About the event

Similar to our summer camps, this one day camp is open for all players ages 6-15 who are eager to develop their technical skills and tactical knowledge in a fun, competitive environment. The main focuses of the camp will be:

  1. Ways to get more scoring opportunities
  2. Defending in different situations

Whether the player primarily plays defense or forward, all players will participate in all aspects of the camp because we feel it is important to have a wide range of skills. As players move up to different levels in their soccer career, coaches may put them at different positions which is why this variety of skills and knowledge are crucial. Also, players will compete in skill challenges and scrimmages with awards being given out at the end of the day for the player with the most points in each group.

Goals of Camp: At Beestera Camps we pride oursevles on the holistic development of each camper. Campers will be challenged phyiscally, cognitively, emotionally and socially in order to give them the most authentic experience possible.

  • Physical: Campers will become more competent and consistent in their technical striking and defending skills.
  • Cognitive: Campers will become more “soccer literate” and be able to interpret various tactical situations in game settings more efficiently.
  • Emotional: Campers will learn and demonstrate multiple ways to control their emotions while showing qualities such as resilience and perseverance in all activities which will result in higher self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Social: Campers will learn to respectfully communicate with others while accepting their culture and individual differences.
