<b>Soccer Camps</b>

Challenger Sports will be conducting its nationwide British Soccer training camps at more than 70 different locations across Virginia this summer June 6-Sept. 2. The camps run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of Challenger’s British coaching staff flown to the U.S. exclusively to work on these programs. Each day the children will practice and master new individual skills and understand small group and team tactics through Challenger’s camp curriculum. Campers will also scrimmage each day in the Camp World Cup. Lessons on respect, responsibility, integrity, sportsmanship and leadership are taught at camp with discussions on how these core values relate to soccer, family and school. Teams are also welcome to attend and receive a week of focused instruction to prepare them for the fall season. A Challenger British coach will customize a curriculum to suit a team’s needs.

Each camper will receive a free camp t shirt, soccer ball, player evaluation and end of camp gift. In addition, any child who registers online at at least 45 days prior to camp will receive a British Soccer replica Jersey (value $30). To find a camp location, visit or call Simon Ambrose in The Challenger office on 877-439-9195 or email at
