AYSO Region 305 is proud to have teamed with Challenger Sports to provide soccer camps for Summer 2014. Challenger Sports run the most popular soccer camps in North America. After 20 years of research in over 2,000 communities in the USA and Canada, Challenger has developed an innovative way of delivering high quality coaching in a fun and educational format. We believe the most important thing is having well-trained people who communicate their knowledge in a way that inspires and motivates young players to want to improve.
This year will be the continuation of a very successful partnership with AYSO 305 Concord, which will also include spring coach and player training and the Challenger Sports Mini Kickers! Look out for a Challenger Sports coach on the field this spring or at registration events.

Challenger British Soccer Camp
|Challenger Sports' British Soccer Camp is the most popular soccer camp in the country. Hundreds of Challenger coaches each year have helped the company develop one of the most innovative approaches to coaching youth soccer in the US. Our experienced staff study the game at all levels and we have identified the key techniques and skills that your players need to work on and master to reach their true potential.
Each day includes individual foot skills, technical drills, tactical practices
The early mastery of technical skills is one of the most important elements in the development of youth soccer players. Challenger’s NEW 1,000 Touches Curriculum has been created to address the key areas of technical development that have the biggest impact on their performance in the game.
