Challenger Sports have teamed up with Ruston Parks and Recreation to host the week long “British Soccer Camp” during the week of June 19 through 23, 2017, at the Regional Sports Complex, 1501 South Farmerville St. With an innovative camp curriculum developed from the country that invented the sport, and with a team of coaches who grew up eating, drinking and breathing soccer, Challenger Sports are bringing young players throughout the US and Canada, an up close and personal opportunity to experience the sport closest to Britain’s heart. The camp will run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of the elite team of 1,200 British soccer coaches, hand selected, trained and flown to the United States exclusively, to work on these programs. Challenger Sports will hold over 4,000 soccer programs this year and will coach over 225,000 players between the ages of 3 and 19.   Each camper will receive a free Camp T-shirt, ball, soccer poster and a personalized skills evaluation. In addition, any child who signs up online with Challenger at least 45 days prior to camp will receive a genuine British Soccer Replica Jersey (value $39). Space is limited so parents are encouraged to sign up online in advance to avoid disappointment.
