Dragon Elite Co-ed Soccer Day Camps

The Dragon Elite Soccer Day Camp is designed for players entering grades 1-8 by Bradley Sellar, the Glenelg Country School Boys Varsity Soccer Coach, to promote individualized learning of techniques and skills. Campers will enjoy games, structured practices, and World Cup tournaments, ensuring maximum participation and fun. They will also learn advanced technical skills and develop an understanding of individual and group tactics.

Each player will receive an individual feedback form from the coaches to let parents know how they developed over the session and what they can do at home to continue to improve their skills.
