A couple of months ago, Emily attended her first soccer camp! We signed her up for a 5-day British Soccer Camp through Challenger Sports. There are many camps available all across the nation for ages 3-14 so any kid at any skill level can find an appropriate camp.
On the first day, each child was given a soccer ball that is theirs to keep. This particular camp session only had kids ages 6-14. Each day began with a little socialization and communication to help the kids get comfortable with each other while they waited for all of the campers to arrive. The half day camp program started bright and early at 9am.
The group worked on the most basic soccer skills such as not touching the ball with your hands, keeping your head up while running with the ball, scoring goals, and passing. Then as the week went on, they practiced corner kicks, passing and more exercises.
On the second day, the kids were encouraged to go home and decorate their soccer balls. Emily got really, really excited about this. She couldn't wait to decorate it with vinyl!
Emily had a blast and looked forward to getting up each morning and playing with her new friends.
I’m thrilled that Emily was able to have this experience – it was so good for her and she had an amazing time. We can't wait to sign her up again this summer. There are still plenty of camp sessions going on every week for the rest of the summer all across the nation. Click here to find a camp in your area.
