Boys and Girls Soccer Camp (JUNE 25 - 29) (9 AM - 3 PM)
The Spartan Soccer Camps are open to those who are in grades two through eight for this upcoming school year. (The camps are not open to rising ninth graders.) Although they are being held the same week, the boys and girls camps will be run independently of each other on the spacious grounds and using the excellent facilities at St. Mark's High School when enrollment allows. For the girls and boys camps, players will be separated according to age and ability, and our goal will be to teach the players basic soccer skills and expose the more experienced player to higher level skills. Also, each player will play both indoor and outdoor scrimmages each day.
The minikickers camp is making its return to the Spartan Sports Camp lineup. This camp is specifically designed for young soccer players who are 6 or 7 years of age and will run for half day sessions. The camp will work on teaching fundamentals like shooting, trapping, passing, heading, and throw ins. Players will be placed in small groups and have the chance to practice the skills that they have learned. Scrimmage games will be held daily to work on all aspects of playing and learning the game of soccer.
Cost: $150 which includes a $75 non-refundable deposit that will be applied to tuition.
