Each day, our youngest players will concentrate on learning the rules of the game and basic techniques. This will be done by the use of small games such as Sharks and Minnows, Stuck in the Mud, Red Light Green Light, Ghost Busters, and Raid the Castle. All these games will help develop motor skills and cognitive abilities. We will also conduct game-like scrimmages, where the players will get to learn the rules of the “REAL GAME,” and compete in team activities. For some added fun, we encourage players to participate in Crazy Hat Day on Wednesday and Soccer Jersey Day on Thursday and Show & Tell Day on Friday!

Rising 1st through rising 8th graders
Arrival/dismissal zone: Green
Older players will get the opportunity to develop their physical and technical skills under the guidance of professional licensed soccer coaches with a strong playing background. Players will play games that challenge them to perform many of the skills needed to play the game at a competitive level. The players will work on dribbling, turning, controlling the ball, passing and scoring goals. Having the freedom to play and be creative at this age is very important for their development and the Brit-Am coaches have just the right personality to bring these games to life. Scrimmaging is a huge part of learning and campers will get the chance to learn the rules of the game as well as what skills to use at the right time and place on the field. For some added fun, we encourage players to participate in Crazy Hat Day on Wednesday and Soccer Jersey Day on Thursday!
