Soccer programs to hold July camps for players 4-18

Pitt-Bradford soccer teams will hold instructional camps next month for players age 4 to 18.

 

            For each camp, campers should bring their own soccer equipment, including cleats, sneakers, a soccer ball, shin guards, soccer socks and a water bottle.

 

            The Panthers will hold two half-day camps the week of July 10-14. Both camps take place from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on campus and cost $95.

 

            The Pitt-Bradford Youth Little Stars Camp will be for boys and girls age 4 to 6.

 

            The Youth Soccer Camp will be for players age 7 to 14. The camp will provide position-specific training, individual technique training and small side games.

 

            The Panthers will hold two weekend-long ID caps designed to provide players with an experience similar to what they would encounter at the collegiate level. Camp for girls 14-18 will take place July 14-15; camp for boys 14-18 will be July 21-22. Each camp costs $95.

 

            ID camps will include both technical and tactical opponents. Each camper will receive an assessment by a coach that evaluates the player's ability in possession, technical ability, scoring and attacking, defending, and attitude.

 

            Residential High School Team Camps will be held for boys (July 16-19) and girls (July 23-26). College coaches will work with players with the help of current and former student athletes.

 

            The coaching staff will offer intense technical training for immediate use in game situations. Coaches will teach team and individual skills daily.

 

            The cost for the team camps is $265.

 

            The cost of residential camps includes camper accommodations, meals and a t-shirt.
