Soccer Camp California Style

There are many fantastic opportunities for children to continue to learn new skills, and develop positive social behaviors while spending time outside the classroom this summer. One of the best ways to incorporate these, plus many additional benefits is enrollment in soccer camp. Children can learn the game of soccer not only through the directed learning experiences that experienced coaches provide in practice and game play, but also through indirect means, such as observation and imitation. As children develop into soccer players, each make their own beautiful and personal contribution in their own way, and help strengthen the team in the process. Every young athlete deserves the chance to develop in a fun, supportive and challenging environment and also deserve to be treated with respect and care as they grow into their full athletic and human abilities. World Cup Soccer Camps and Clinics, the premiere choice for soccer camps in California, aims to achieve these goals, and many more.

While the majority of the reasons for playing soccer are intrinsic, namely to learn and improve new skills, have fun, and to experience the excitement and thrill of competitive sport, emphasizing and encouraging players to measure their performance by improvements in their own, personal levels of proficiency and ability rather than by comparing themselves to other players or to other teams based on the game outcome is very important. All players achieve their greatest success by committing to ongoing learning and development. At soccer camp in California, this includes a full range of fun and exciting challenges that address all parts of the athletic, soccer and personal experience. The result is a unique and healthy approach to player development that focuses on technical skill, concentration, positive self-value and creative play, and celebrating successes because there is no separation between the development of a healthy, skilled soccer player and a healthy, skilled person.

Soccer and life skills go hand-in-hand, and by delivering deliver a clear development path for all players regardless of experience or ability, the focus can always be on progressive, accelerated learning steps that emphasize soccer skill and mastery in favor of the often more counter-productive ‘win at any cost’ approach. While mistakes are integral to sport improvement, ridicule, sarcasm and fear have no place in learning and impede both immediate and future performance successes. While everyone recognizes the importance of fair play for youth in sports, actually teaching teach the skills of fair play and putting it into practice to encourage players to succeed at their own desired levels – both on the soccer field and in the rest of their life is also a critical element of soccer camp. Every player receives the same professional quality instruction, learning opportunities, and fair playing time. These fundamentals are only a few of the foundations of success for selecting a strong soccer camp in California, like World Cup.

The ultimate standard of success is teaching children to love and enjoy the game of soccer, to feel more confident and self-assured in their abilities and knowledge of the game, to experience mutual respect and most importantly, to feel appreciation and pride in the opportunity they had to play a sport they love.
