There are still a few spaces available in the upcoming Shel Brodsgaard Soccer Camp at 19 Wing Comox Fitness and Community Centre – but organizers say they are going fast.
Brodsgaard and his team return for the fifth season offering soccer skill development to promising and enthusiast youth ages 10-14 years. The popular camp will be held Tuesday, July 19 to Friday, July 22 meeting daily at the 19 Wing Youth Centre at 9:30 a.m. and winding up at 3:30 p.m.
Each day features foot skill development, technical and tactical practice, cross training, sportsmanship, swimming, usage of the Youth Centre during break time to play video games and watch sports, and nutritious snacks.
Brodsgaard and his team bring a wealth of knowledge and experience. He was the Canadian Soccer Association national team goalkeeper coach from 2000-2006, as well as a former national team goalkeeper, and he is the founder/director of Island Keeper Clinics.
The camp will allow youth to further develop their soccer skills and fundamentals, as well as work with a well-known soccer coach who is motivating and passionate about soccer. Past participants rated the camp “awesome” and commented that their favourite activities were “working on different skills on different days,” “swimming breaks,” and “everything!”
The fee for the camp is $155 plus applicable taxes for members of the 19 Wing Comox Youth Centre, and $180 plus applicable taxes for the general public. Fees include a camp T-shirt.
Space is limited and youth must be registered to attend camp. For more information or to register contact 19 Wing recreation coordinator Jan Sandholm, at 250-339-8211 local 6989/7173 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
