British Soccer Camp comes to Sylvan

Four Seasons Park is set to become Little Britain brings in just make sure you park on the right side of the road.

From August 8-12 Sylvan Lake will be hosting Challenger Sport’s British Soccer Camp for the very first year. The camp, which is the most popular soccer camp in North America, brings in some of the best coaches from the United Kingdom to teach kids aged 3-16 the basic tenants and skills of soccer.

Organizer Richard Unsworth is excited to bring this camp to the Town of Sylvan Lake.

“That particular week in Sylvan Lake, we have three coaches for the first year of the program,” Unsworth said. “They will come in and work with the kids on individual skills and training and then we will have a little bit of a World Cup Tournament.”

The kids will also have the opportunity to learn a little bit more of soccer in the UK which Unsworth said is comparable to the way “hockey is in Canada.”

“We will also pass on information about the UK and soccer it is a cultural experience as well,” he said. “It has that unique flavour in that obviously these coaches are coming from theUK.”

Each kid will be assigned and dressed according to a World Cup Team and then begin the day practising and learning “individual, technical work like passing, dribbling and shooting and then learn not just how to do these things, but where and when to use them in a game,” according to Unsworth.

The program also includes a Champion to Character program “which is about respect, responsibility, leadership, teamwork and sportsmanship.”

Unsworth added that “highlighting good examples of sportsmanship is just as important as winning.”

Challenger sports is excited to offer the program in Sylvan Lake and each kid that participates will be grouped based on their age and skill set.

The cost of the camp is between $108 and $216 and you can register your soccer player at If you would like more information, you can contact Unsworth at 1-800-533-9374 or
