STARKVILLE, Miss. - Very few spaces remain for Mississippi State's June 22-24 Striker-Keeper Soccer Camp, and campers should register by Wednesday, June 20, to secure their spot.

Registration forms, camp schedules and additional information can be found online at or by contacting MSU assistant coach Andy Manners at or (662) 418-7694.

Mississippi State head coach Neil Macdonald and his staff will be conducting the Striker-Keeper Camp for the third-straight year after stellar reviews in the camp's first two years. The camp, which is open to players ages 8-18, costs $199 for commuters and $249 for residential. The camp will focus on building the fundamental skills of beginner or experienced strikers and goalkeepers.

Strikers will work on dribbling to shoot, moving off the ball to create scoring opportunities, finishing, shooting and attacking headers. Goalkeepers will focus on shot handling, diving, defending crosses and breakaways, foot skills and distribution from Robbie Kroger, a 20-year veteran goalkeeper.

The Bulldogs close the 2012 summer camp slate with a Youth Day Camp July 23-27.
