Coach Ken Soccer Camps in Mountain View/Los Altos area will be held in various locations depending on fields availability.

2. It’s mandatory for all players to wear shin guards and closed-toe athletic shoes or cleats; bring enough water/drink and snack for all kids. Due to allergy concerns, we do not allow kids to share drinks and snacks/food. Please remind us if your child has any allergies during sign up. Sunscreen is recommended.
All players must be signed up prior to attending camp. Latest rosters will be printed the morning of the camp. Players signed for just a few days can chose whichever day works for them to attend. You can also upgrade to do more days by paying the difference. Let me or the camp site leader know if you want to add day(s).
Kids 4-5 years play soccer from 9-11:30 am. Their snack break is 10:30-11 am. They then play 1v1 and soccer match till 11:30 am. They then have supervised activities, like playing at the play structures till 1 pm. Any 4-5 year old who opts to play soccer will be allowed to, but it has to be THEIR decision. We do not want kids to hate soccer because we push them to play longer than necessary considering their age. We would rather a kid loves soccer and plays for the rest of their life instead of forcing them to play 90 more minutes which would make them hate it and maybe never play it again.
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 will have the kids in line and parents have to come to their kid and sign them out. We will not let them come to you, that way we are 100% sure who is picking up. We really appreciate your help, parents, for your continued co-operation has made Coach Ken Soccer a safe place for kids for the past 10 years.
