British-style soccer camp coming to Roseville

-A +A
Challenger Sports and the City of Roseville have teamed up to host the week-long British Soccer Camp in June at Hillsborough Park. The camp will run the week of June 15-19, Monday through Friday, and each child will be coached by a member of Challenger’s British coaching staff flown to the United States exclusively to work on these programs. There will be additional camps held June 22-26 at Kaseberg Park and July 6-10 at H.C. Elloitt Park. Challenger will hold over 2,000 British Soccer camps this summer and will coach over 100,000 players between the ages of four and 18 and over 20,000 parents and coaches. In addition to taking part in a daily regime of foot skill development, technical and tactical practices and daily tournament style plays, each child will also be treated to a rich cultural experience and lessons on respect, responsibility, integrity, leadership and sportsmanship. The most popular part of each camp is the Camp World Cup. The coaches use this daily tournament to teach the players about life, customs and traditions of other countries. The campers are asked to make up cheers, bring flags, dress up and learn as much as they can about the country they represent. Roseville Parks and Recreation is offering British Soccer Camp sessions for the following ages: Half Day - ages 6-14, 9 a.m.- noon - $147 Full Day - ages 8-14, 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. - $208 Teams are also welcomed to attend and receive a week of focused instruction to prepare them for the fall season. Each camper will receive a free camp t-shirt, soccer ball, giant soccer poster and an individual skills performance evaluation. In addition, any child who signs up online at least 45 days prior to camp will receive a genuine British soccer replica jersey. Space is limited – parents are encouraged to sign up on line in advance to avoid disappointment.
