Special to the Town Crier

As the number of soccer players in the United States nears 20 million, Challenger Sports has been invited to hold one of their highly regarded British Soccer Camps right here in the growing soccer community of Canfield.

South Range Soccer Club has teamed up to host the weeklong British Soccer Camp during the week of July 9 to 13, at South Range Soccer Field, 5509 W Middletown Road, Canfield.

The camp will run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of Challenger's team of 1,100 British soccer coaches flown to the United States exclusively to work on these programs. Challenger Sports will hold more than 3,500 Soccer camps this summer and will coach over 130,000 players between the ages of three and 19.

Challenger's new 1,000 touches coaching syllabus provides an innovative daily regimen of foot-skills, moves, juggling, tactical practices & daily tournament play. Challenger also weaves lessons on respect, responsibility, integrity, leadership and sportsmanship into the camper's daily routine.

The British Soccer Camp program also provides a unique cultural experience for the players, highlighted in the Camp World Cup. The coaches use this daily tournament to teach the players about life, customs and traditions of other countries. The campers are asked to make up soccer chants, wear the team colors of their country, bring flags and learn as much as they can about the country they represent.

Each camper will receive a Soccer Camp T-shirt, a soccer ball, a giant soccer poster and a personalized skills performance evaluation.
