Faith Soccer Camp is open to young athletes four years old through those entering the eighth grade. Faith Soccer Camp provides the opportunity for young athletes to grow in both their soccer skills and their faith in Jesus. The philosophy of the camp is to teach solid fundamental skills of soccer while providing Christian fellowship. All of our coaches have an enthusiasm for children, as well as experience playing and/or coaching soccer. We want your child to increase their soccer skills while meeting new friends and having lots of fun!

We’ll be covering a variety of techniques including dribbling, passing, shooting, receiving, and conditioning. There will also be faith-building lessons revolving around our camp theme. Lessons from God’s Word will remind participants that Jesus came to save all people of all times and places.

Registration is only $55.00 and includes five days of action-packed soccer instruction. For more details on the camp, please see the schedule and information page. Register today. We’d love to have you join us!
