Playing sports is a big part of many children’s lives, and that makes us happy. From performing better academically and improved social skills to overall healthier lifestyles, we know there are endless benefits of playing sports as a kid. But did you know that your child can enjoy even more perks when he or she engages in extra sports time during the summer with sports summer camps? And with our summer soccer camps in the Smokies starting right around the corner, now is a great time to learn about those extra perks. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of Smoky Mountain soccer camps for kids:

1. Short and Sweet
Many kids may be in need of a little rest and relaxation during the summer. Luckily, with our 4-day soccer camps, your kiddo with have plenty of time away from history tests and after-school practices even if he or she signs up for one of our Smoky Mountain soccer camps.

Four days is just long enough for your little soccer star to learn skills and improve upon their existing skills with plenty of summer left over to enjoy and relax. And more often than not, we find that players find playing soccer – whether it be at camp or at home in the yard – to be one of the most fun ways they can imagine spending their summer vacation.

2. Summertime ActivityGirls competing in soccer game outside
While you certainly want your kids to enjoy summer vacation, sometimes indulging in cartoons and lazy days on the couch become the main form of entertainment over the summer. Even though kids love their sport, the “out of sight, out of mind” phenomenon often plays out when the season is over and school is out. Our camps are a great way to keep him or her off the sofa and reawaken his or her soccer-loving energy.

This 4-day camp is designed to be lots of fun for young soccer players while also improving speed with a focus on technical development. Players will learn series of drills and receive instruction that can also be put to use at home, too. So the things you child learns during our Smoky Mountain soccer camps can often be repurposed and implemented all summer long.

3. Improved Performance
Imagine the confidence your child would have knowing that he trained towards getting an extra edge on his soccer game over the summer. He would excitedly anticipate taking the field to show off his skill the moment their soccer season began. That’s definitely a sign of a summer break put to good use.

Rocky Top Sports World offers two camps over the summer. Both are designed to challenge campers through game-play situations and competitive drills. The camp is 4-days long and has a natural skills progression made up of instruction on the specific fundamentals of soccer positions and drills designed to simulate game speed performance. Technical development will be the basis of the course. Campers will improve overall and technical skills through plenty of contact with the ball. Both both and girls are invited to register. Lunches are included in the camp fee. Be sure to check out the camps details below:
