DAY CAMP: August 5-9, 2019

Now in its 21st year, our Day Camp has developed an amazing reputation!  Not only does our Day Camp exclusively serve female soccer players, the majority of our staff is also female.   Our coaches' ability to act as strong role models enhances their excellent soccer instruction.   Our coaches have been chosen because they love the game and are invested in giving back to local youth.  Many of our coaches are teachers, coaches or graduates of Concord-Carlisle High School, Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School or other nearby schools.  We maintain a low player to coach ratio (never more than 10:1) and are dedicated to the overall development of the female soccer player through personalized instruction, maximum touches on the ball and maximum time in game-like situations.

The primary goal of our Day Camp is to develop all fundamental soccer techniques and tactics through maximum touches on the ball and maximum time in game or game-like situations.  We also dedicate  time to auxiliary activities such as daily quiz questions, spirit day, “Soccer Olympics” and a cake decorating contest.  The purpose of these activities isn’t just “fun and games”, (though they are fun!), they provide a means to creatively enrich player’s knowledge of the game (and the women’s side of the game in particular), develop leadership, and nurture their passion for the game. 

Our goal is to inspire achievement by example and create a challenging yet fun learning environment.  By the end of the week, our aim is for your daughter to not only be a noticeably better soccer player but also to have developed close connections with her coaches and teammates, be more confident and self-assured, and feel even more excited about playing soccer! A local treasure, it’s no wonder many area youth insist their family make vacation plans around the one week we hold our Day Camp each summer.
