HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Southern Miss women's soccer coach Mohammed El-Zare announced today that registration is now open for the team's three youth soccer camps to be at separate locations across the Pine Belt over the next three months.
Through the player-centered approach, campers will learn the fundamentals and tactical components of the game within a small-sided setting. Camp curriculum is designed to enhance each player's individual ability and learn proper timing to use the right skills at the right time to solve problems within the game.
Each camper will receive age appropriate instruction and will be placed according to their skill and age levels. Camps are open to boys and girls ages 5 to 12.
The first camp, set for May 28-30, will take place at the Oak Grove Optimist Park from 8:30 to 11:30 each morning and will cost $90 which includes a t-shirt. Registration deadline is set for May 24.
Two weeks later, the second camp will be held at Petal High School on June 10-13. Start times and costs will remain the same for this camp. Registration deadline is set for June 7.
The final camp will take place at the Laurel Sportsplex on July 22-25 and will run from 5:30 to 8:30 each night. Cost for the third camp will be $80 and also includes a t-shirt. Registration deadline is set for July 19.
All camps will be led by members of the Southern Miss women's soccer coaching staff including El-Zare and assistant coaches Betty Casey and Sean Mapson. Campers should bring a ball, shin guards, their own cleats, a water bottle, sun protection and food for a snack break.
