Albuquerque, N.M. --- The 2011 New Mexico men's soccer program is now taking registrations for the 2011 camp series, the Lobo Soccer Academy. The Lobo Soccer Academy has a variety of camps and programs that fit a range of grade levels and skill levels. The Lobo Soccer Academy is perfect for the young soccer player looking to get started, or for the more skilled older player looking to advance to the next level of competition.

Camps at the Lobo Soccer Academy also vary from overnight camps to day camps, but one thing is constant throughout, and that's great instruction from some of the best collegiate coaches and players in the United States. Head coach Jeremy Fishbein and assistant coaches Paul Souders and Brandon Moss bring championship and professional playing and coaching experience to the youth of Albuquerque, and the Lobo players coaching in the camp have led UNM soccer to back-to-back NCAA College Cup appearances.

Below is a listing of all of the camps offered through the Lobo Soccer Academy. For brochures on the Lobo Soccer Academy, download them right here, or you can contact the men's soccer offices at 505-925-5727 or contact the staff at loboscr@unm.edu.
