Preparing For Soccer Camps Together With Your Kids


By Barbara Price

Kids which likes playing soccer and are members of the school team want their performance in playing to improve. This helps them have more playing time from the coach, play more matches regularly and even contribute more in getting for their club a win. They would become more confident with their improved skills and help get drafter to future school teams.

Achieving this goal can be done through your kids going to camps where qualified coaches will train them and practice the things they learn from them. Soccer camps Calgary are available that they can attend to so choose one that has a good reputation. And if you have chosen one already, help your child in preparing for it specially when this is their first one.

Let them know your plans of going into camping area so they will get ready including going there days before for familiarizing the place better. Ask the management to allow you a tour of the location and show them their lodging and practice areas. Emphasize that anything of importance will not happen at home when they are away.

Show confidence on them that they would excel and thrive at camp because doing so helps them be confident too and increase chances of success. They can learn more concerning themselves, meet new people and try new things there. Discuss with them if you both feel nervous and have them understand how excited you feel for them in experiencing new things.

Start packing together early for avoiding stress and in forgetting things so being this task week before the activity. Check the list that the management has provided on what to bring then fill their bag with these slowly and buy those you lack. If this is done earlier then avoiding unhealthy emotions will not be the only advantage but more time is also available in completing the list.

Advise them in bringing something which will help them feel at home and comfortable even when far from your house such as a pillow, photo or stuffed animal. Set goals together concerning what they plan to achieve during camp such as making new friends or improving soccer skills. When you call them there, ask for progress of these goals every time.

Ready your communication plan with them and discuss the expectations that both of you have about these calls. You are given numerous opportunities in checking up on them while avoiding to jeopardize their camp experience. Make your conversations short so they will be able to get back in making new friends again.

Making new friends to other campers should be encouraged as much as possible because others came from different states or even countries. They can learn about the other campers more including their lives and experience with soccer that are helpful in making connection to others. Encourage having a continued connection with them even when the camp ends.

Have an early sleep on the night before the activity so you are fresh and excited when you wake up. Make plans after the camp ends like dinner. Give this chance for your child to share their memories and accomplishments there.
