NOTE: Players are welcome to sign up for any or all of the camps. There is no limit.
We will NOT be providing housing accommodations for this camp and would suggest players plan to stay with their families in local hotels (or at home).
Each camp will have a total capacity of 30 (4 GK's and 26 field players).
Our one day camp model is an immersive look into Westmont and our soccer culture and program. Over 80% of our current Westmont Men’s team have attended one of our ID camps in the past.
This camp is open for any rising freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior in high school that is interested in Westmont and wants a chance to spend some time here on campus with the Westmont soccer team and be trained by our coaching staff. Younger players are allowed on a case-by-case basis.
Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email. Then, you will receive another email from the coaching staff about one week in advance with final schedule information, camp waiver, etc...
We look forward to welcoming you to our camp!
The Westmont Men's Coaching Staff
Johnny Whallon/ Camp Director
Johnny Whallon is looking forward to directing the 2022 Summer One Day Prospect Camps. An experienced camp director, Whallon has helped run over 25 camps during his 10 years at Westmont.
He has also worked at a number of the top college soccer summer camps in the country, including UCLA, University of Washington, Georgetown University, and the University of Notre Dame. Asked about the value of the prospect camp model, Whallon said, "I firmly believe that these camps experiences are the BEST possible way for a recruit to get to know the DNA of Westmont Soccer. For one day, the recruit becomes a college player here at Westmont and gets to see the ins and outs of our program. There is no better way to get ready for the next level than to immerse yourself in it and soak it all in. We want every camper to have a GREAT experience here during their visit."

What should a camper bring with them to camp? You will receive an email from the Westmont Coach staff about one week prior to the start of camp—which will included a detailed camp schedule and a recommended list of things to bring.
What happens if my child is injured or sick during camp? Qualified trainers will be available on campus for the duration of all camps to care for minor injuries and illness. Parents or guardians will be contacted immediately if there is a serious injury or a child needs to leave camp early for a medical reason. Campers will receive a medical waiver via email about a week before camp and will be expected to bring it to registration.
