Release No. 04.15.16-SoccerCamp
The College of the Canyons women’s soccer program invites girls ages 6 to 14 to participate in the 2016 All-Girls Soccer Camp, running June 20-23.
Staffed by coaches, players and alumni from the COC women’s soccer program, this new all-girls camp offers a high-caliber curriculum that will create a uniquely fun learning environment for girls wanting to build and improve their soccer skills.
By combining skill-emphasized training sessions, player-centered drills, scrimmages and small-sided games, the camp’s focus is on player skill development, balance, coordination and endurance, with an emphasis on building confidence in young soccer players.
All participants will receive a COC All-Girls Soccer Camp training T-shirt and soccer ball. Players should bring their shirt and soccer ball to practice each day, while also providing their own cleats, shin guards, soccer socks, sunscreen and water.
Camp sessions will be led by COC women’s soccer head coach Justin Lundin and assistant coach Charles Martinez.
Lundin, who will enter his eighth season at the helm of the program in 2016, has recorded a winning record in each of the previous seven seasons, including a run of five consecutive Western State Conference, South Championships in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Martinez, who begins his fifth season with the program in 2016, has a combined 18 years of coaching experience after starting his soccer career as a professional player in Ecuador.
“We are very excited to be able to offer the inaugural COC All-Girls Soccer Camp,” said Lundin. “The Santa Clarita Valley is burgeoning with local talent and it’s our goal to be able to help these youth players develop the skills, confidence and experience needed to take their game to the next level.”
The 2016 All-Girls Soccer Camp will run from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday June 20 through Thursday, June 23. All camp sessions will be held at the COC Valencia campus.
