The soccer camp, in conjunction with El Segundo Recreation & Parks and AYSO, took place from Monday, June 18th to Friday, June 22nd with half day and full day options for South Bay youth.
The soccer camp was broken into groups of age brackets with UK coaches assigned to each group. From soccer drills to mini-games, South Bay kids embellished in fun whilst learning crucial skills derived from UK International’s advanced programs.
One of UK International’s coaches, Neil Corrigan, shares “we’re trying to develop the players – it’s a summer camp so we want to make sure they’re having fun.”
First-time camper, Charles Hedding from El Segundo shares his favorite part of the camp: “doing all the shooting drills and all the skills drills” and wasn’t hesitant to recommend that other kids from El Segundo attend future soccer camps from UK International.
