Soccer Portion – We put technical development and decision making at the forefront of our curriculum. The soccer portion of this camp is an individual skills based curriculum that incorporates those skills and techniques into a team/game setting. Each morning, campers will receive instruction on the essential skills of passing, receiving, dribbling, turning, etc. These skills are then developed even further in small sided games and other fun activities.

Swim Portion – The campers will walk from the Hampden Park Pavilion over to the Hampden Park swimming pool. We will have our staff still on-site at the pool overseeing the participants inside the pool facility. The Hampden Park pool staff will be in charge of watching the participants in the pool as they will with any other pool patron. The pool staff will review all rules, guidelines, and oversee a basic swim test on all participants to ensure the safety of enjoying the swim portion of camp.

Goals:

  • To provide an age/skill appropriate learning environment
  • To introduce all children to ball skills and enhance the enjoyment of the game
