Campers participate in drills and exercises designed to improve skills while having fun. Offense, defense and goalie training are covered each day. Agility and flexibility are emphasized as we prepare campers for competitive league play.
LINX Soccer Camp utilizes three beautifully maintained athletic fields at our Dana Hall Campus in Wellesley, MA, as well as a regulation-sized High School soccer field. Our coaching staff boasts elite coaches who help campers advance their game to the next level while instilling an appreciation for team, spirit and sportsmanship.
Campers are divided into age-appropriate groups and skills training is designed to be fun and challenging. Each week includes mini-tournaments, swim periods and other fun traditional camp activities.
Our camp curriculum breaks down fundamental skills into the building blocks necessary to be an effective player. Skills topics will include:
Each day will also include a skills challenge to see who's the best of the best!
Days at LINX Camps are typically spent laughing and learning with friends! LINX Soccer Camp includes three daily soccer intensives, a lunch period, a swim period (including lessons from trained LINX Swim Instructors who implement our safe, fun-based, non-stress approach to teaching), and a bonus camp activity period.
While campers are immersed in sports sessions for half the day, they also have the opportunity to interact with non-soccer camp friends during opening and closing ceremonies, as well as lunch. Our popular camp-wide activities help us to build a sense of camp community.
Many campers choose LINX Soccer Camp for multiple sessions to sharpen their skills. Some complement that with a week in another LINX Sports Camp or a week in an LX Sports Camp for a more intense sports focus. You may also add a General Camp or Specialty Camp to experience all LINX Camps has to offer!
Rhys Thomas brings soccer and IT expertise along with his much loved British accent and fun loving attitude back to LINX Camps for a second summer, as Soccer and IT Camps Coordinator for Summer 2018. He is a graduate of The University of Sheffield (South Yorkshire, England) with a BA in Business Management with Employment Experience. He’s been a passionate soccer player since the age of 6 (playing every chance he gets), led training sessions, ran competitions at school, and was the captain of his team for many years. During the non-summer months, Rhys worked as a Project Manager in a team of web designers and developers, fine-tuning his leadership skills. Teamwork is the key to his success both in and out of work, and a vital part of working at LINX.
Rhys’ proven ability to engage the kids in fun, learning, and all-around good sportsmanship is complemented by his personal mantra, “giving your all is far more important than winning.” Like his role model Maya Yoshida, a Southampton soccer player, you can count on Rhys to give his best and set an example. “So many soccer players these days have a big ego and think they’re bigger than the team, but Maya just keeps his head down, works hard for the team and always steps in when he’s needed. He’s a prime example of what all professional sports players should strive to be like, and I always try my best to work and give my all for my team in the same way.” Rhys looks forward to sharing his passion for soccer and encouraging campers to love the game as much as he does.
