Challenger Soccer Camps
Challenger British Soccer Camp (ages 3-16) and Tetra Brazil Soccer camp (ages 7-14).
Challenger Sports' British Soccer Camp is the most popular soccer camp in the country based upon one of the most innovative approaches to coaching youth soccer in the US and Canada. Our experienced International staff study the game at all levels and will help players improve their core techniques and become more confident on the ball. With programs for each age, the curriculums includes a variety of foot skills, technical drills, tactical practices, freestyle soccer, small-sided games and coached scrimmages. World Cup style games are held each day where campers compete for their adopted country and are encouraged to learn about different customs and cultures, and our core values of respect, responsibility, integrity, sportsmanship and leadership.
The TetraBrazil Camp combines traditional Brazilian technical practices with the flair, passion, and creativity of South American soccer. The TetraBrazil curriculum has been designed by an organization of professional soccer educators in Brazil to provide teams, coaches and players in North America with the same expert level of training received by the Professional Brazilian Clubs. Campers will warm up to samba music, learn Portuguese phrases and discover what it is like to grow up in a country where playing soccer is treated like a religion.
This camp will focus on skill development through individual and group drills. Each camper needs to bring a water bottle and a snack.
