Have you ever thought about enrolling your child in a soccer camp? My daughter recently completed her first week of soccer camp during one of the hottest weeks of August! She was a trooper and really had a blast with the other kids and the coaches during her time. Read on for more of my review of Challenger Sports – British Soccer Camps.
Upon arrival parents would sign their children in and write the name of the person picking them up at the end of the day.
The kids would head down to the field to warm up – the coaches led various exercises.
The kids were boys and girls from ages 6-12, they split them into two groups (6-9, and 10-12) for practice time (this was from the start of the session for roughly 2 hours).
After practice time the kids had snack time and completed their daily team challenges (the coaches assigned homework each night).
The kids were split into 4 teams (on the first day) with mixed age groups for their games (they assigned countries to the teams and competed in their own world cup). They played two games each day.
Parents signed their kids out and picked them out.
Boo Boo is 6 and struggles with her confidence so I worried about soccer camp (especially since I signed her up for the session that had kids ranging in age from 6 to 12). I spoke with her coach prior to dropping her off about the fact that she may cry and he assured me that they would be able to handle it and that she wouldn’t be the only one.
The first day I stuck around a bit to make sure she would be ok but I think that made it worse so I headed off to the car where I could spy without being seen (the life of a parent right??). From what I could see she was out on the field running along with the others and when she needed help the coaches were always willing. The next few days her confidence and skill level increased and I decided I would head down to the field to see the games.
I am thrilled with the total experience – Boo Boo’s confidence and skills soared over the week. While she still wasn’t the most aggressive on the field the improvements in her game definitely were very noticeable. Since soccer camp finished Boo Boo has been playing soccer every day in the yard and I think we will see a remarkable improvement in her playing in the upcoming recreation department season.
