SILVER SPRING, MD — The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission’s (M-NCPPC) Montgomery County Department of Park and Planning and Challenger Sports, the leading soccer company in the United States, are planning another series of British Soccer Training Camps in three Montgomery County Parks during the week of August 1-5, 2005.
Those who missed the first sessions in June now have a second chance to experience this unique special soccer program at Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreational Park, Falls Road Local Park and Ray’s Meadow Local Park.
Each camper will be coached by a member of Challenger’s British coaching staff flown to the USA exclusively to work on these programs. Challenger will offer more than 1,200 British Soccer Training Camps this summer, coaching more than 55,000 players ages 4-18 and more than 20,000 parents and coaches.
British Soccer Training Camps are more than a week of drills and skills. In addition to taking part in a daily regimen of foot skill development, technical and tactical practices and daily tournament style plays, each child will also be treated to a rich cultural experience and lessons on teamwork, sportsmanship and self discipline. One of the most popular parts of each camp is “Camp World Cup.” Coaches use this daily tournament to teach the players about life, customs and traditions of other countries.

- First Kicks (3-4yrs.) 10:45 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. $75.00
