The camp will run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of challenger’s British coaching staff. Challenger will hold over 2,000 British soccer camps this summer and will coach over 100,000 players between the ages of 4 and 18 and over 20,000 parents and coaches.

In addition to taking part in a daily regimen of foot-skill development, technical and tactical practices and daily tournament style plays, British soccer camps include lessons on respect, responsibility, integrity, leadership and sportsmanship.

The most popular part of each camp is the Camp Word 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.

British Soccer camp sessions for ages 4 to 6 are 9 to 10:30 a.m. and 10:40 a.m. to 12:10 p.m., ages 6 through 16 can sign up for either half-day sessions — from 9 a.m. to noon, or 1 to 4 p.m. — or a full-day session, in which they participate in both morning and afternoon half-day sessions.

Each camper will receive a free camp T-shirt, soccer ball, giant soccer poster and an individual skills performance evaluation. Space is limited. Parents are encouraged to sign up online, www.challengersports.com.
