Day One of JCJC's Soccer Day Camp Teaches Kids Fundamentals

Posted: Updated:

Day one of JCJC's soccer day camp starts with the basics.

"Teach them just the fundamental skills," says camp facilitator Richard Beebe. "It's the first day, so now I know the level and we can try to build on that."

The four-day camp works with kids ages 8-14.

The campers credit instructors like Beebe for what they have already learned.

"They're fun," says 11-year-old camper Tanner Bullock. "They've helped a lot."

"Well they're teaching, showing us step by step, and when we scrimmage they tell us what to do and they show us an example," says 9-year-old camper Maggie Bullock.

Tanner and Maggie are brother and sister.

They play in different age groups, but are still developing similar skills.

"Like pull it back, making moves around people - faking," says Maggie.

"Learning how to do moves, how to fake them out, how to get past them and all that," says Tanner.

Coaching quick learners like Maggie and Tanner makes the camp experience worthwhile for Beebe.

But he says the campers must develop a passion for the sport, before they can take their games to the next level.

"They won't get better until they actually love the game, and once they fall in love with the game of soccer then they'll practice all the time."
