Summer Soccer Camps

The Summer Soccer Camps are a great place to start for the younger soccer player, boys and girls aged 10 or under. This 5-day camp features 15 hours of instruction in a number of practice activities and games that have proven to help young soccer players learn – whilst allowing them to have fun. Its fun because the kids get plenty of touches on the ball; they develop the basic skills of soccer while learning the essential skills of team play. 

The Summer Soccer Camp experience is primarily aimed at the 10 and under age group and seeks to provide a FUN experience and high ACTIVITY level whilst engaging participants in games and activities that have proven to develop soccer techniques and skills.

Please note, that boys and girls who are aged 10 may wish to register for the Advanced Camps.  The critical factor in this decision would be the individual player's playing experience and exposure to previous soccer camps.
