Prospect Camps Men's Soccer
UPDATE 7/14/21: Our registration for our camps is now closed. Please email: email@example.com, if you are still interested to attend- and we will check to see if we have any last minute availability. Thank you.
We are pleased to announce that Westmont Soccer will be hosting two one day ID camps this summer on Saturday, July 17 and Sunday, July 18. Both camps will identical in format, and include multiple training sessions and team presentations and a lunch meal over the course of a full day.
We will release more specific details upon registration regarding camp schedule in the near future.
Players are invited to come to one or both of these camps. We will NOT be providing housing accommodations this summer (as of now) and would suggest players plan to stay with their families in local hotels (or at home). (Note: we are looking into the possibility of having some dorm rooms on campus accessible to stay in, for an extra price. Please email us, if interested in this option.)
Each camp will have a total capacity of 30 (4 GK's and 26 field players).
Our summer camp 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.
We look forward to welcoming you to our camp!

Head Coach: Dave Wolf
Dave Wolf has been at the helm of the Westmont Men's Soccer program since 1991. He has won over 300 games in his time here at Westmont—and is the winningest coach in Westmont men’s soccer history. Fresh off a resurgent last couple seasons where the Warriors have won 4 GSAC Championships in the last five years, Wolf is looking forward to directing this year's camps again.
Asked to describe himself as a coach, Wolf replied, "The phrase that I would most associate with myself is ‘motivation through affirmation.’ This isn’t because I am trying to be a good guy. The greatest joy I get in coaching is that I enjoy believing in people. I love getting behind people, telling them they can do the job we are asking them to do. I love encouraging, being positive. There are times to say hard things and be direct. But who I am is on the side of saying, ‘We can do this. You have the quality to accomplish this. I am going to believe in you all the way to the final whistle.’"
A graduate of Wheaton (Ill.), where he is a member of the Athletic Hall of Honor, Wolf helped lead the Thunder to a NCAA Division III National Championship in 1984 and was named an NCAA All-American in 1985. Following his graduation, he played six years of professional indoor soccer.
Wolf has been named GSAC Coach of the Year three times. He has coached 57 All-Americans and 5 GSAC Player of the Year recipients.
Wolf has worked at numerous summer camps and clinics all around the country, and has also been a frequent participant in ODP and club soccer.
Wolf and his wife Jill have five children.

Will this camp be safe to attend? We will do everything we can to ensure camper safety this summer. We will proceed with caution, and Westmont College will be carefully following local, state, and national guidelines in terms of reopening safely.
What are the COVID-19 protocols in place?
(As of 5.17.21) Each participant must show proof of full vaccination (last shot at least 2 weeks prior to event start date) OR proof of negative COVID PCR-test within 5 days of travel from each guest. Masking may be required at all times. We are carefully monitoring local and state guidelines. We will alert participants if these requirements change in the future.
What should a camper bring with them to camp? You will receive an email from the Westmont Coach staff about two weeks 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 a week before camp and will be expected to bring it to registration.
What is your refund policy? Due to limited space and especially high demand this summer, we will not be issuing any refunds after registration. Please to do NOT plan to register for this camp unless you can attend it.
What airport is best to fly into and what about airport transportation? Santa Barbara is the best to fly into. The Westmont Coaching staff is willing to arrange a pickup/drop off for an additional $40. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
What are the training facilities for this camp? We will be using Lovik Field (our training facility) and Thorrington Field (our game facility). Both are natural grass. Both are exceptional facilities and have been used for training by multiple professional teams in recent years.
