Challenger Sports International Soccer Camp (Grades K-8)

July 22-26 (Week 5) | Mornings 9-12 (ages 6-14) or Full Day 9-3 (ages 8-14)

We are partnering with Challenger Sports again this year to bring you top-level coaches and an amazing soccer curriculum. The early mastery of core technical skills is one of the most important elements in the development of youth soccer players. The more time the players spend in contact with the ball as they learn and develop core skills, the quicker they will master them and the better they will be at executing them in their games.

Challenger Sports has amazing coaches (with awesome accents!) who run innovative practices that will achieve these goals, all with a unique cultural twist. It all combines for a one-of-a-kind camp experience! In addition to the FA camp t-shirt, all participants will receive a free soccer ball and a Challenger Camp t-shirt.

We welcome youth of all abilities and embrace any and all girl-identifying youth. The curriculum and programming is adaptable and our coaches are well trained to meet the needs of all participants.
