Cardinals Soccer Camp Draws Large Crowd


On March 11, 2023, Zach Adams, John Eversole, and some of the Clinton High School Girls Soccer program athletes put on a soccer camp in the gym at the elementary school due to bad weather. Grade levels that could participate in this program were K-2nd, 3rd-5th, and 6th-8th grades. Students paid 10 dollars for an hour to an hour and a half of soccer camp. The original plan was to host it at the Clinton Middle School on the AstroTurf, but it was raining quite heavy at the time of this event. Soccer is usually thought of as a fall and spring sport, so many teams will take the winter and summer seasons off. Youth soccer camps try to fill those gaps by promising continued development in the offseason. And it doesn’t matter how small the gap is! Camps allow for players to recognize areas of weakness and work on them directly, they also allow players to specifically focus on their individual talents and areas of improvement.
Fundamental work is focused more on each individual player rather than a team setting like in most youth soccer practices. These camps also give a different exposer and different coaching style. There was a wonderful turnout at this event, and I would say it was quite the success.
