Gold Star Soccer in conjunction with the Chicopee Parks & Rec Dept. is excited to offer summer soccer camps. These camps will provide an environment where players will be challenged to strive for milestones throughout the camp. On Monday players will write their S.M.A.R.T. goal into their skills booklet. Tuesday through Friday players will write out what they will do to achieve "success" throughout the week. Players will compete for awards on Friday. There will be daily challenges at summer camp with the opportunity to earn Gold Star points that can be redeemed at the end of camp for Gold Star Soccer merchandise.
Daily challenges will include:
Carrying the ball
Total score for the Gold Star Animal skills
Striking the ball
1 v 1 matches
DAILY LEADER BOARDS FOR TOTAL DAILY POINTS
Players will earn “zoo dollars” and can purchase Gold Star Soccer merchandise though the Gold Star Soccer store on Friday.
Players that display the Gold Star Soccer character traits throughout the week will be acknowledged by the coaching staff for creating a positive experience for all campers.
Topics that will be covered throughout the week will consist of technical & tactical aspects for individuals and group play, speed & agility, and individual ball handling skills.
The morning sessions will consist of learning the proper technique of carrying the ball, juggling the ball, and the 8 Gold Star Zoo animal skills. Players will learn when and where to properly use all 8 Gold Star zoo animal skills. Players will end the morning sessions playing 1v1 matches allowing them to use the skills they were taught. Morning sessions focus on individual skill based competitions.
The Afternoon sessions will consist of players learning the proper technique of speed & agility, striking the ball along with attacking & defending principles (creating space, support, width and depth).
