RICHMOND, Va. - VCU Head Men's Soccer Coach Dave Giffard has announced the dates for two camps that will be held this summer at Sports Backers Stadium. This year, Rams Soccer Camps will feature the first-ever Functional Skills Camp (July 22-26) and the annual College Prep Camp (Aug. 9-11).

The Functional Skills Camp offers a new and exciting opportunity for soccer players from ages 10-18. The camp offers four, two and a half hour sessions that will place campers into groups based on age and position, providing more individualized instruction.

Meanwhile, the College Prep Camp returns for the fourth year, and offers a unique opportunity to all boys ages 15 and above. The three-day event is designed for advanced player development and exposure to some of the nation's best coaches. Campers should plan on being available Aug. 9 beginning at 5 p.m., all day Saturday, Aug. 10 and until 2 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 11.

In 2012, Giffard guided VCU to 12 victories, the program's most since 2007, and a Top 25 ranking in the final NSCAA Poll. The Rams qualified for the NCAA Tournament and received a national seed for the first time in nearly a decade.
