Guam - Soccer kids from around the island will have the chance to learn more about the sport at the LeoPalace Soccer Camp. Tom Renfro will be conducting the camp with the help of some former national team coaches and current national team players. The camp will have two sessions with the first starting June 7-11 and the second session running from the 14th through the 18th. Kids ages 7 to 14 are encouraged to come out beginner or not to enhance their skills at the world class facility. 

Renfro told KUAM Sports, "I will be doing the camp directorship and I will be getting some national team players and former national team coaches to hopefully help out. We are going to be swimming and we are also going to be providing a restaurant quality lunch so we are going to have a full day of fun soccer activities. We encourage both the beginner and the advance player. We will be breaking up into two sections so we will have something for everyone and it's going to be an intensive great week with a lot of fun."

The camp offers professional instruction, video skill analysis with different drills to work on ball handling, heading, goal keeping, tactical games along with some skill games.

"We try to go a skill a day, and will be covering dribbling and for example we will be doing some of the moves like Cristiano Renaldo's famous scissors and double-scissors," said Renfro. "We will be doing moves like Maridonis famous spinner or tornado. We will be showing you how to do the move and showing you where on the field to do it. We will be showing you different types of moves like if there is a defender on your back or there's a defender on your side or if there is a defender that you are facing to do separate moves. So we are going to be going into some advance type training but then for the beginner we are going to be showing you how to keep the ball close and we are going to be showing you how to shield and how to keep somebody away.

"Then we will be going over kicking techniques, both with the inside and outside of the foot. We are going to be going over ball control, which is some of the web traps with the inside of the foot, outside of the foot and sole of the foot, etc."

If you would like to enroll your kid into the camp call LeoPalace at 471-0001, Extension 4001 or call Renfro at 637-0714.
