IMG_8861Campers will take part in an intensive soccer program in which each player receives special attention and help according to individual needs. Our main goal is to develop ball control skills, team play, and "soccer sense" so that each player can become more knowledgeable and better able to apply these concepts to game situations. The philosophy of the Camp - improve through hard work while having fun - permeates each camp session as it has for the past 35 years.

Colby's winningest soccer coach, Mark Serdjenian was the men's varsity coach since 1976. In 1990 he was named New England Coach of the Year and in both 1990 and 1993 he garnered Maine Collegiate Coach of the Year honors. This will be Coach Serdjenian's last summer as camp director, as he has stepped down as men's soccer coach.

The camp is coed with separate league play for high school girls and boys. The middle school age group play is girls and boys playing together. 

Skills Covered:
  • Ball Control
  • Team Play
  • "Soccer Sense"
