We are pleased to announce our new partnership with Soccer Shots®, who will be facilitating educational soccer clinics to our campers, beginning this summer!
Our program includes 6 weeks of instruction from professional Soccer Shots® coaches, featuring a developmentally appropriate curriculum that emphasizes character development and skill building.
Soccer Shots® is the premier Children’s Soccer Experience, and its mission is clear – we aim to positively impact children’s lives.
The program has been created, and is consistently reviewed and updated, under the guidance of childhood education specialists, professional soccer players, and experienced and licensed soccer coaches.
Soccer Clinics are open to all campers in Tiny Tots®, KinderKamp® and 1st & 2nd grade on a first come, first served basis. There will be 20-50 openings per campus in these groups.
Club Soccer, a progressive step forward from the educational clinics, are open to all campers in grades 3 and up. “Club teams” are formed to participate in live games following skill reviews and lead-up activities derived from Soccer Shots® curriculum, led by Camps ‘R’ Us staff.
Soccer Shots® is the premier Children’s Soccer Experience, and its mission is clear – “we aim to positively impact children’s lives.” Local owner/director, Alex Gallego, strongly believes soccer offers children the opportunity to develop their self-esteem while participating in a discipline that requires them to stretch their physical and psychological selves. The game also allows them to work on their social and team-working skills that will become invaluable as these young athletes grow and mature. Fun, however, must remain part of the game and Alex strives at every single soccer session to make sure that his athletes learn the sport while enjoying it.
