Bible Soccer Camp Is Coming!

For the Body, Mind, Heart, Soul...
And for the fun of it!

Main Camp (ages 5-12)  The Main Camp not only offers age-appropriate group setting for youth to learn and practice athletic skills specific to the sport of soccer, but it also provides a time for youth to socialize and learn about teamwork. Every few minutes the athletes rotate to a different station to learn and practice different skill sets. One of these six stations provides a Bible lesson. The camp aims to help each participant by strengthening body, mind, heart and soul.

Who's Leading this Main Camp? Our head coach was a former collegiate All-American soccer player who now coaches youth soccer. She's joined by a variety of varsity players on both the collegiate and high school levels who will share their skills, enthusiasm, and Christian character with the youth. Our support staff includes pastors, professors, teachers and various professionals from the business world. All this talent and character is brought together for the benefit of your young athletes, because of the forgiving love and powerful peace of the crucified and risen Savior Jesus.

How is the Preschool Camp different? The Preschool Camp is a beginner's camp. The 3 and 4 year old participants in this camp will have their own separate recreation area (they will not participate on the same field with older children). Preschool Camp can be described as an activity-oriented "Vacation Bible School" that combines soccer skills, social games, singing, exercise and Bible lessons. We ask that the children wear tennis shoes (no sandals or cleats, please)… and they are not required to have shin guards. We will happily teach your child soccer skills and Bible truths in an atmosphere especially adapted to this age group. Note: parents frequently use this program to prepare their child for entering the preschool environment.

Abundant Grace The undeserved love of Jesus-- amazing grace-- permeates our camp, and is shared with each camper during a daily Bible study. 

Gifts (Free Stuff!)  Soccer camp T-shirts will be provided at no cost for each participant. Likewise, the soccer ball each participant will individually use throughout the camp will be provided at no cost. The T-shirt needs to be worn daily while participating in the camp, just as each participant daily needs his/her soccer ball for participating in the camp. As mentioned earlier, this soccer camp is free of charge-- we simply ask that you spend some quality time with your child(ren) discussing the night's Bible lesson.

First Day of Camp begins at 5:00 pm for Check-In When a child is brought to his/her first day of camp, a responsible adult will need to sign in each pre-registered child. Do this at the check-in tables at our Welcome Center (positioned at the entrance to our athletic fields). At this time, we also need to receive for each child a signed Sports Concussion Information Sheet (explained in the following paragraph). Please help us speed up the check-in process by printing off this form and completing it at home, and bringing it with you to the check-in tables. However, we will have forms available for parents to fill out at the check-in tables, if necessary. Check-in begins at 5:00 pm on the opening day.

Drop-off and Pick-up For the welfare of our children, we require that a responsible adult personally accompanies the child(ren) from the vehicle to the Welcome Tables / Entrance. Likewise, at the end of each day's camp, a responsible adult needs to come to the Welcome Tables / Entrance to reclaim and to accompany the child(ren) back to the vehicle. Thank you sharing our love for keeping a fun time fun!

Watching from the Sidelines Parents and family members are invited to bring lawn chairs or blankets for sitting along the sidelines while watching the camp in progress. We'll have complimentary bottles of water in ice chests.
