Kids soccer camp at Leo Palace

by Dave Delgado

Guam - A soccer camp for kid's ages 10 - 17 years old will be held at the Leo Palace Resort starting December 27th through the 31st. The camp will run from 8:30 - 4:30 for a full day at a cost of $199 per week and $159 for a half day of camp, which will run from 8:30-1:30.

"It's just a great time," said Coach Tom Renfro. "We had over 100 players last summer and Leo Palace wants to do it again and we are all for it. It's a great time and the kids might be stuck at home for the next week, Monday through Friday so there's going to be a lot to do at our camp. We are going to get out the wall and practice the bending balls around the wall, bend it like Beckham. We are going to play a lot of fun games that will advance the skill and really it all depends on the players and how much they take out of it."

Helping with the camp will be Eric Soto and Kyle Task who both attend college out in the states back for the holidays lending a hand. The facilities at Leo Palace are the best on island and offer numerous activities to those attending the camp.

Renfro added, "We are going to try to focus the camp to the advance players, so the players 10 years old to 17. I know in the past we've had the younger kids but this time we are going to try and advance the more experienced players here. We are going to have advance fitness training, swimming along with a great lunch provided everyday. We have a morning session starting at about 8:00 am and we go until about 11:30 and then break for lunch. Then we go swimming after that and have a nice relaxing time and then in the afternoon session we will be going into advanced fitness training and that will be inside during the heat of the day. Then we will go outside again in the afternoon and finish off with some games."

Anyone interested in registering for the camp can call Renfro at 637-0714 for more information. The camp was a success during the summer with the kids wanting to go back and train at the world-class facility. He said, "We had some players come back from the camp during the summer and they were just really pleased on how far they had advanced.

"The parents were pleased at how far they had advanced and told me how good the camp made their players over the course of the week."
