Since soccer camps are often the first introduction to soccer for many youngsters, it’s important to choose a soccer camp that does more than just baby-sit. For children starting to play soccer at ages anywhere from four to six years old, soccer can become passion rarely quickly —one that takes up their time in a constructive, positive and healthy way. Making soccer something they love and want to master, whether it's juggling, dribbling or bending the ball around a wall, a soccer camp is great investment into not just your child’s soccer future, but their well-being.

If you’re looking for a soccer camp for yourself, select one that fits your ability level but also challenges you to improve your game. Think ahead, and if you’re in high school, choose a camp at a college you might be interested in attending. It’s a great way to get an early look from a college soccer coach. Above all, find a camp that works for you. Is it an all day soccer camp, an overnight camp or is it a half day camp near where you live? Take all these factors into consideration before deciding on what soccer camp you want to attend.
Questions to Ask
The best thing to do when looking for a soccer camp, whether it’s for yourself or for a child, is to ask around. Don’t just question the people who run the soccer camp…Find people who’ve participated in that camp before. Ask other players for ideas. Don’t be shy. Even if you don’t know too many soccer players in your area, go on the Internet and find soccer-related forums and message boards. Shop around! These are some issues to consider:
How competitive is the camp? Do they seem to focus more on winning camps or the joy of the game? Which one you prefer will depend on your situation. Are you (or the child) new to soccer? A non-competitive and relaxed atmosphere could provide a better introduction to the game, and show how fun it can be. But if the motivation to play soccer is already there, and the focus is on skill and strategy, then a competitive camp will cater more appropriately to that.
Who will be teaching and coaching? What is their background in soccer? How old are they, and how long have they been with the camp? How many are there, and how often will they be interacting with you or the child? What is the ratio of counselor to camper? Look for credentials, but dig deeper, too. If you get the chance, watch them play or coach or train others. Not only look at their teaching style, but also their own skill.
Inquire about their daily activities. Do they have a schedule? And do they stick to it? What is the curriculum? Do the drills and exercises progress as time goes on? Is there a routine, where the same things are done every day, or is each day different? Are the activities going to be challenging enough? Are physical activities supplemented with education about strategy? Are strength and flexibility building a priority?
Is safety a major concern? Do the coaches and counselors watch out for their players, teaching them proper form, making sure they don’t over-extend themselves to the point of injury, and requiring them to use the appropriate safety gear? If you or a child becomes injured, what is their protocol? Do they have someone who is familiar with emergency care on staff?
Types of Camps
Day camps. Usually operate on a week-by-week basis.
Residential camps. Attendees stay overnight. Often at colleges or universities. Meals are typically included.
Community camps. Sponsored by a local organization for a short period of time. Usually less expensive than the above.
Position-specific camps. Focus on training attendees in a certain position (e.g. goalkeeper, forward, etc.).
Advanced camps. More intense, thorough and competitive than most. Usually residential.
International camps. Would you like to become a better soccer player and also visit a new country? Take a look at camps abroad that offer quality coaching and let you explore a new culture.
