The camp is open to children of eligible families who will be aged from 2 to 16 on October 1st. Although our camp will be held in July, this cutoff date has been chosen to align with the divisions we use in our regular outdoor seasons, so that players who play with us in the Fall season will learn with other players who will play in the same division.
Please note that there are no all-girl classes: boys and girls will learn together.
Program content will be modified as needed to adhere to COVID-19 guidelines.
Times: 5:30 – 7:00 PM Monday to Friday
The Munchkin camp is for children who will be aged four or younger on October 1st – these children will be eligible to play in the Pinelanders Under-4 or Under-5 divisions in the Fall.
Children as young as two can register, but they must be out of diapers and ready to learn in an organized program.
The Munchkin program is designed to introduce soccer to younger children in a fun, non-competitive atmosphere. The focus is to work on fundamental skills of the game:
Youth Instructional Program
Times: 5:30 – 8:30 PM Monday to Friday
The Youth Instructional camp is for players who will be aged five to sixteen on October 1st. These are players who will be eligible for the Pinelanders Under-6 and older divisions if they register for our Fall season.
Players will learn in groups corresponding to the Pinelanders co-ed divisions.
This camp will focus on a mix of entry-level technical skill development. We will work in progression to take players’ technical & tactical skills to the next level, with an emphasis on game fundamentals:
