Press release from Parks and Recreation:
Challenger Sports Soccer Camps
Kreager Park, North River Road
The Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department has teamed up with Challenger Sports to bring kids 4 – 14 a comprehensive British Soccer Camp. This camp will provide young players with the building blocks needed to develop the dazzling skills and quickness of feet used by players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcot. One of the most popular features is the rich cultural element that the International staff and British coaching curriculum adds to the proceedings every day. Each participant will receive their own soccer ball and t-shirt during this camp. Participants will be divided within the age groups for instruction and safety purposes.
The Challenger’s curriculum features:
- Individual Ball Mastery
- Juggling and First Touch
- Passing & Control
- Fakes, Moves and Turns
- Shooting, Chipping and Bending the Ball
- Volleying and Heading
- Tackling and Defending
