For the past two years my son has participated in a British Soccer Camp during the summer. Each time he has enjoyed the program and walked away with improved soccer skills.
The coaches were both knowledgeable about the sport of soccer and really great with kids. Each day they did a variety of different soccer drills and games.
Because there were children of all different ages and skill levels, they split everyone into different groups and each group was assigned a different coach.
Helpful Tips for Parents with Children Attending a British Soccer Camp
- Because these camps are held during the hot summer months, be sure to pack an extra water bottle (or two). They give water breaks throughout the camp and your child will likely go through more water than you initially expect.
- Make sure to have your child apply sunblock before camp. There likely won't be much shade and you don't want to deal with sunburn.
- Each child receives a ball as part of the camp and they can use it during the camp. However, doing that means that nearly everyone will have the same ball and it will be hard to distinguish between them. Bring a sharpie to write your child's name on the ball or bring along an extra ball and have your child use that one instead.
- Parents are welcome to stay and watch or drop off their children and pick them up once it is over.
Overall, it was a great experience and my son really enjoyed the program. We would definitely recommend it other parents.
