The College of the Canyons men’s soccer program invites any boys between the first and eighth grades to join the 2017 Boys Soccer Camp, starting with sessions that will be running this summer.
Staffed by coaches, players and alumni from the COC men’s soccer program, this all-boys camp offers a high-caliber curriculum that will create a uniquely fun learning environment for players wanting to build and improve their soccer skills.By combining skill-emphasized training sessions, player-centered drills, scrimmages and small-sided games, the camp’s focus is on player skill development, balance, coordination and endurance, with an emphasis on building confidence in young soccer players.
All participants will receive a COC Soccer Camp training T-shirt and soccer ball. Players should bring their shirt and soccer ball to practice each day, while also providing their own cleats, shin guards, soccer socks, sunscreen and water. Camp sessions will be led by COC men’s soccer head coach Phil Marcellin and a staff of coaches from local high school and club teams.
