Each day of the camp will feature age-appropriate, progressive ball mastery skills to develop individual player skill and confidence on the ball.

Day one will focus on the principles of attacking, with 1v1 and 2v2 games as well as passing, receiving and finishing.

Day two will focus on technical and tactical defending. This includes high pressure defending and pressing as a team to win the ball quickly.

Ice cream social with Heather in the evening.

Day three will put these elements together in small sided games to execute the core concepts we’ve worked on during days one and two.

Cost is $132 per player.

Heather Mitts


3-time Olympic Gold medalist, television soccer analyst, mentor and coach, Heather Mitts is coming to Omaha this spring. An All-American and NCAA national champion at the University of Florida, Heather went on to a long and successful career with the USWNT, with 137 caps, ranking 18th all-time.

She played in the 2011 World Cup in Germany and professionally in the Women’s Professional Soccer league with Atlanta, Boston and Philadelphia. Along the way, she trained with legendary coach James Galanis, Carli Lloyd’s personal coach.





The camp includes an ice cream social on Wednesday, May 31, at 7:30 p.m. at Elkhorn Training Camp, where Heather will speak to campers and parents and sign autographs. Ice cream from eCreamery will be provided.

Special Thanks


A portion of the proceeds from the camp will go to support the documentary series Kicking the Gates, about the growth of girl’s and women’s soccer around the world. The pilot episode is currently in production.



A new tool that matches female high school athletes with collegiate athletic programs, camp sponsor HIGHLIGHT-HER will have a tent at the camp and will set campers up with free profiles. In addition, the head trainer from Xplosive Edge will be on-site to administer free performance index testing as part of a player profile for all players in the 13-15 and 16+ age groups (normally a $295/player fee).

Title IX has had a profound impact on collegiate sports, opening doors for hundreds of thousands of female athletes. There are over 38,000 women’s soccer players playing college ball. The playing opportunities and scholarships are there, but the recruiting resources often aren’t. Highlight-Her is working to bridge that gap, bringing together players with coaches and teams.
