Volunteering @ Hope Soccer Camp
For the past two weeks I’ve been volunteering as a junior coach at the Hope College Soccer Camp.
The camp is directed by the men’s head coach, Steve Smith and led by some of Hope College’s outstanding players.
Kids (ages 4-14) come from all over Michigan to spend the week learning how to become a better soccer player. Each day has a specific focus like finishing, defending or passing. Typically there is a demonstration and then kids go to their individual teams and work with the Hope players to develop the demonstrated skill. The player / coaches are awesome college students who really care about the kids. I really enjoy being around these guys. They are smart, fun and really talented. So if your looking to develop as a player, be sure to check out The Hope Soccer Camp in Holland, Michigan
By the way, that’s me in the blue Spain jersey down front. It was red, white & blue day and Spain was playing Portugal in the Euro 2012 – so I just had to wear it.
