    Description: The goal of our soccer program is to meet every single player where they are and challenge them to work harder, faster, and with more precision on the ball—so that they develop and return home to their teams with more ability and passion.

    Athletes receive ongoing instruction and frequent feedback from highly-qualified coaches who are on the field at every session. Athletes have a ball at their feet during a large part of every session and get hundreds, and, sometimes, thousands of touches a day. Coaches focus on fundamentals like ball control, passing, shooting, and first touch; as well as more advanced attacking and defending techniques. Regardless of ability, every player is pushed to the edge of their game so they improve as much as possible. 

    All of this is accomplished in a positive and fun environment as students experience the excitement, joy, and freedom found in playing soccer. Players should have basic soccer experience, wear appropriate soccer gear each day (t-shirt, shorts, long socks, and shin guards), and bring a soccer ball. In the event of rain, campers will play indoors and be introduced to futsal, the native game of Brazil.

    Description: Camp KO Flag Football is the perfect program for your young athletes who want a complete introduction to America's Game or for those who simply want to brush up on their skills in preparation for league play. Through our 'skill of the day' campers will learn skills on both sides of the ball including the core components of passing, catching, and de-flagging or defensive positioning - all presented in a fun & positive environment. 

    In the game of flag football, teams run or pass the ball downfield in order to score a touchdown. The primary difference in flag football is that it is a “no contact” game. Instead of tackling the ball carrier, defensive players attempt to pull the flags off the ball carrier’s belt. The program is designed for your child to build on performance and ability throughout the week without the same risk of injury as tackle football. At all levels, our flag football program is geared toward developing your child’s love for the game, as well as teaching sportsmanship values that extend far beyond the playing field. The week concludes with the Camp KO Sports Bowl, giving participants a chance to showcase their skills on the gridiron!

    Description: New to schedule in 2020 is Camp KO Flag Football is the perfect program for your young athletes who want a complete introduction to America's Game or for those who simply want to brush up on their skills in preparation for league play. Through our 'skill of the day' campers will learn skills on both sides of the ball including the core components of passing, catching, and de-flagging or defensive positioning - all presented in a fun & positive environment. 

    In the game of flag football, teams run or pass the ball downfield in order to score a touchdown. The primary difference in flag football is that it is a “no contact” game. Instead of tackling the ball carrier, defensive players attempt to pull the flags off the ball carrier’s belt. The program is designed for your child to build on performance and ability throughout the week without the same risk of injury as tackle football. At all levels, our flag football program is geared toward developing your child’s love for the game, as well as teaching sportsmanship values that extend far beyond the playing field. The weekends with the Camp KO Sports Bowl, giving participants a chance to showcase their skills on the gridiron!
