The Loyola Youth Soccer camp program offers half-day and full-day options designed for field players and goalkeepers who would like to improve their individual skill. The camp is designed for boys and girl's ages 5 to 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; but will also work on basic tactical movements with the more advanced players. We will scrimmage every day in both small groups to encourage more touches on the ball; as well as large groups, to enhance understanding of movement without the ball. By the end of the week all campers will leave with a greater understanding of the fundamentals of passing, dribbling, shooting and receiving balls. Demonstrations will include current Loyola University Men's and Women's team members.
In addition, players who are interested in goalkeeping or currently play goalie will have a special time and program each day. Goalies will learn basic techniques in body mechanics, body shape, balance, footwork, handling, shot stopping and distribution through feet and hands. Instructors will be current and past goalkeepers that are experts in their position and will incorporate fun games to improve the player's confidence as a goalie.
All campers will be given an official Loyola Soccer Camps T-shirt. Other Loyola Soccer products will be available for purchase as well.
Each day our full day campers will have the opportunity to purchase a pizza lunch for $5. Additional camp store items will be available for purchase.
