SAINT MARY OF THE WOODS, Ind. - Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College men's soccer program is proud to announce a partnership with a member of the United Soccer League (USL), Indy Eleven. Indy Eleven and the Pomeroys will host a Boys/Girls Youth Summer Camp at the SMWC Soccer Field this July 15-19.
The camp is designed to be organized so campers experience the best coaching from the Indy Eleven staff (with help by the SMWC men's soccer team), as well as the most fun they have ever had playing soccer.
Each player that attends a camp will receive, at the very least, an Indy Eleven T-shirt and a ticket to a home game (additional discounted single-game ticket price for the family)! Along with the opportunity to win a chance to participate in a half-time event at an Indy Eleven contest.
The camp is designed so that Indy Eleven can begin connecting with a much larger audience and provide the ability to meet its players and have a professional soccer team to rally around.
On the final day of camp, Indy Eleven will hold a Meet 'n' Greet autograph session with select player's and coaches from the soccer club.
Indy Eleven is an American professional soccer team based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Founded in 2013, the team made its debut in the North American Soccer League in 2014, before moving to the United Soccer League in 2018. The franchise plays all its home contest at Lucas Oil Stadium, with long-term plans of a new stadium in the city's downtown district.
The team is named after the 11th Indiana Volunteer Infantry Regiment, an infantry regiment that served with notoriety in the Union Army during the American Civil War. Colonel Lew Wallace commanded the regiment, which was mustered on April 25, 1861. Also, the name reflects both the culture of the game and pays homage to the history of the state. The number also is an obvious reference to the number of players on the field when at full strength.
The number eleven is important to the world-renowned Indianapolis 500, with the race traditionally featuring eleven rows of cars and drivers and the first race being held in 1911.

This will be an amazing opportunity that will enable us to work with and learn from coaches at the professional level."
Tizaf added, "This is also an opportunity for us to expand our soccer program, get more outreach, and create the potential for future opportunities. This will be a fun and educational experience for our college and our community."
