Soccer Camp will allow for players to learn a love of the game of soccer through the mastering of technical skills(dribbling, shooting, passing, etc.,) and through a lot of game play. The technical skills will be taught early on during the day and the games will be played during the later hours so that players will be able to try their newly developed technical skills in game situations.
To compliment both the game and technical aspects of the camp there will be different soccer competitions that test player’s skills in a variety of fun ways. While players will certainly improve over the week in their abilities as soccer players, the most important aspect of the camp is them developing a love of the game which will inspire them to continue playing and improving.
