WCC, Atlas Futbol Club offer soccer camp and coaching clinic
Waubonsee Community College in conjunction with the Atlas Futbol Club is offering a soccer camp and coaches clinic from Friday, June 14 through Sunday, June 16. A camp for boys and girls age 8 through 13 will be held from 9:00 a.m. until noon each day on Waubonsee’s soccer field at the Sugar Grove campus. Another camp for boys and girls age 14 through 19 will simultaneously be held 9:00 a.m. until noon each day at the Sugar Grove Sports Complex located at 901 Wheeler Road. The coaching clinic will be held from 4:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. each of those days on the Chiefs’ pitch. If necessary due to inclement weather, an additional session will be added on Monday, June 17.
Instructors for the camps include Waubonsee Head Coach Brett Suhayda and his assistant coaches Patrick Mitchell, Gibran Rodriguez and Bill Suhayda, along with Atlas Futbol Club’s Director Prof. Juan Manuel Duran Gutierrez, instructor’s Gerardo Hernandez Rios and Anselmo Romero De La Mora, and coaches Jose Quiroga and Seberiano Bravo.
The 8-13 camp will focus on basic passing, shooting and ball skills, with introduction to specific player positioning. The 14-19 camp will emphasize intermediate and advanced passing, shooting and ball skills, with strategic player positioning. The coaching clinic will be equivalent to a C license level course for U.S. youth soccer, and certified by FIFA and FMF. The cost for both of the three-day camps is $45.00 each, and the fee for the coaching clinic is $150.00 for each participant.
