Youth Learn Fundamentals at Eastern's Soccer Camp

Written by Christopher Herman

sports soccer camp.JPGWillimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University's Athletic Department will host its annual summer youth soccer camp from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., July 9-13. The clinic is for girls and boys ages 5-14 of all skill levels. Tuition is $200. All funds will support Eastern's soccer program.
The goal of the camp is to provide each camper with technical skill training in dribbling, passing, receiving, shooting, and heading. Individual goal-keeper training will also be available. 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.

Greg DeVito, Eastern's head men's soccer coach, and Adam Phaiah, assistant men's soccer coach, will lead the camp, along with current and former college soccer players. DeVito was the 2007 Little East Conference (LEC) Coach of the Year and Phaiah was the 2007 Thomac Kruseski Young Coach of the Year.

 "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."
