CHICAGO -- This summer, take your soccer skills to the next level while learning alongside one of the most renowned U.S. Soccer forwards to play the sport -- Arlington Heights native and 17-year professional Brian McBride.
McBride's Attacking Soccer Academy announces its 2011 Summer Camps schedule, with locations in Arlington Heights (June 20-24), Glen Ellyn (July 18-22) and Lincolnshire (July 25-29). Camps are for boys and girls, ranging from 8 years old to high school-aged participants.
"I'm looking forward to this summer's academy camps," McBride's Attacking Soccer Academy President Brian McBride said. "These camps will incorporate the drill-based classes that I have, with fun shooting games and competitions throughout the week. My goal is to help make each and everyone in the camp a better attacking player, no matter what age your child is."
The two-hour, five-day sessions provide a foundation for participants to excel in the attacking side of soccer. This fun and exciting environment helps your child improve at scoring goals, and helps his or her teammates improve offensively.
"At the younger ages, we will focus on the foundation of a good attacking player, while building on those foundations for the older players," McBride said. "I will ask all players to challenge themselves, while making sure we provide a challenging and fun atmosphere. I hope to see you at one of the camps this summer."
Camp participants receive a McBride's Attacking Soccer Academy T-shirt. At the conclusion of Friday's session, the academy will have a pizza party, and parents are invited to join their kids for food and a chance to win raffle prizes.
