With the World Cup only a few months away and with around 20 million Americans now playing the sport, the number one soccer company in the United States & Canada, Challenger Sports, has been invited to hold one of their highly regarded “British Soccer Camps” right here in the growing soccer community of Salem, Indiana. 

Washington County Family YMCA and Salem Soccer Club has teamed up to host the week long “British Soccer Camp” during the week of July 7-11th, at Washington County Family YMCA soccer fields .

The camp will run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of Challenger’s elite team of 1,200 British soccer coaches flown to the USA exclusively to work on these programs. Challenger Sports will hold over 4,000 Soccer programs this year and will coach over 200,000 players between the ages of 3 and 19.

Challenger’s new 1,000 touches coaching syllabus provides an innovative daily regimen of foot-skills, moves, juggling, tactical practices & daily tournament play. Challenger also weaves lessons on Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Leadership and Sportsmanship into the camper’s daily routine.

The British Soccer Camp program also provides a unique cultural experience for the players, highlighted in the Camp World 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 soccer chants, wear the team colors of their country, bring flags and learn as much as they can about the country they represent.

The YMCA and Salem Soccer Club are offering “British Soccer Camp” sessions for the following ages:

Ages 3-4, First Kicks, 9am – 10am, $80; Ages 4-6, Mini Soccer, 10:30am – 12pm,  $94; Ages 6-9, Half Day, 9am-12pm, $125; Ages 10-14, Half Day, 1pm – 4pm, $125.

Teams are also welcome to attend and receive a week of focused instruction to prepare them for the fall season – Team Camp Rates are available from your Camp Coordinator.

Each camper will receive a FREE Soccer Camp T-Shirt, a FREE Soccer Ball, a FREE Giant Soccer Poster and a personalized Skills Performance Evaluation.
