I was performing in front of the 75 coaches who watched me play throughout the week. It didn’t always go great for myself on the field but because I am only a freshman, I look forward to coming back next year to your camps to improve upon last year’s performance.
-Nike Showcase Camper

Coach Carlin,
Thank you so much for the opportunity to play in front of so many college coaches. I have been contacted by several coaches after the camp and I want you to know that it was because of your camp.
-Nike Showcase Camper

Coach Carlin,
I really appreciate the extra time that you spent with my son at camp. He has a high interest to play soccer in college but unsure of the level in which he should set his sights. The evaluation and most importantly your conversation with him after seeing him in the all-star game really put things into perspective. He feels much better about the recruiting process going into his junior year and even had a few coaches contact him after the camp.
