The British Sports Challenger Sports Soccer Camp came to town!
But, we’ve been so busy with our travels this year that I have neglected to share some of the amazing sports programs that the boys have participated in.
Every spring and fall they play soccer at the local soccer complex. The goal for spring soccer is to get them back active after the long winter and to prepare them for the upcoming fall season since fall is more competitive.
Challenger Soccer Sports Camp
In addition to the spring and fall season, it has also been on my radar to register them for the summer Challenger Soccer Sports Camp.
Unfortunately, we hadn’t been able to make it happen until this past Thursday when Challenger Sports offered a free day camp with no tryouts and no registrations. So, we were able to just stop on through and participate.
But, What is Challenger Sports?
Challenger Sports is the most popular soccer program in North America. The day camp was hosted through the Danville Soccer Association with British Soccer Coaches Alex and Dave.
The week long camps are coached by international coaches from Australia, New Zealand, Holland, Brazil, USA, and Canada, as well as their traditional team of Brits from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, and Wales.
During the day camp, the children worked on skills and techniques, as well as a few scrimmage games. Now that I know what to expect, I am definitely making sure that both boys are involved in the week-long, summer camp next year.
In addition to being satisfied with the fundamentals being taught, I was impressed with how diversified the experience was for the children.
For example, instead of breaking them up into common colors and animal teams like the Red Team or Blue Panthers, the teams were broken up internationally such as Team Mexico and Team England.
So, not only were the children learning soccer fundamentals, they were also learning about the world around them.
