TENNERTON — This summer marks the return of B-UHS summer soccer camp and is open to players entering first through eighth grade during the next coming school year. Campers will have the opportunity to train with current B-U players and alumni. Campers will also be worked with directly by the members of the B-UHS soccer coaching staff, learning what it takes to be a part of one of the premier high school programs in the state from the individuals that have helped build the program. During the camp, players will work on improving their individual skillsets, while also improving their knowledge of game planning and tactics in a team-centric environment. The camp itself provides local youth a great opportunity to work on their fundamentals and log some additional training reps under the guidance of a great and established team of coaches.
The B-UHS summer soccer camp will take place at the school on the Freal “Red” Crites Alumni Field at Tom Hasbrouck Stadium, starting on Monday June 13 to Thursday, June 16. The camp has sat aside a time slot of 6:00 PM to 8 PM on Friday, June 17, to be a make-up rain period. Doing this helps mitigate the impact that rain could have on the camp schedule.
A list of items a parents/guardian needs to make sure to send their campers off with include: a ball, cleats, shin guards, and water. Campers wanting to work on goalkeeping training should also remember to bring gloves.
The registration fee for the B-UHS summer soccer camp is set at $50 per camper. The registration fee covers entry to the camp and a t-shirt. Campers will also have an opportunity to win prizes throughout the week. Payment is due the first night of camp, Monday June 13th. Only cash or check accepted. Checks payable to Buckhannon-Upshur Soccer Boosters. For more information regarding this camp, reach out to one of the B-UHS soccer coaches or go to the program’s Facebook Page, Buckhannon-Upshur High School Soccer.
