A new camp for middle school girls will run August 5 to 9 this summer, focusing on soccer and leadership skills. Sponsored by the Putney Soccer Club, the camp is open to girls who are completing grades 6, 7 or 8 this spring and will be held on the grounds of Hilltop Montessori School in Brattleboro, VT.
The coaching staff will be drawn from among high school soccer coaches at Brattleboro Union High School and The Putney School.
Camp participants will spend a week playing soccer and developing their leadership skills as they get to know other girls in the Brattleboro area. They will spend mornings and early afternoons honing their technical skills and developing their fitness, positioning, and vision for the game.
Over the course of the week, the girls will also be challenged through soccer training and relationship building as they brainstorm ways to impact their local community. They will identify their strengths, set goals for the coming fall within academics, sports, and their family lives, and create an action plan to help the community.
