The British are coming

Posted on Friday, May 10, 2013 at 2:58 pm

As the number of soccer players in the USA nears 20 million, the number one soccer company in the United States, and Canada, Challenger Sports, has been invited to hold their nationwide program of British Soccer camps right here in the area.

This summer, Northumberland Middle School has teamed up with Challenger Sports and the British Soccer camp will be held the weeks of: July 8-12 and July 22-26 (register for both and receive a discount).

The camp will run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of challenger’s British coaching staff flown to the USA exclusively to work on these programs. Challenger will hold over 2,500 British Soccer camps this summer and will coach over 120,000 players between the ages of 3 and 18 and over 25,000 parents and coaches.

Challengers’ British Soccer Camps are more than a week of drills and skills. In addition to taking part in a daily regimen of foot skill development, technical and tactical practices and daily tournament style plays, each child will also be treated to a rich cultural experience and lessons on respect, responsibility, integrity, leadership and sportsmanship.

The most popular part of each camp is the Camp Word Cup. The coaches use this daily tournament to teach the players about life, customs and traditions of other countries. The campers are asked to make up cheers, bring flags, dress up and learn as much as they can about the country they represent.
Teams are also welcome to attend and receive a week of focused instruction to prepare them for the fall season.

Each camper will receive a free camp T-shirt, soccer ball, giant soccer poster and an individual skills performance evaluation. If you register before May 10, you receive a free game jersey ($39 value)

Space is limited – parents are encouraged to sign up on line in advance to avoid disappointment.

Challenger has been conducting soccer camps in the US for 20 years and in addition to coaching youth players throughout the country, Challenger also run European and South American Soccer Tours, hold soccer tournaments and manufacture and sell their own brand of soccer apparel.
