SoccerMajors

Soccer majors at Kents Hill Sports Camp have every opportunity to develop and improve their skills in a fun and structured environment. Our soccer majors share the same passion for the sport and are eager to learn. Emphasis is placed on the development of our campers’ core soccer skills (shooting, passing, heading), as well as advanced skill training such as formations, off the ball movement, dribbling moves, juggling and goalie techniques. Our program is based on a mix of instruction and drills followed by games, scrimmages, and challenges against other local camps.
Overall, our job at KHSC is to make sure that the girls leave camp as better, more efficient and confident soccer players while allowing them to enjoy the overall camp experience at the same time.
