My oldest daughter was basically begging me to try a soccer camp so I signed her up for Challenger Sport’s British Soccer Camp. What is British Soccer Camp?
British Soccer Camp is the most popular camp in North America – 150,000 campers! With an innovative curriculum that develops skills, speed and confidence in players ages 3-18, British Soccer Camps provide boys and girls with the rare opportunity to receive high-level soccer coaching from a team of international expert’s right in the heart of their own community. In addition to teaching new skills and improving game performance, each British Soccer Camp provides lessons in character development, cultural education and is the most fun your child can have learning the sport they love!
What set the camp apart from other programs was that it hers was co -ed and it was kids of all different ages playing together. I think this worked really well for Makenna because she got to sort of be a big fish in a little pond. It allowed her to gain some confidence and not be anxious and score a goal! It also gave the older kids a chance to help out the younger kids and seem more knowledgeable.
Each day started out with some drills and skills and each day ended with a game. The two coaches were fantastic with the kids and there were smiles every day. Even on the rainy days! I really noticed her form improved greatly over the week.
Don’t just take my word for it. This is what Makenna had to say.
“The British Soccer Camp was a lot of fun. It’s great for kids that love soccer or are looking for a sport to play during the summer. My favorite activity was the game war. You kicked your ball to knock over the other team’s “towers”. There are lots of breaks, so I had to bring a lot of water. Also bring a snack for the fifteen-minute break. It’s fun even in the rain. I got a little wet but it was fun to play while it was raining. I loved playing soccer at the British Soccer Camp.”
