Registration Open for Youth Summer Soccer Camp
The College of the Canyons men's and women’s soccer programs invite boys and girls in kindergarten through eighth grade to participate in the 2019 Youth Summer Soccer Camp.
Staffed by coaches, players and alumni from the men’s and women’s soccer programs, the camp offers a high-caliber curriculum that will create a uniquely fun learning environment for players who want 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 skill development, balance, coordination and endurance, with an emphasis on building confidence in young soccer players.
All participants will receive a camp T-shirt and soccer ball. Players should bring their shirts and soccer balls to practice each day, as well as cleats, shin guards, soccer socks, sunscreen and water.
Camp sessions will be jointly led by men's soccer head coach Phil Marcellin, women’s soccer coach Justin Lundin, and coaches from local high school and club teams.
Two sessions will be offered:
- Session 1 – 5 to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, June 24 to 27
- Session 2 – 5 to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, July 15 to 18
The camp will be held at the state-of-the-art soccer facility at the Valencia campus.
Cost for individual players is $125. Families with more than one camper can receive a discount of $25 for each additional child. Campers registering as part of a team (minimum of five players) will be charged $100 per player, but are required to register together.
All proceeds directly support the college's soccer programs.
