WACO, Texas– Baylor soccer has added to its summer camps lineup with sessions for players ages 3-5 on July 22-24 and players ages 6-8 on July 25-27. The two camps will follow the July 16-20 session for ages 9-18.
After guiding Baylor soccer to the best season in school history, head coach Marci Jobson and her staff have added the two additional youth camps to cover all ages this summer for any players looking to improve their game and interact with the Baylor soccer program. All camps will take place on the Baylor campus at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field.
The Baby Bears Soccer Camp will take place on July 22-24 from 9-11 a.m. CT and is for ages 3-5. The camp is designed to teach the basics of soccer in fun ways while incorporating the importance of the character building qualities of focusing on sharing, kindness and patience.
The Summer Cub Club session is set for July 25-27 from 8:30-11 a.m. and is for ages 6-8. The camp is designed to reinforce the basics of soccer along with character building sessions to teach the importance of teamwork, attitude and effort.
Both the Baby Bears Soccer Camp and Summer Cub Club include a free t-shirt and have limited space for registration. For more information on either camp, contact volunteer assistant coach Anna Maddox at Anna_Maddox@baylor.edu.
Space is still available for the July 16-20 camp for ages 9-18, which is divided into a Developmental Academy for players ages 9-12 and an Advanced Academy/college prospect section for players ages 13-18.
Jobson, who is the winningest coach in program history and a former United States National Team player, will be joined by Baylor co-head coach Paul Jobson and assistants Chuck Codd and Maddox for the five-day camp. In addition to the Baylor staff, a group of current college and professional coaches, along with former professional and college athletes and current Baylor players will help provide instruction at the camp.
In the Developmental Academy, players will receive quality and individualized instruction and hands on training. Each day of the camp will include work on skill training, individual tactic training and circuit training along with competitive matches.
In the Advanced Academy, players can gain an edge in their development toward collegiate play and have a chance to train in a college soccer environment.
As part of the Advanced Academy, a Goalkeeper Academy will be offered. The camp is designed for goalkeepers who want to get to their game to the next level. The camp will focus on the psychological, tactical, technical and overall fitness sides of the game.
