FORT MYERS, Fla. – After leading the men’s soccer program to another Atlantic Sun Conference Championship this past fall, head coach Bob Butehorn and the FGCU men’s soccer coaching staff has announced the dates for their annual Gulf Coast Soccer Academy for the upcoming spring and summer.

Butehorn, who has led FGCU to four straight regular-season league championships and a pair of NCAA Tournament berths in its first three years of eligibility, will be joined by assistant coaches Chris Gores and Alec Dufty for a series of different types of camps. All camps are held on FGCU’s pristine resort-style, beach-lined campus, conveniently located just minutes from the Fort Myers airport and Gulf Coast beaches.

Below is a look at the various types of camps which appeal to a wide group of high school players (grades 9-12) who are looking to learn, have fun, elevate their game and work alongside the entire FGCU men’s soccer coaching staff. Butehorn will teach the fast-paced, possession-based attacking style of FGCU, which boasts several current and former members who were discovered at past summer camps.
