About Us

At YouthKicks Soccer we offer a unique summer camp experience that helps campers of all skill levels (no experience required) improve their soccer ability while also learning valuable life skills that will support them both on and off the field. Our camp prioritizes soccer development but goes beyond the game by integrating life skill sessions that use educational pedagogy and methodology. Our holistic approach focuses on each child and supports them in developing crucial life skills. In a safe and nurturing environment, our camp offers a dynamic blend of soccer development and engaging activities designed to foster skills like collaboration, communication, leadership, and perseverance.

Our Mission

Our mission at YouthKicks Soccer is to provide a summer camp experience that helps campers develop their soccer skills while learning valuable life lessons to take them further both on and off the field. We believe that soccer is the perfect medium to achieve this goal as it promotes collaboration, communication, leadership, and perseverance. We strive to create a supportive and inclusive environment where campers can learn, grow and have fun while improving their soccer skills and developing important life skills.
