In the Spring we told you about this very special offer where the Challenger Camps British Soccer Camp had special registration offer. We definitely took advantage of the FREE SOCCER JERSEY, SOCCER BALL, T-SHIRT & POSTER as we signed up for what is our third year at this soccer camp. While it has been a favorite the third year was definitely the charm as my daughter enjoyed it more this year than any year before. She even asked if she could return for one of the other weeks this summer that it is offered!
British Soccer Camp has always provided us with helpful and informative communication. It is very security oriented as the parent dropping off and parent picking up must sign in and out and must match the signature. No child was permitted to leave without a signature. The coaches kept the children disciplined and on point with the practice but also had lots of fun with them. In addition to learning and experiencing soccer skills each team was assigned a country to learn about. They brought fun facts to camp to share, created a flag to represent their team (my daughter was Wales) and even had a “be a coach day. ”
Passing, dribbling, teamwork and other skills were taught while the kids were having fun. I think what was most impressive was this story I’ll share with you.
This young lady (age 12) showed up because “Her parents were making her go to soccer camp. She’s not sitting at home all day playing video games and sleeping.” She arrived without any gear and nothing but a pink sequined purse and her cell phone. Day 2 she returns with cleats, shin guards and appropriately dressed but still not thrilled. Day 3 she returns and I see her out on the field. By the end of the week she was flying up and down the field, having fun taking shots and the goal and smiling.
That’s an impressive camp.
Now will that happen with every disgruntled tween sent to summer camp? Probably not, but I’ve always been impressed by the professionalism and courtesy that the British Soccer Camp coaches provide each year.
Want to be even more involved with British Soccer Camp? You can even be a host family and have a great time learning about your coach, where they are from and life there – as they experience life here in the states.
