This is Andy Fleming, former 25 year NCAA Division I coach, most recently at Xavier. During my time, I was able to win conference championships, go to NCAA Elite Eights and produce numerous All Americans and professional players. Regardless of the team or milestone, DEFENDING has always been the cornerstone to soccer success. 

I long considered the back four to that of an offensive line in football, a vital but often underappreciated part of the championship team. This is also evident in the camp scene with goalkeeper and striker specific clinics and camps…but nothing for defenders. 

We are fortunate to have a wealth of coaching resources within my network and 10 years MLS/FC Cincinnati defender Nick Hagglund and I felt it was time to share what we know.

Please see the flier below for details, including our all-star coaching staff made up of a former NWSL women’s professional and four former MLS draft pick defenders in our first ever DEFENDERS ONLY CAMP. This is the first of its kind in Cincinnati and one of very few nationally. 

In addition to being good defensively and winning, another constant in my career has been sold out camps! Please be sure to register quickly as we have limited the camp to 60 defenders to ensure individual attention and feedback.

Nick and I look forward to seeing you in June and sharing our tricks of the trade. 

Remember…no attackers allowed…DEFENDERS ONLY!
