Preparing Together With Your Kids For Soccer Camps

By Barbara Price

Kids who like playing soccer and a member of their school team wants to improve their performance when playing. This helps them be chosen by their coach to play regularly on matches and contribute more for their club to win. Their improved skills would also make them more confident and could help them in getting into the team in their future schools.

Achieving this goal could be done by having your kids go into camps where they will be trained and have practices under the supervision of a qualified coach. There are some soccer camps Calgary which are available for your kids to attend to and a reputable one must be chosen. After choosing though, preparing for it is needed specially when this is the first time your child will have.

Get them ready by letting them know the plans on going into the camping area and you could drive them there days before to help them familiarize the surroundings. You can ask the management to have a tour and show them where they would be staying and practicing. Emphasize that nothing important will happen at home that they would miss.

Show your confidence of them thriving and excelling at the camp which helps them to more likely succeed there. They can meet new people, try new things and learn more about themselves there. If they or you feel nervous then talk about these emotions with them and let them understand that you are also excited for them to have new experiences.

Start packing early, even weeks before, to avoid being stressed and forgetting some things and do this together. Check the list of what to bring provided by the management and slowly fill their bag and buy those you do not have. Doing this early will not only avoid those unhealthy emotions but give you time to visit the store when needed.

Advise them to bring something that would help them become comfortable and feel at home even away from your house such as a photo, stuffed animal or pillow. Set goals together on what they plan on achieving during the camp. Ask them their progress on their goals, like their soccer skills or new friends made, every time you call upon them.

Have a plan of communication ready and discuss this with your child so they would be clear about what the expectations are. Many opportunities will be given to you for checking them in without their camp experience being jeopardized. Have short conversations with them through cellphone so they could go back into making new friends.

Encourage them to make new friends as plenty as possible with other campers because some are from different countries and states. They could learn more regarding the lives and the experience in soccer that other campers have which helps them in connecting with various kinds of people too. Encourage to keep ways on contacting their new found friends.

Get your child and yourself an early sleep the night before so you will arrive at the venue with great attitude and excitement. Make plans for dinner or something to do with them after the camp. This would be a great opportunity to allow your child share all their accomplishments and memories.
