Angelina College Men Soccer Program Hosting Spring ID Camp


Session Provides Instruction, Recruiting Process Info

The Angelina College men’s soccer program, consistently ranked among the nation’s top junior college programs in the nation the past couple of years, is looking to continue its recent successes on the pitch, and the team is looking for some new Roadrunners to help continue the charge.

The Roadrunners will host an “ID Camp” on Saturday, March 23 at the Larry Phillips Family Sports Complex on the AC campus. The session, scheduled to run from 9 a.m. until noon, includes a campus tour.

The camp is geared toward providing high school students and college transfers the opportunity to train and experience skills evaluation from college coaches while learning more about the recruiting process.

The cost of the session is $50 for online registration, and $75 for in-person registration on the day of the camp.   

 Attendees are asked to bring their own water bottles, soccer balls, shin guards, and soccer cleats.       

The camps’ schedule, registration, and payment information are available online at
