BRITISH SOCCER CAMP
Our league is pleased to announce another year of partnership with Challenger Sports to host the week-long British Soccer Camp during the week of June 11-15, 2018 at the Lions Futball Club Pride Park in Schertz. The camp will run Monday through Friday and each child will be coached by a member of Challenger’s British coaching staff flown to the USA exclusively to work on these programs. Challenger’s British Soccer Camp is more than a week of drills and skills. In addition to taking part in a daily regimen of foot skill development (through the 1,000 touches curriculum), technical and tactical practices and daily ‘World Cup’ tournament style plays, each child will be treated to a rich cultural experience and lessons on respect, responsibility, integrity, leadership and sportsmanship.
For further information, please visit www.challengersports.com.

Hosting A Coach
Hosting a coach has become one of the most popular elements of Challenger's British Soccer Camp program. The British coaches on your camp will stay with local families in your community for the duration of the camp week. In return, not only does the family enjoy a unique week learning about the UK, learning about soccer and building lasting friendships with our staff, but the host family will also receive a rebate for hosting a coach.

We would like to thank our members for your support of our league fundraisers. As a non-profit organization, we depend mostly on our registration fees to operate our league. The proceeds from our fundraisers supplement our registration fees, thereby helping reduce our operating costs. In turn, our members benefit from the low registration fee that we offer. Our fundraisers help provide coaches t-shirts and cones for all teams, free coaches certifications, etc. We receive a small portion of the proceeds from donations received from the team photos and custom car window decals. Again, we would like to thank all of our members and friends for your support of our fundraisers. With your support, our league is able to provide an affordable and quality program for several thousand children to enjoy and play recreational soccer!
