Challenger International Soccer Camps (staffed by coaches from Europe, Brazil, and the U.S.) teach a fun, technical, and tactical based curriculum, revolving around five of the world’s leading soccer nations: Brazil, France, Spain, UK, and the US. The International Soccer Camp will feature a number of new elements in the curriculum and will also include a groundbreaking technology feature providing players with an app-based platform that will help them prepare before camp, learn skills quicker and more efficiently during the camp, and then help them to continue their education and skill development with camp homework and on-going virtual training throughout the season.
Plus once again, players will be able to extend their learning experience through the TopYa! Juggling Club Sampler App. This incredible system motivates and inspires players to reach new levels of skill and creativity, and connects them with a professional coach who provides coaching and encouragement throughout the entire year. All participants in Challenger Camps or Academy Programs get Juggling Club and 5 skills videos for free!”
This combination of on and off-field skill development will both engage and entertain players and will encourage them to push the boundaries of their talents.
The new International Curriculum will contain a selection of age & ability appropriate drills and practices used by coaches throughout many countries in Europe and South America.
