Saltillo Futbol Club and Saltillo High School Soccer Boosters have teamed up to host the week-long British Soccer camp July 20-24 at the W.K. Webb Sportsplex in Saltillo.
The camp will run Monday through Friday, and each child will be coached by a member of Challenger Sports’ British coaching staff flown to the USA exclusively to work on these programs. Challenger will hold more than 2,000 British Soccer camps this summer and will coach more than 100,000 players between the ages of 4 and 18 and over 20,000 parents and coaches.
Challenger’s British Soccer Camp is more than a week of drills and skills. In addition to taking part in a daily regimen of foot skill development, technical and tactical practices, and daily tournament style plays, each child will also be treated to a rich cultural experience and lessons on respect, responsibility, integrity, leadership and sportsmanship.
The most popular part of each camp is the Camp World Cup. The coaches use this daily tournament to teach the players about life, customs, and traditions of other countries. The campers are asked to make up cheers, bring flags, dress up and learn as much as they can about the country they represent.
British Soccer camp sessions are being offered for the following ages:
n Ages 6-12 Girls and Boys: 8:30-11:30 a.m. or 5:30-8:30 p.m.
n Ages 13-18 Girls, 8:30-11:30 a.m.
Ages 13-18 Boys, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
The registration fee is $101 per camper. Each camper will receive a free camp T-shirt, soccer ball, giant soccer poster, and an individual skills performance evaluation. In addition, any child who signs up online at least 45 days prior to camp will receive a genuine British Soccer replica Jersey (value $39).
Teams are also welcome to attend and receive a week of focused instruction to prepare them for the fall season.
