The Godfrey Parks and Recreation Department offers a youth soccer league for children in grades K-8. The fundamentals of the program are to have fun, build sportsmanship and learn basic soccer skills through team practice and league play. Practice will begin in August with an eight week season of game play beginning in September. Most games are scheduled on Saturday mornings, with an occasional week night game. All games will be held at Glazebrook Park. Leagues will be broken down by grade level: K-1, 2-3, 4-6, 7-8.

British Soccer Camp

THE BRITISH ARE COMING!  The number one youth soccer company in the United States, Challenger Sports, has been invited back to hold one of their nationwide British Soccer training camps right here in Godfrey.

The Godfrey Parks and Recreation Department and Challenger Sports have teamed up to host the week long British Soccer camp during the week of July 23rd at Glazebrook Park.

 Each child will be coached by a member of challenger’s British coaching staff flown to the USA exclusively to work on these programs. This camp is just one of 3000 that Challenger Sports are running throughout the US and Canada for a record breaking 120,000 boys and girls of all ages.

Challenger has become the largest soccer camp provided in North America by combining consistently high quality, age specific soccer instruction, along with equally important elements of character, cultural, and nutritional education.

Each day the children will practice and master new individual skills and understand small group and team tactics through Challenger’s innovative camp curriculum. Campers will also scrimmage each day in the always popular Camp World Cup.

The Challenger Coaching staff believes that teaching silky soccer skills is only a part of the process of education young athletes. The coaches will also take time out of the busy weekly schedule to teach lessons on Respect; Responsibility; Integrity; Sportsmanship and Leadership and discuss how these core values relate to soccer, family and school. 

The most popular part of each camp is the Camp World Cup. The coaches use this daily tournament to teach the players about life, customs and traditions of other countries. The campers are asked to make up cheers, bring flags, dress up and learn as much as they can about the country they represent.

The Godfrey Parks and Recreation Department is offering British Soccer camp sessions the week of July 23-27 for the following ages:

First Kicks Ages 3-4
9-10 am
Mini Soccer Ages 4-6
10:15 am - 12:15 pm
Half Day Camp Ages 6-9

Half Day Camp Ages 10-14

Teams are also welcome to attend and receive a week of focused instruction to prepare them for the fall season.
