Camp for Champs is designed for players ages 7-13 who not only want to have fun playing soccer during their school break, but also want to improve their soccer skills. This camp is open to players with varying levels of soccer experience, but is not for children who have never played organized soccer before (if you have a child who is brand new to soccer, our Half Day camp is a great option to introduce them to the sport!). Triangle Church has both outdoor and indoor spaces our group can utilize, so we will hold camp rain or shine! Space is very limited for this camp, so please apply early! After submitting your application, please allow a few days for the application to be processed. Once processed, you will receive an email from us confirming your player's camp registration.
Camp Overview: morning sessions will be focused on technical skill development and small sided games, and afternoon sessions will focus on larger group exercises and game situations. At lunch time each day the campers will go inside the church to eat and watch a movie (family-friendly, rated G or PG), which will allow time for them to rest and get out of the sun for a while. With the exception of Friday ( when Triangle United provides a pizza party for all campers at lunch), campers should bring a lunch to camp with them each day. Players should also bring snacks and plenty of water, as there will be snack and water breaks throughout each day.
