Vogelsinger Soccer Academy at UC Santa Barbara
The University of California, Santa Barbara is set to host another summer of Nike Vogelsinger Soccer Academy. Camp director Doug Parra has been with Vogelsinger Soccer Academy for over 36 years. A prodigy of Hubert Vogelsinger himself, Parra continued to work alongside Hubert for 25 years. Campers train on the grassy athletic fields on the bluffs of Santa Barbara overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Parra brings international soccer experience to the academy. Parra has spent time playing and coaching in Spain, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela.
“The Vogelsinger Soccer Academy at UCSB is a program designed for serious soccer players who have a desire to improve,” says VP of Nike Soccer Camps Renee Chapman. “Each year under the direction of Coach Parra campers have the ability to reach their highest potential. The skills and life lessons they learn are unparalleled. It is no surprise that soccer players from across the globe choose to attend the Academy at UCSB.”
