Boys and girls ages 6 to 14 who want to improve their soccer skills are invited to attend Benedictine University’s Spring Break Soccer Camp from 1:00-4:00 p.m. on March 29-April 2 at the Village of Lisle-Benedictine University Sports Complex. The program is designed to meet the needs of and challenge every camper. Players are grouped by age and ability. The 10-to-1 player to coach ratio ensures individual instruction. Small, sided games are used to teach campers to make correct decisions and perform under pressure. Benedictine soccer coaches Robyn Serge and Rob Kettle conduct the camp. Serge earned a national coaching diploma from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and is an assistant coach with the Chicago Red Eleven developmental soccer team. Kettle is a former head coach at California University and holds a United States Soccer “A” coaching license. “We want to make the camp experience fun for the kids, and more importantly, we want to see each camper return to his or her respective team an improved player,” Kettle said. Campers should bring shorts, T-shirt, water bottle, soccer shoes, shin guards and their own soccer ball. Each item should be labeled. The fee is $150. Family and team discounts are available. For more information, contact Kettle at (630) 829-6165 or by e-mail at rkettle@ben.edu. Online registration is available at www.ben.edu.
