The Loyola Youth Soccer Camp program offers half-day and full-day options designed for youth who would like to improve their individual skill. *New this summer* camp will be located ON-CAMPUS at our brand new turf field (Sean Earl Field). In addition to the location change, we will be adding a beach/water component to camp (full-day campers only) as well as indoor activities such as watching Olympic sports or professional soccer games. The camp is designed for boys and girl’s ages 5-13 of all ability levels who are enthusiastic about learning in a fun environment. Players will be separated based on age and ability levels in order to give each player the best opportunity to learn and experience success.
The emphasis of the Loyola Youth Soccer Camp will be on fun skills development to improve each player’s confidence, creativity, and comfort level with the ball, while also working on basic tactical movements with the more advanced players. We will scrimmage every day in small groups to encourage more touches on the ball, as well as large groups to enhance understanding of movement with the ball. By the end of the week, all campers will leave with a greater understanding of the fundamentals of passing, dribbling, shooting, and first touch with the ball.
All campers will receive an official Loyola Soccer Camps t-shirt and soccer ball. Each day our full day campers will have the opportunity to purchase a pizza lunch, or to bring their own lunch. Additional camp store items will be available for purchase.
*Full-Day Registrants Only*
With camp being on-campus this summer, we will be going to the beach/lake for an hour in the afternoon each day. Lifeguards will be present as well as an alternative beach activity for those campers who do not want to swim in the water.
