CBC Coach Terry Michler will conduct the Street Soccer Camp this summer at CBC High School. With input from Jan Pruijn, one of Holland's top youth trainers, the Street Soccer Camp will allow the players to play informal games where the learning will occur as they play. The format of the Camp will be small-sided games, 4 vs 4, where the players will combine fun with learning. A variety of 4 vs 4 games will be played, each with its own special training emphasis or objective. This camp will be a variation from the usual camp format -- it will be fun and the players will learn how to play the game

Camp will meet every day at the assigned time. In the event of inclement weather, soccer videos, focusing on player development, will be shown in a classroom. The gym will NOT be available due to basketball camp.


A new concept in Camps focused on playing !! By analyzing street soccer yourself, you will conclude that its strength is that it is played daily in a competitive form, with a preference for the match on all sorts of 'street playing fields', usually in small groups. Rarely in street soccer do you see youths busy practicing isolated technical and tactical drills. No, it is always the competitive form, where youth players learn from their mistakes, unconscious of the technical, tactical, mental and physical qualities they are developing through the scrimmages being played. Playing soccer every day ensures this development. It is a process where it is not necessary for adults to be present. You also learn the team tactical principles without effort through playing the game.

Without question, the vast majority of American youths playing soccer today have never experienced street soccer. Yet, this concept is not foreign in American culture. Millions of adults today remember "the good old days" of sand lot baseball, pick-up basketball and neighborhood football games.

Finally, the bottom line comes down to realizing that children need to learn how to play before they can play soccer. Physical activity, free spontaneous play, is rapidly disappearing as an activity of preference for youths much less meeting the demands of soccer.
Session will take place at the CBC. Sessions: 10 am - noon
