The City of Rocklin Parks and Recreation will host three “British Soccer Camps” this summer sponsored by Challenger Sports. The camps will be held June 18-22, July 9-13 and Aug. 6-10 at Johnson-Springview Park, 5480 5th St. The camps are scheduled to run Monday through Friday for players ages 5-12. Challenger Sports is bringing British soccer coaches to America to teach foot skills, moves and juggling, while offering tactical practices and daily tournament play. The camps will also provide a unique cultural experience featuring the customs and traditions of other countries; respect, responsibility, integrity, leadership and sportsmanship will be a part of the daily routine. The campers will be asked to make up soccer chants, wear the team colors of their country, bring flags and learn as much as they can about the country they represent. The fees will include a camp T-shirt, soccer ball, giant soccer poster and a personalized skills performance evaluation. Players registered 45 days prior to camp will also receive a British Soccer Replica Jersey.
