Week 4 • Rising Grades 4–6 • Morning Soccer Foot skills and Freestyle and Afternoon Tennis


Morning Foot Skills and Freestyle and Afternoon Tennis (Rising Grades 4–6)
Location: Waynflete Fore River Campus (283 Osgood St.)

8:45–11:45 a.m.

Noon–3:00 p.m.

Morning: Foot skills & Freestyle is a weeklong, small group camp for serious, motivated soccer players looking to improve their overall skill level and ability to do tricks as well as enhance their in-game performance. The morning will be spent with approximately one hour of foot skills, followed by an hour of freestyle, then finishing with 45 minutes of small sided games. For the foot skills portion players will get top-notch coaching on ways to improve their overall foot skills, knowledge of the game, and pace of play. We will focus on the following facets of the game: dribbling, passing, receiving, first touch, and shooting. Freestyle is a sport that combines soccer, gymnastics, and the ability to think on your feet and adapt quickly. During the one hour freestyle section we will introduce the four main categories of freestyle: uppers (tricks with your upper body), lowers (tricks with your feet), sit downs (tricks sitting down), and transitions (going from one category to the next). Each day we will be focusing on one category. The last day we will do something fun such as a performance or a mini competition.

Afternoon: Campers will join Coach Mary Gray for an afternoon of tennis. Mary will gear this program to campers rising to grades 4–6 of all skill levels. Campers will enjoy an energetic pace for games and drills to improve forehands, backhands, volleys, overheads, and serving. Specialized games and match play will improve game strategy (for both singles and doubles), improve the player’s focus on each point, and encourage light-hearted competitive play. There will be rest breaks and some free time built into the day. Pick up by 3:00 p.m.
