ABOUT OUR CAMPS

But for snack break, the entire half-day, 9-11 am for kids under 5 years and 9 am- 1 pm for kids over 5 years old is spent on warmup, review of previous day lesson, agility for soccer specific movement, speed and coordination, followed by the lesson of the day. We focus on a different skill each day, for example dribbling, fakes and moves, passing, shooting and defending. The coaches will make sure each kid gets one on one attention and is helped to learn the skills.  We use fun games to reinforce the skills, to ensure kids can apply them in real soccer situations. Kids under 5 learn skills for 1 hour, 9-10 am. After 10 am, we focus more on 1 on 1 and games, unless the group is not ready, which is sometimes the case on day 1 and may be day 2 of camp. Kids over 5 learn skills till 11 am. As stated above, 11-11:30 is snack break for all kids, after which kids under 5 can take a break from soccer.

For kids over 5, we do 1 on 1 games till about 12:00. For older kids especially, we also do 2 on 1 and 2 on 2 games. We finish the morning soccer session with scrimmages. Unless we do not have more than 8 kids per age-group, all age-levels are broken down further by age, size and ability so that each kid plays with and among kids their size and level. Water- breaks are provided intermittently throughout the session, depending on the intensity of the exercises and the weather.

Full day campers have lunch from 1- 2 pm.
The afternoon session provides an opportunity for kids to get more one on one attention from the coaches, and to learn extra skills. Extra skills taught in the afternoon include finishing/scoring goals, extra moves, juggling, goal-keeping, agility (running technique and quickness).
At least one of the afternoon soccer sessions activity is optional per kid, in which case they rest in shade and watch.

Safety:
It is important that parents co-operate with the laid down sign in and sign out procedure, and our coaches will insist on it at ALL times. We really appreciate your help, parents, for your continued co-operation has made Coach Ken Soccer a safe place for kids for the past years.

We have at least one coach for every 10 kids; this is to ensure kids get ample attention from our experienced coaches. Every camp will have at least 1 male and 1 female coach, and a same gender coach will generally take the kids to bathroom breaks. Coaches ensure there is nobody else in the bathroom before any kid goes in. They (coaches) wait outside the door. All our coaches have been fingerprinted and cleared to work with kids..
