No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.* When Summer break rolled around, there were many choices for activities to keep the kids busy. Now that my daughter is 3, she decided that she wanted to go to camp like her big brother. We chose a week of British Soccer Camp to get her active and introduce her to the sport. She tends to be shy in groups, so I also hoped that it would help her to come out of her shell. The first day, parents and kids met with the coaches after arrival to learn what to expect from the week. Our location had 3 coaches all from different countries. 1 coach for the older group of kids, and 2 for the younger group. The kids all warmed up together on the field with games and running before splitting off. Sassy was excited to get started, which eased my fears that she might not want to join in the fun. Wrangling 3 and 4 year olds can easily be compared to herding a bunch of cats; but camp went beyond expectations. I cannot say enough about how awesome the coaches were at our British Soccer Camp. Coach Sam and Coach Ben were so good with the little ones, and really knew how to capture their attention. They played fun and imaginative games that also taught basic soccer skills. When a little one would go off course, the coaches would do their best to get them back on track. Their patience was saintly, and being a parent of one of those whiny but lovable preschoolers, I was appreciative. A Typical Camp Day for the Preschoolers Parents sign children in, making a note of who would be picking them up All kids head to field to warm up Coaches split kids into 2 groups based on age Preschoolers and early elementary played fun games, learning basic soccer skills and utilizing listening skills for 2 hours Children were given multiple water breaks and 1 longer snack break At the end of camp, little ones got a popsicle to help them cool off as a reward for their hard work* Parents arrived for pick up and signed children out By the end of the week, no one wanted camp to end! Our coaches did a mini graduation ceremony and everyone received a certificate and round of applause. I absolutely recommend enrolling your kids in a British Soccer Camp. I have now had a preschooler and 1st grader participate in British Soccer and can say that it can be a good fit for all ages. Sassy is still talking about the games she played, her fun coaches, and how much she loves kicking the ball. I watched her focus and skills grow in just a week, and I can't wait to see where she goes from here. *Popsicles aren't guaranteed at every camp, but they were such a great reward for the little ones.* About British Soccer Camps: British Soccer Camps are the most popular soccer camp in the US.
