FORT WORTH _ The summer is no time for relaxing when it comes to elite college soccer players.

Therefore, Vaqueros coach Nick Stavrou and the Fort Worth Vaqueros announce the Vaqueros Elite College Training Program to run May through July this summer.

The program will feature training sessions 3 times per week at sites in both the Dallas and Fort Worth areas.

“After being inundated with Collegiate players looking for a place to play and train during last summer, we wanted to provide a well needed program for these players to help prepare them for their Collegiate season while identifying present and future talent for our Vaqueros roster,” Stavrou said.

The program aims to help incoming college freshmen or current collegiate players maintain their fitness, improve their touch and focus on the upcoming fall objectives.

Rather than going on solo runs and heading to the gym for a workout, participants will gather with like-minded, dedicated soccer players for training beyond just routine summer maintenance.

Players will enjoy the opportunity to train alongside the Vaqueros first team while maintaining their college eligibility. Additionally, participants will receive a Vaqueros training jersey and scrimmage matches against the Vaqueros first team.

“There are a slew of talented college players returning to D/FW every summer that may not be able to commit to a full summer with the Vaqueros but need the flexibility to enjoy elite training,” Vaqueros general manager Tobias Xavier Lopez said. “This new program with local icon Nick Stavrou will offer training needed by the top tier athletes to improve their performance come fall 2018.”

Players will be allowed to register for the entire summer program ($300) or a two-month program ($225) by heading to the official Vaqueros Gear Shop HERE.
