As the number of soccer players in the U.S.A. nears 20 million, the number one soccer company in the United States & Canada, Challenger Sports, has been invited to hold one of their highly regarded “British Soccer Camps” right here in the growing soccer community of Shreveport-Bossier City.

CABOSA (Caddo Bossier Soccer Association) has teamed up with Challenger Sports to host the week long “British Soccer Camp” during the week of 7/11/11 – 7/15/11 at Cargill Park, 7710 Lotus Lane, Shreveport, LA.

The camp will run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of Challenger’s team of 1,000 British soccer coaches flown to the USA exclusively to work on these programs.  Challenger Sports will hold over 3,000 British Soccer camps this summer and will coach over 120,000 players between the ages of 3 and 19.  

The British Soccer Camp is more than a week of drills and skills. In addition to taking part in a daily regimen of Foot-skills (part of the new 1,000 touches curriculum), Technical, Tactical practices & Daily Tournament play, Challenger has partnered with the NAIA to help educate players in lessons on Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Leadership and Sportsmanship.

The British Soccer Camp program also provides a unique cultural experience for the players, highlighted in the Camp World Cup.  The coaches use this daily tournament to teach the players about life, customs and traditions of other countries.  The campers are 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.
