LAKEPORT, Calif. – There is still time to sign children up for a soccer camp in Middletown this summer.
Clearlake Youth Soccer League has teamed up with Challenger Sports to host the weeklong British Soccer Camp during the week of July 30-Aug. 3 at Middletown High School, 20932 Big Canyon Road.
The camp will run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of Challenger’s team of 1,100 British soccer coaches flown to the USA exclusively to work on these programs.
Challenger Sports will hold more than 3,500 soccer camps this summer and will coach over 130,000 players between the ages of 3 and 19.
Challenger’s new 1,000 touches coaching syllabus provides an innovative daily regimen of foot-skills, moves, juggling, tactical practices and daily tournament play. Challenger also weaves lessons on respect, responsibility, integrity, leadership and sportsmanship into the camper’s daily routine.
The British Soccer Camp program also provides a unique cultural experience for the players, highlighted in 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 soccer chants, wear the team colors of their country, bring flags and learn as much as they can about the country they represent.
Clearlake Youth Soccer League is offering “British Soccer Camp” sessions for the following ages:
- Ages 4-6: Mini soccer, 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., $84.
- Ages 6-16: Half day, 9 a.m. to noon, $117.
- Ages 8-16: Full Day, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., $158.
Teams also are welcome to attend and receive a week of focused instruction to prepare them for the fall season. Team camp rates are available from your camp coordinator.
Each camper will receive a free soccer camp t-shirt, a free soccer ball, a free giant soccer poster and a personalized 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.
