Soccer camp registration under way

March 19, 2009

Registration is under way for Penn State York's 27th annual youth soccer camp set for July 27-31 at the campus. The camp is designed for both female and male soccer players of all ability levels, ages 8 through 13. Players are grouped according to age and ability level during the first camp session.

Camp hours are 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Under the direction of George Miller, recently retired Penn State York soccer coach, players will participate in a total athletic experience including stretching and conditioning, drills, position analysis, rules of the game and team play. In addition to Miller, the camp staff includes some area high school soccer coaches who bring years of experience to the field. Lectures, demonstrations, films and instructional videotapes augment physical activity. Drills, games and other activities take place on the soccer fields at Penn State York. Players should arrive at camp each day dresses to play soccer and should bring indoor foot wear in case of rain.

The fee for the five-day camp is $185 and includes instruction and coaching, camp ball, a soccer T-shirt, and lunch each day. For information or a brochure, call Penn State York at (717) 771-4107 or visit http://ce.yk.psu.edu/soccer.html. Enrollment is limited to the first 115 registrants.

  • Players practice their soccer skills during camp.
