Eastern Teaches Fundamentals to Youth Soccer Players

devito72_4867.jpgEastern's Athletic Department is hosting its annual summer youth soccer camp July 11-15 for girls and boys ages 5-14 of all skill levels. All funds support Eastern's soccer program. 

Greg DeVito, Eastern's head men's soccer coach, and Adam Phaiah, assistant men's soccer coach, are leading the camp along with current and former college soccer players.  "The camp is an excellent way for young players to learn the fundamentals of soccer," said DeVito. "It provides structured curriculum to promote learning and a positive, fun camp experience."

Each camper is receiving technical skill training in dribbling, passing, receiving, shooting and heading. Individual goal-keeper training is also being offered. Campers will play small-sided games involving fewer players on a smaller-sized field, which allows each camper more individual playing time and more exposure to the soccer ball.
