The Gonzales Soccer Club has teamed up with Challenger Sports to bring the most popular soccer camp in the country to the area at Cajun Industries Soccer Complex in Gonzales this July

There will be two separate camps offers—one for British soccer skills and the other to learn the Brazilian way.

The British camp will be held July 9-13.

With programs for all ages and abilities, local players have an opportunity to share a fun, positive and educational camp experience centered around a daily regimen of foot skills, moves, juggling, tactical practices and daily tournament play by one of Challenger’s 1,100 International soccer coaches who inspire confidence, happiness and help build self-esteem.

The highlight of the week is the Camp World Cup, adding friendly competition and cultural variety to each day. The daily tournament gives campers the chance to represent a world cup team, with extra points being awarded for making up chants, wearing team colors of their chosen country, creating flags, and learning as much as they can about their chosen country’s culture.

“Our British Soccer summer camps and year-round coaching programs boast an incredible team of coaches from Australia, New Zealand, Holland, Brazil, USA and Canada as well as our traditional team of Brits from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland and Wales,” Challenger Sports Business Manager Nick Rundell said. “This diversity of experiences and cultures reflects the truly global nature of the sport of soccer and we are proud to share the best practices from around the globe with the many players, parents and coaches we work with throughout North America.”

The Brazilian camp will be July 11-15.

With five World Cup titles to their name, Brazil stands alone as the most decorated soccer nation. This summer, aspiring American players will have the opportunity to learn the secrets of their amazing success. Over 150 Brazilian coaches will spend 10 weeks traveling around the United States sharing their soccer knowledge.

Each child will be coached by a member of TetraBrazil’s elite team of Brazilian soccer coaches flown to the USA exclusively for these camps. They will learn techniques and tactics, advanced footwork, new skills and the most effective moves used by top Brazilian players; but also an authentic taste of the flair, passion, and creativity of Brazilian soccer.

Campers warm up to Samba music, learn Portuguese phrases and discover what it is like to grow up and play soccer in a country where the game is treated like a religion.
