Campus offers half-day soccer camp for ages 6-8

March 19, 2009

Penn State York's Junior Soccer Camp is set for July 20-24 at the campus and registration is under way for 6-, 7- and 8-year-olds. The junior camp is designed for male and female players and provides a half-day of instruction from 9:30 a.m. to noon each day. The experience will help to provide participants with an understanding and appreciation of proper soccer skills and techniques. Time will be devoted to basic skills and concepts important to the younger player. A full-day camp is also offered for 8- to 13-year-olds, so 8-year-olds can choose either camp depending on their skill and interest level.

Under the direction of George Miller, recently retired Penn State York head soccer coach, camp participants will learn the importance of proper preparation such as warm-up and stretching before participation, as well as foundation skills and tactics. Miller also stresses the importance of having fun while playing soccer. The fee for the five-day camp is $95 and includes instruction and a camp T-shirt.
