2021 LAKE OSWEGO SOCCER CLUB - SUMMER CAMP INFORMATION

After our COVID adjusted 2020 camp season we are anticipating a more normal summer. However, should we need still have to abide by any rules or regulations to operate the camps then we will do so.

Our camps are run by experienced Camp Directors who are veterans of the summer soccer camp scene. They are staffed with local coaches involved in coaching our club teams and high school teams and we also enlist the help of players from local HS programs to ensure there is a good balance in our staff to make sure that each camper has a fun week.

Camp curriculum is designed to allow players the opportunity to develop while playing soccer themed games that teach skills while the players have fun. Typical camp days involve skill style games complimented by scrimmages.

Camp Curriculum

Our camps blend many elements to provide a great experience for as many campers as possible.

Our coaches have a blend of experience ranging from club directors to local high school players to ensure we have coaches who can lead the camp and coaches who interact well with the campers.

We utilize soccer games and exercise that engage the campers and develop their skills without the campers even realizing it.  Then of course the campers spend time playing small sided scrimmage games where they get to use the skills they have been working on.

At lunchtime we entertain the campers with 'joke time' and then daily competitions such as crazy hat, crazy shirt, crazy shorts, and crazy socks!

What you'll need for camp ?!?

Here is a sample email of what we'll typically send out prior to camp.

 

Good afternoon:

Thank you very much for signing up for our soccer camp

Camp starts Monday morning at 9am and will run until 12.30pm.

We will have a NIKE canopy so you should be able to see us.

Each camper should bring with them:

- A soccer ball, soccer cleats, shin guards, packed lunch (we’ll stop for lunch at about 11am), plenty of water, some sunscreen, and a sense of humor.

Please let your child know that it is important they keep their lunches packed away. If they leave food exposed then the crows will help themselves. We don’t mind campers having a quick snack during a water break but just let them know it is important to pack things up.

Each day after lunch we will have a small contest. Monday will be CRAZY SOCK DAY so send the campers along with some CRAZY COLORFUL SOCKS. We'll let the campers know what the contest will be for the next day at each lunch time.

Please see Pete or Charlie (either one should have a clipboard) in the morning when you drop your child/ren off so they will make a note that they are in attendance. At the end of each day we’d like each child to be checked out so please plan on taking a few moments to let the coach with the clipboard know that your child has been picked up safely. We appreciate that you all have busy schedules but please make sure your child/children is/are checked out in the afternoon.

We'll have some water out there in Gatorade coolers so if the kids run out they can fill up.

Over the course of the week the campers will spend time playing specific games that directly teach skills or general games that teach skills indirectly. Either way over the course of the week players will get lots of touches on the ball.

If anyone has any questions please feel free to check in with Fraser (fraser@losc.org).

Thanks,

Fraser and Pete

 
Camp Staff

Our Summer Soccer Camps are directed and organized by LOSC Director of Coaching - Fraser Morrison.  Morrison intially came to the USA in 1995 to work as a Soccer Camp Instructor.  Since then he has been involved in running soccer camps in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and California. Morrison's philospohy on camps is that the players involved should be in a fun environment and they should learn and improve soccer skills without even knowing it.  'We use a variety of different soccer specific and non-soccer specific exercises that allow players to develop a wide variety of individual technical skills' Morrison said when asked for his views on the LOSC Summer Camp experience.

Our camp staff is balanced between USSF A Licensed Coaches (the highest level of coaching license available in the USA) to local players from Lake Oswego and Lakeridge High School's Soccer Program's.  In order to provide balance we will place coaches of different experience with each group.

For 2017 other staff will include but not be limited to Pete Roberts, Louie Jones, Chrissy Rumpakis, Ally Rumpakis, John Martin, and as already mentioned, members of local High School Soccer Program's.

Pete Roberts is USSF A Licensed Coach who has been involved in coaching at the Summer Camps for the past several years.

Louie Jones is a UEFA Licensed Coach who has over 5 years coaching Summer Camps on the West Coast.

Other staff coaches involved have all gone through the Lake Oswego Soccer Club. Many of them either play soccer in college or have played soccer in college.

They are:

Chrissy Rumpakis - LOSC Arete - Oregon State University

Ally Rumpakis - LOSC Storm - Oregon State University

John Martin - LOSC Cyclones - Pacific University (Forest Grove)

 
Camp Description

Our camps are designed to suit soccer players of differing levels.  The games and exercises employed in our daily camp curriculum expose players to the soccer ball as much as possible.  Over the course of the day players will work with a ball and develop their skills in the process without even realising it.

9am - 10.00am - Warm Up - Skills and Games

10.00am - 11.30am - Large Groups for Skills Games

11.30am - 12.10pm - Lunch time/Joke time/Crazy competition time
