The PPA 100 is designed for players looking to be a collegiate student athlete. The PPA Team is looking for the next generation of players to show off their stuff. Players will be assessed throughout the 3 days in both training and game settings in the beautiful Premier Sports Campus at Lakewood Ranch.
The mission of the PPA is to give high school soccer players (Grades 9-12) an inside look into college soccer and to put those players in front of coaches from some of the top soccer schools in the nation. With a coaching staff comprised of schools from top DI and DIII schools, each and every player will be able to showcase their talents for the chance to someday represent those same schools at the highest collegiate level.

What separates PPA from many others is the attention that is paid to providing our student-athletes with the complete recruiting and college soccer picture. Every day at PPA there is at least one different seminar that is designed to better assist high school athletes with their transition to college. Our seminars consist of daily sessions that educate the student-athletes about the complicated recruiting process and the competitive level of college soccer. Past seminars include:
College coaches present and provide general institutional information about their school and soccer program. Players learn about the scouting and recruiting process as well as what it takes to be a successful college soccer player.
Current college players speak about their experiences coming out of high school and now as collegiate student-athletes. A question and answer session helps give the high school players some ideas about marketing themselves, picking the right school and managing their lives in college.
This seminar is about a valuable topic that will educate all of the players on issues related to personal development and life. Some of the past presentations have been about sportsmanship, community service and leadership.
The PPA 100: Winter ID Camp Clinic will be held in Lakewood Ranch, Florida on two professional world class fields at the Premier Sports Campus. There is no better setup anywhere in the United States - we'll have Florida weather, perfect training fields and we'll be on the grounds of a 4-star hotel where the athletes can eat, sleep and rest in style. The sports complex is located just 14 miles from Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport and about one hour from Tampa International Airport. Sign up today!

Each player will get the opportunity to train, play and measure themselves against other top players. Teams will be coached by current college coaches so that they get a taste of what college soccer is all about. Goalkeepers will go through goalkeeper specific training. In addition, each player will attend PPA seminars which will give a 360 degree view of what the college recruiting process entails. At the end of the weekend each player will get an evaluation of their play that they can share with coaches and colleges that were not represented.Space is limited - SIGN UP HERE
PPA decided to start a Winter ID Camp in 2013 in order to increase the opportunity for players to get seen earlier in the recruiting process. It will give you a head start in being seen by some of the top coaches in the game of college soccer.
Yes, for $50 round-trip or one way, you will be able to register for transportation to and from Tampa International Airport and Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport. The PPA Shuttle will leave the airport at 11:00am on Friday. There are no exceptions to this. If you can't make the shuttle that leaves at 11:00am you'll have to find your own transportation. The camp will end by 3:30pm on Sunday (at the latest) so you will be able to fly out anytime on Sunday evening after 5pm.
Sure, you are more than welcome to bring someone along to the camp but please remind them that this is all about soccer. It will be a busy three days and you'll need to be as rested and focused as possible. If you want to get a room with a parent, please contact the PPA office. An additional fee of $150.00 per night will be added
Yes, we will have evaluations that will be given to the athletes after the camp is completed.
No, but we are currently limited to only 100 student athletes and we have already had a lot of interest.
The Winter ID Camp costs $495. This includes camp registration, two hotel nights, three days of training with TOP college soccer programs at the Premier Sports Campus at Lakewood Ranch, Florida and six meals. Not a bad deal!
Sure. Just be sure to put each other down under "roommate preference" when you sign up.
A credit will be issued to any athlete who must cancel prior to camp. No money will be refunded. The credit is a voucher for any PPA camp (including summer) through the end of 2020.
There are no exceptions for injuries, or any other circumstances.
