2018 HFC Summer Soccer Camps

Welcome to the 2018 Summer Camp 2009-2012 Birth Years Registration!

This camp is open to Girls and Boys ages 7-10.  Players should come to the camp with enthusiasm! These camps will use Play - Train - Play training model. The emphasis will be on the player, PLAYING, and enjoyment of being creative. 

The progression starts with players, playing the game with the structure of a match. Players will be expected to learn more about positional play and follow all soccer rules. Coaches will introduce the topic each day.  Players will be guided to understand the application and importance of the topic as it relates to the game. The staff will address the part of the game we are focusing on with our curriculum with activities that will allow the players to improve while seeing the relevance to the game and their play. The players then get put back into the match to see their progress. 

Owning Your Own Development will give the players a reason to: 

  • Put more effort into soccer 
  • Think more about soccer as THEIR own game 
  • Challenge themselves to improve 
  • Risk failure in an effort to excel 
  • Practice on their own 


July 16-19 5:00pm-8:00pm  (July 20th as a rain date)

Location: Carsins Run Park- 500 Carsins Run Road, Aberdeen MD 21001
