Early Saturday morning on Jan. 30, high school students from grades 9-12 rushed the North Greenville University soccer field for the women's soccer I.D. camp.

The women's soccer I.D. Camp is designed for high school students who are interested in playing soccer at a collegiate level. The students got the opportunity to work with the NGU soccer staff and even take part in training sessions that allowed the NGU staff to assess and instruct each player's technical and tactical ability.

 Head coach for the NGU women's soccer team, Andy Robinson, gave students some insight on what they would be doing during the camp on Saturday.
