The College of the Canyons men's and women's soccer programs are inviting boys and girls in kindergarten through eighth grade to participate in the 2019 Youth Summer Soccer Camp, with the last of two sessions beginning on Monday, July 15.
Staffed by coaches, players and alumni from the men's and women's soccer programs, the camp offers a high-caliber curriculum that will create a uniquely fun learning environment for players wanting to build and improve their soccer skills.
By combining skill-emphasized training sessions, player-centered drills, scrimmages and small-sided games, the camp's focus is on player skill development, balance, coordination and endurance, with an emphasis on building confidence in young soccer players.
All participants will receive a COC Soccer Camp T-shirt and soccer ball. Players should bring their shirt and soccer ball to practice each day, while also providing their own cleats, shin guards, soccer socks, sunscreen and water.
Camp sessions will be jointly led by COC men's soccer head coach Phil Marcellin, COC women's soccer coach Justin Lundin, as well as a staff of coaches from local high school and club teams.
The 2019 COC Youth Summer Soccer Camp will run during the following dates and times:
- Session 1 — June 24-27 – 5 to 8 p.m. (M/T/W/Th)
- Session 2 — July 15-18 – 5 to 8 p.m. (M/T/W/Th)
All camp sessions will be held at the state-of-the-art COC soccer facility located on the college's Valencia campus.
Registration for individual players is priced at $125. Families with more than one camper can receive a discount of $25 for each additional child that registers.
Campers registering as part of a team (minimum of five players) will be charged $100 per player, but will be required to register together.
All proceeds directly support the COC men's and women's soccer programs.
