Annandale Kids Soccer Camp Coming Soon

The Annandale Boys’ and Girls’ Club is offering soccer camps from August 16 – August 20. After the excitement of the World Cup, there are many kids that are eager to head out to the soccer fields. This camp will provide children with the fundamentals of soccer from ball handling to passing to shooting to goalkeeping. The camp will also get them ready for the upcoming soccer season with lots of fun games.

Experience is not necessary and there will be a ratio of 1 coach for every 10 campers. Each camper is required to bring a soccer ball, a lunch bag, and tennis shoes. However, cleats and shinguards are highly recommended for safety.

The soccer camps will be held at the Annandale Sports Center at 6728 Industrial Road. The camps will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and extended day care is offered until 6:00 p.m. for an additional $5 a day. Children from kindergarten through 7th grade are welcome to participate!
