My boys are doing their first sports camp this summer.  British Soccer hosts a Challenger clinic in various cities across the US. Our town just happens to be one of them, surprisingly!

Local families host British coaches that come run the camp for our kids. Interestingly, the host family for our group is just one street over from us.  The morning camp hours are mostly fun and games, but our boys are taking a special after hours clinic with the coaches.  5 kids registered for the “Golden” clinic, but since 3 were no shows the boys are getting semi-private lessons.  This has been great!

They’ve been learning ball handling skills, agility training, and how to outsmart their opponents with fancy footwork. Georgia decided that this was a great week to hit the 90’s. The boys are absolutely toast by the end of camp that all we can do is take a quick shower and go to the community pool.  These boys are filthy and roasted by the end of the day.  Not one ounce of energy is left to play with the neighborhood kids.  That is saying something.

Tomorrow is Wacky Wednesday so I might just bring my camera along to see what happens.

Linking with Wednesdays Around the World and Black and White Wednesday.

  2. What fun for your boys! It seems that often kids don’t mind the heat if they are involved in a game like this. Do you join them in the pool to cool off ? 🙂

  4. Wow – that’s great. Definitely an experience they will never forget. Wait until they write their paper in the fall about all the cool things they did over the summer – I’m sure this will be the highlight.
