Located in Thibodaux-Near New Orleans, Baton Rouge & Lafayette
Eurotech® is entering its 15th year of running soccer camps in the state of Louisiana. The tradition started at soccer powerhouse St. Paul’s School in Covington on the "North Shore" and when they decided to convert the campus to a day school in 2006, Eurotech® moved it’s camp to "Cajun Country" to stay as close to their loyal following as possible. Women’s Soccer at Division 1 Nicholls State University is also making waves with Head Coach and Eurotech® Regional Director, Dylan Harrison at the helm. Dylan is a Louisiana native and we are excited to have him on the team! Eurotech® and NSU are both known for their great programs and we believe NSU to be one of the top facilities in the south to host our camp program each summer. The campus is already home to other National Camps such as the Peyton Manning Football Passing Academy. A main feature of the NSU campus is it’s multi-million dollar face Sports Recreation Center and complex which has already been benefiting Eurotech® campers!

Nicholls State University
NSU offers athletic facilities with acres of natural grass fields (12 grass and 1 turf stadium field!) as well as an Olympic sized outdoor pool used for recovery, regeneration, and recreation by campers pending availability. We also have access to two large gymnasiums which are used for indoor training in case of lightning or bad weather in the area. Campers are encouraged to bring indoor training soccer shoes or sneakers in case of inclement weather. A newly landscaped campus and manicured soccer fields top off the facilities.
The brand new dorms are a very short walk to the fields and Eurotech® campers are now housed in air-conditioned dormitories comparable to a 3-star hotel complete with an amazing common area, billiards hall, first floor laundry facility, internet lounge, mini-theatre room and outdoor picnic amenities. The dorm rooms accommodate 2 campers per room with private en-suite bathrooms and roommate requests are typically honored. Attending teams and groups of players will always be roomed in adjacent rooms on the same floor whenever possible. Laundry facilities on the first floor feature a vending machine with detergents and laundry supplies, folding tables and plenty of coin operated washers and dryers accessible to all campers, guests and staff.
Campus Dining The brand new NSU Dining Center is literally across the street offering buffet style meals with several entrees daily, full salad/fruit bar, dessert bar, drink bar, and a camper favorite -The Grill, where campers can order all their favorites like pizza and burgers during both lunch and dinner! There are also drink vending machines in the dormitories and Eurotech® also offers the nightly Pizza Party for all Residential/Overnight campers.
Enrollment in the Louisiana camp session has always been high with sell-outs of up to 300 campers when at St. Paul’s School. Since the move to NSU and what they are hearing about the new facilities, teams and individual players from all over Louisiana, Mississippi and southern Texas are returning and the sessions at NSU will be limited to 60-80 campers. Enrollment will be on a first come, first serve basis and be set-up to guarantee the correct ratio of goalkeepers and field players.
24-hour campus security is also featured and experienced Eurotech® Coaching Staff, Medical Staff and Counselors live in the dorms and monitor camper activity daily. The dorm reception area is also fully staffed 24/7 for added security and peace of mind.
About Nicholls State University Nicholls State University, founded in 1948, is a public university located in Thibodaux, Louisiana, USA. Nicholls is part of the University of Louisiana System of universities. Originally called Francis T. Nicholls Junior College, the institution split from the Louisiana State University System in 1956. The university is named for Francis T. Nicholls, a former governor of Louisiana, and member of the Louisiana Supreme Court. The 287-acre campus, once part of historic Acadia Plantation, fronts on Bayou Lafourche, about 50 miles southwest of New Orleans and 60 miles southeast of Baton Rouge. Nicholls is located in Acadiana, also known as "Cajun Country," an area rich in tradition and culture. It is also located in the heart of the Mississippi River Delta, allowing easy access to the river, its distributaries, Louisiana’s wetlands, and the Gulf of Mexico. The school is sometimes referred to as "Our Harvard on the Bayou;" the university bookstore even sells shirts sporting this light-hearted nickname. Nicholls is also the home of the John Folse Culinary Institute.
