Friday Harbor FC (FHFC) and Island Rec formed a new partnership and this summer will be offering two new youth soccer camps: Western Washington University Summer Soccer Camp and Summer Soccer Technical Training with Coach Van.
Western Washington University Soccer Camp: This camp will provide players a unique opportunity to receive individual instruction from the 2016 NCAA DII National Champs, Western Washington University Women’s soccer coaches and players right here on the island. This co-ed camp is designed for players of all levels, ages 5-15 who want to learn and improve their fundamental soccer skills in a fun and encouraging environment. Focus will be on individual skill development and small group tactical decision making. Camp will be located at the new soccer field, John O. Linde Community Park.
In addition to the player camps, WWU coaching staff, under the leadership of Travis Connell, will host a coaching clinic for current or future FHFC coaches.
