Half Day Camp
This introductory soccer camp for Boys and Girls ages 5-13 has two half-day options available from 9:00 AM—12:00 PM or 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM. The main objective is to teach basic skills and fun soccer-related games to play with parents and friends.
Full Day Camp
This option, available to Boys and Girls ages 5-13, is from 9:00 AM—4:00 PM. Each group is divided by age and ability. Each camper will be taught fundamental soccer skills through activities that will lead to improved performance and further enjoyment of the game. The campers will focus on technical development with individual and small group activities/games as well as be exposed to tactical ideas using various small and large sided games.
Drop-Off / Pick-Up / Parking
Campers should arrive at St. Ignatius by 8:30 AM on Monday, July 25th. On all other days, morning drop off times are between 8:40 AM and 9:00 AM. Half-day campers will be released at 12:00PM. Afternoon half-day campers should arrive around 12:45pm, and will begin camp at 1pm. Full Day campers will be released at 4:00PM.
The camp check-in and training area will be the softball fields just south of Roosevelt Ave. Due to other camps in the area we will most likely have two drop-off/pick-up points: 1) Just south of Roosevelt road on Monroe, just behind the YMCA, 2) Just south of Roosevelt Rd. on Blue Island. In terms of parking it will be our suggestion to parents who would like to watch their children during the day to park at the UIC Lot which is located on the North Side of the street at Roosevelt and Monroe, there is also metered street parking located directly on Roosevelt.
A more specific schedule and details will be included in the emailed confirmation letter. All confirmation details will be sent via email. A VALID EMAIL ADDRESS MUST be provided at the time of registration.
