Layla and Katy talk to Channel 6 about how much fun they are having at camp!

With more than 25 years of coaching and camp experience, Lamar Head Coach Steve Holeman promises to bring you an amazing week of fun, learning, and soccer.  The camp will take place at the multi-million dollar Lamar Soccer Complex.  This state-of-the-art outdoor complex is also home to an air-conditioned indoor facility where campers can escape the heat during breaks and enjoy daytime activities.

You will start each day with a fun musical morning warm-up prior to the day’s first session of technical training.  You will then take a break from the heat as we escort campers to swim at the indoor pool on the Lamar campus.  After lunch in the Brooks-Shivers buffet-style dining hall, you will head back to the soccer complex for the afternoon tactical session.  To conclude the day you will compete in small-sided to full-sided games.

In addition to learning about the great game of soccer you will also have fun with our daily competitions like Soccer Olympics, Crazy T-shirt contest, Crazy Hair day, and more!

We look forward to seeing you at camp!

Parent Reviews from Summer 2016

"My daughter absolutely loved the Lil' Cardinals Soccer Camp and is begging to go back. The camp was well organized, had multiple games/competitions to keep the kids engaged and had very competent staff. All the coaches had a real love of soccer and that was handed down to all the little campers. We can't thank you enough for the wonderful experience our daughter had!"  - K. M. (June 2016)
