The British are Coming...to Teach Soccer!
Redwood City, CA - June 7, 2005 - Soccer is the national pastime of Great Britain, and nowhere else do the players, coaches, and fans have more passion for the sport. This summer, from June 20 - 24 at Sandpiper Community Center and from July 11 - 15 at Red Morton Park, the boys and girls of Redwood City will have the wonderful opportunity to be taught by soccer coaches visiting from Great Britain in a week-long camp sponsored by Challenger Sports Soccer.
The Monday through Friday camp is open to all kids, with sessions available for all ages and ability levels.
Prices range from $74 for 'mini soccer ' to $194 for a full day.
Players will receive instruction to improve their footwork, passing, dribbling, shooting, heading and tackling. During the week, the players will be part of a program of educational and fun camp break activities, learning more about the sport of soccer, and about Europe. And, every day of the camp the coaches will go over different aspects of good character that are important in sports and in everyday life, such as respect, responsibility, sportsmanship, and integrity.
To sign up for the camp or for more information, please contact the Redwood City Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department (650) 780-7311 or register online at www.redwoodcity.org/parks.
