Challenger British Soccer Camp; Challenge Completed!
British Soccer Camp is the most popular camp in North America with 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. The best part is that the camps are held right in the heart of their very 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!
My youngest son took part in the British Soccer Camp program this summer. He took the full day camp that started at 9 a.m. and ended at 4 p.m. and lasted 5 days. When we arrived on day 1, I could tell this was going to be a positive experience. Everything was organized and the check in process was painless. Since we had preregistered, they had all the information needed. They passed out his t-shirt and soccer ball right away and we were ready to start. The kids were divided up into separate age brackets with an instructor. The days were filled with soccer skills training as well as fun. Each day had a different theme. My son's favorite was crazy sock day. My son enjoyed honing his skills and talking with this coaches from England. Honestly, I think he listened so well because he enjoyed listening to their accent.
Other parents were equally pleased. Some were returners and even recognized one of the coaches.
I wasn't sure how it would go, as this was the longest camp my son had been to. I I had nothing to worry about. He got up and ready every morning and was excited to attend. The only negative experience we encountered was the heat. Camp took place during one of the hottest weeks we have had all year. This is in no way the fault of the program and they did a great job ensuring the kids were hydrated and didn't overheat. I was comfortable leaving my son in their capable care. My son is already talking about attending camp next summer!
