This year, Soccer Magic will be held at our beautiful Jeanette Altman Frieden Sports Complex. Now in its 26th year, Soccer Magic is committed to developing and inspiring young, enthusiastic players. We share our passion for the game in the spirit that some campers may one day step onto the playing field in front of thousands of screaming fans. The success of our national teams are turning this dream into reality. Soccer Magic strives to build every camper’s knowledge and love of the game within an exciting new soccer era, all while maintaining a fun and challenging environment! Soccer Magic. Embrace the MAGIC this summer! Soccer Magic will take place May 29-June 1 and Jun 4-8.
We encourage players to enroll in both weeks of camp (June 5-9 and June 12-16) for maximum benefit. All training will be conducted at the CSJCC facilities. Daily camp events include two instructional practices, tournament games, soccer films, supervised free swim, and afternoon snacks. Soccer Magic’s staff will challenge and develop players by emphasizing:
- Technical and tactical training
- Small-sided and game-like situations
- Teamwork and sportsmanship goals
- Personal attention, grouping campers by age and skill level
