Kentucky Youth Soccer, in conjunction with three members associations, has announced the formation of a summer camp program this June. The camp program will be led by Adrian Parrish, Kentucky Youth Soccer’s Director of Coaching and Player Development and a group of highly experienced coaches from around the state and country. The camps will have both recreational and competitive camps levels and the curriculum will create a fulfilling time for each camper.
The dates and locations are: Marshall County June 4-8; Elizabethtown June 11-15, Floyd County June 18-22 and Letcher County June 18-22. Registration is extremely limited and played are urged to register early.
Each venue will host two different variations of camps - a recreational camp open for recreational players between 6 and 16 years old and a select camp for select players between 9 and 16 years old.
The Recreational Camp is a fun filled week open to recreational players who wish to learn more fundamental techniques and tactics necessary to play the game. Players will be given the opportunity to learn elite dribbling skills; perfect their passing ability; score stunning goals and develop their whole game in preparation for the soccer season.
During the week, players will be challenged through skill tests and have the opportunity to play soccer with old and new friends in small sided games.
Each child who attends will receive a Kentucky Youth Soccer Association Camp T-Shirt, Soccer Ball, Water Bottle, Participation Certificate and the opportunity to win numerous prizes.
The Select Camp is open for players currently playing select soccer who are dedicated and serious about progressing to the next level. The curriculum will simulate the sessions taught to the Olympic Development Program players.
The coaches will teach the players individual skills and technique by breaking them down and explaining through small group practices. Once the skills have been mastered we will introduce higher intensity half pitch and game related practices, which incorporate decision-making and develop player’s tactical awareness.
Each child who attends will receive a Kentucky Youth Soccer Association Camp T-Shirt, Soccer Ball, Water Bottle and a Player Evaluation.
