Central Soccer Camp for 4-12 year olds July 23rd-27th, 10am-11:30am (at Jimmy Lee)
Central soccer camp is a camp for youth at any skill level in soccer 4-12 years old. Central players (including incoming players) act as the coaches in this camp and help grow the sport in the neighborhood and city. This is a great opportunity for Central soccer players to share their knowledge and love of soccer with kids in St. Paul. The campers learn to love soccer and look up to the Central players as role models. If you know any kids who might be interested please have them contact the Oxford Community Center to sign-up.
Captain's Practices: July 30th - August 3rd 9-11am and August 6th - August 10th 9-11am at Griffin Stadium.
Captain’s practices are important pre-season training sessions run by the 2018 captains (Abby Celander, Mae Guetschow, Reenie Sullivan, and Lydia Wilkie). Players will work on conditioning and game preparation for the season. This is a great opportunity for incoming players to develop relationships with their soon-to-be teammates and classmates. The captains and returning players make everyone feel welcome and part of the Central soccer community.
