Black Hills Rapids Camps

The Black Hills Rapids offers camps to area youth during the year. Each camp teaches the necessary skills, from basic to advanced, that enable participants to become better soccer players.

Our camp coaches are among the best in the region. Many are head coaches of university soccer programs, while others are chosen from our own professional staff. All have years of experience teaching youth soccer at a high level.
