West Des Moines Soccer Club is committed to operating its camp and clinics with the same professionalism and pride that is applied to WDMSC Soccer program. Detailed preparation and planning, a competitive and challenging environment and accepting nothing less than excellence from every member of our staff is a top priority. We offer a variety of camp sessions that meet the needs of various athletes of all age level and skill level.

We measure camp success by the number of quality camp experiences, not the number of campers participating. We are proud to host summer camps, winter clinics, goal keeper training and preseason camps throughout the year. Our coaching staff is comprised of former professional players and a number of college altheles from Des Moines area.

Our goal is to educate and supervise every player in a safe environment and build confidence while providing an enjoyable camp experience for all. We are looking forward to seeing you at our camps and clinics later this year!

Ultimate Trainer

Ultimate Trainer is a winter program for the dedicated, driven WDMSC player who desires to develop the mentality it takes within training to be the best. Ultimate Trainers have the elite mentality to train insane, or remain the same. Winter cold won't impede this mentality--taking three months off is not an option for a true Ultimate Trainer.

The Ultimate Trainer embodies three characteristics: desire, dedication, and determination. The DESIRE to dominate their sport and become the best they can be, the DEDICATION of committing to excellence through the hard work of daily high-intensity training, and the DETERMINATION to stop at nothing until their goals are accomplished.

Elite Technical Training. Training sessions will be styled around high-intensity repetitions of individual technical skills on the ball. Focus will be on improving technical areas such as first touch, 1v1s, passing, and finishing. These elite training sessions will help you become the Ultimate Trainer by enhancing your ball mastery skills, and leading you to develop a champion mentality while you train. The more touches you get on the ball, the more comfortable you become.

The more comfortable you become, the more confident you are on the ball. Ultimate Trainers exude confidence.
