-A +A

As the number of soccer players in the USA nears 20 million, Challenger Sports, has been invited to hold one of their highly regarded “British Soccer Camps” in Cameron Park.
The Cameron Park Community Services District has teamed up to host the weeklong “British Soccer Camp” during the weeks of June 17-21 and July 22-26 at Christa McAuliffe Park, 2480 Merrychase Drive.

The camp will run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of Challenger’s team of 1,100 British soccer coaches flown to the USA exclusively to work on these programs. Challenger Sports will hold over 3,500 Soccer camps this summer and will coach over 130,000 players between the ages of 3 and 19. 

Challenger’s new 1,0000 touches coaching syllabus provides an innovative daily regimen of foot-skills, moves, juggling, tactical practices & daily tournament play. Challenger also weaves lessons on Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Leadership and Sportsmanship into the camper’s daily routine.

The British Soccer Camp program also provides a unique cultural experience for the players, highlighted in 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 soccer chants, wear the team colors of their country, bring flags and learn as much as they can about the country they represent.
