British Soccer Camp Trains Beach Players


The Fort Myers Beach Soccer Club hosted Challenger British Soccer Camp last week with Coaches Josh Hooper (Cardiff, Wales) and Jamie Hill (Dublin, Ireland) leading over 20 campers in a 1000 touch curriculum.

“Great Camp with some great future players, absolute joy to coach,” said Josh Hooper.

The kids did drills and played fun games specifically aimed at technical development of their game-time skills. Players each received a personal evaluation with tips on how to improve their individual performance. Teams were formed for a “World Cup” Tournament where players earned teams points throughout the week by competing both on the field and through assignments such as facts and geography of the countries represented.

The Soccer Club thanks the Orlandini Family for hosting the coaches during their stay in Fort Myers Beach. Coach Josh and Coach Jamie will travel to a different location in the Southeast US each week of the summer to share their knowledge of soccer.
