As a service to the local soccer community, Rocky Mountain Soccer presents the “Rocky Mountain Soccer Summer Camps Directory”.
Have fun playing soccer this summer!
Advice for a successful summer camp:
1) Find the right camp for you. Not all camps are the same. A good camp has a safe environment, good facilities, low coach to player ratios, and lots of inflated soccer balls. And of course the 3 “L’s” of coaching: No lines, No lectures and No laps. Every camp should have a clear camp philosophy.
2) “Hydrate!” Get a big water container and drink it. All day camps should have a place to refill water containers.
3) Bring a snack. 3 hours of exercise is to long to go without added calories.
6) Arrive on time
7) Be sure the coaches on site have the parent’s/guardian’s cell phone number
8) Ask if the coaches on site have current CPR/First Aid training and a “in case of emergency plan”.
9) Make new friends
10) You get out of camp what you put into it. Be positive and ready to play.
