Barberton Parks and Recreation is pleased to announce another year of partnership with Challenger Sports, providers of the USA’s most popular soccer camp, to host the week long British Soccer camp during the week of 7/17/2016 – 7/21/2016 at the Barberton Community Foundation Sports Complex.

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 3,900 British Soccer Camps this summer and will coach over 140,000 players between the ages of 3 and 18, as well as completing FREE coach education clinics for over 30,000 parents and coaches.

Challenger’s British Soccer Camp is more than a week of drills and skills. In addition to taking part in a daily regimen of foot skill development (through the 1,000 touches curriculum), technical and tactical practices and daily ‘World Cup’ tournament style plays, each child will be treated to a rich cultural experience and lessons on respect, responsibility, integrity, leadership and sportsmanship. Each camp is custom built to meet the needs of your players so Challenger will be directed by the organization on the content of the camp that they too require.

Each camper will receive a FREE camp T-shirt, soccer ball, soccer poster, individual skills performance evaluation and free access to an educational soccer website. For further information please visit www.challengersports.com.
