Athletics Department to Host 2017 Girls Soccer Summer Camp

The College of the Canyons women’s soccer program invites girls in the first through eighth grades to participate in the 2017 Girls Soccer Camp, with two sessions running this summer.

Staffed by coaches, players and alumni from the COC women’s soccer program, this 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 a staff of coaches from local high school and club teams.
Lundin, who will enter his ninth season at the helm of the program in 2017, has recorded a winning record in each of the previous eight seasons, including a run of six consecutive Western State Conference championships in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. 

 “We are very excited to be able to offer the COC Girls Soccer Camp once again,” 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.”
