WHAT IS SOCCER CAMP?

Spend 6-12 weeks engaging kids across the pond in the world of football. Our Soccer Coach USA programme is a fantastic way to travel the US and pass on your skills through coaching. You’ll spend a week at a time leading soccer sessions whilst staying with a host family, before moving onto your next location the following week – a great way of travel and explore the USA!

Soccer camps you’ll be working at are non-residential and you’ll be coaching girls and boys aged between 3-18 who range from beginner to advanced skill level.
