Boys and girls ages 6 to 17 who want to improve their soccer skills are invited to attend Benedictine University’s Spring Break Soccer Camp from March 31-April 4 at the Village of Lisle-Benedictine University Sports Complex. The program is divided into two sessions – 9:00 a.m.-noon and 1:00-4:00 p.m. – and is designed to meet the needs of and challenge every camper. Players are grouped by age and ability. The 10-to-1 player to coach ratio ensures individual instruction. Small sided games are used to teach campers to make correct decisions and perform under pressure. Benedictine soccer coaches Robyn Serge and Rob Kettle conduct the camp. Serge, who led the Benedictine women to a 10-5-1 record this fall, holds a national coaching diploma from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. Kettle is a former head coach at California University and holds a United States Soccer “A” coaching license. Campers should bring shorts, T-shirt, water bottle, soccer shoes, shin guards and their own soccer ball. Each item should be labeled. The fee is $125. Family and team discounts are available. For more information, call Kettle at (630) 829-6165, email rkettle@ben.edu or visit http://estores.salliemae.com/cgi-bin/mivavm?sh010/store/merchant.mvc+Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=BUER&Category_Code=CAMPS.
