GALLIPOLIS, Ohio — As the number of soccer players in the USA nears 22 million, the number one soccer company in the United States & Canada, Challenger Sports, has been invited to hold one of their highly regarded “British Soccer Camps” right here in the growing soccer community of Gallia County.

O.O. McIntyre Park District has teamed up with Challenger Sports to host the week long “British Soccer Camp” during the week of June 23 through June 27.

The camp will run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of Challenger’s team of 1,100 British soccer coaches flown to the USA exclusively to work on these programs. Challenger Sports will hold over 3,700 Soccer camps this summer and will coach over 140,000 players between the ages of 3 and 19.

Challenger’s 1,000 touches coaching syllabus provides an innovative daily regimen of foot-skills, moves, juggling, tactical practices & daily tournament play. Challenger also weaves lessons on Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Leadership and Sportsmanship into the camper’s daily routine.

The British Soccer Camp program also provides a unique cultural experience for the players, highlighted in the Camp World Cup. The coaches use this daily tournament to teach the players about life, customs and traditions of other countries. The campers are asked to make up soccer chants, wear the team colors of their country, bring flags and learn as much as they can about the country they represent.

Each camper will receive a FREE Soccer Camp T-Shirt, a FREE Soccer Ball, a FREE Giant Soccer Poster and a personalized Skills Performance Evaluation. In addition, any child who signs up online at least 45 days prior to camp will receive a genuine British Soccer Replica Jersey (value $39) – www.challengersports.com
