The camp will run from Monday, March 21 to Thursday, March 24 at Camp Geneva in Fruitland Park, Florida, approximately one hour northwest of Orlando.
During twice daily soccer training sessions, Hamm, Lilly, Hoch and Kelly, and their coaching staff will hold twice daily training sessions where girls will be challenged in game-like situations. Off the field, athletes will enjoy a private lake, pool, beautiful camp setting and fun elective and evening activities. Camp enrollment is limited to 150 girls, ages 10 - 17.
The Spring Break camp follows on the success of TeamFirst and BSA’s sold out 2014 and 2015 overnight camps at BSA’s Otis, Massachusetts facility.
“When we first arrived at the Berkshire Soccer Academy, we didn’t know what to expect since we had never run an overnight camp," said Hamm. "By the time we left, we had embraced the unique combination of soccer and traditional camp. Our second summer was even better. The combination of intense soccer instruction and competition, trying new activities and living in cabins with girls from all over was fantastic. The girls improved their soccer as much as we’ve ever seen. More importantly, they grew more mature, confident and independent. It seemed only logical to extend this successful concept to another season, so that we can offer it to more soccer-loving girls.”
Camp Geneva is located in Fruitland Park, Florida, approximately one hour’s drive from the Orlando International Airport. The camp’s 100 acres border a private, 20 acre lake and feature several large playing fields as well as large indoor buildings that can accommodate evening play.
