Youth Summer Soccer Camp

The College of the Canyons men’s and women’s soccer programs are inviting boys and girls in kindergarten through eighth grade to participate in the 2019 Youth Summer Soccer Camp, with two sessions running this summer.

Staffed by coaches, players and alumni from the men’s and women’s soccer programs, the camp offers a high-caliber curriculum that will create a uniquely fun learning environment for players wanting to build and improve their soccer skills.

By combining skill-emphasized training sessions, player-centered drills, scrimmages and small-sided games, the camp’s focus is on player skill development, balance, coordination and endurance, with an emphasis on building confidence in young soccer players.

All participants will receive a COC Soccer Camp T-shirt and soccer ball. Players should bring their shirt and soccer ball to practice each day, while also providing their own cleats, shin guards, soccer socks, sunscreen and water.

Camp sessions will be jointly led by COC men’s soccer head coach Phil Marcellin, COC women’s soccer coach Justin Lundin, as well as a staff of coaches from local high school and club teams.

Swim Camp Registration Open

The College of the Canyons swim & dive program invites swimmers ages 8 to 18 to participate in the 2019 COC Swim Camp with two sessions running this summer.

The camp is open to swimmers who can perform all four competitive strokes (freestyle, back, breast, butterfly) in a group workout environment. Sessions will be led by COC swim & dive head coach Sean Kakumu, his staff of assistant coaches and student-athletes from the college’s record-setting swim & dive program.

Each four-day camp session will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn new techniques, strengthen current skills, and meet new friends. The philosophy of the camp is to create a fun-filled atmosphere that promotes the development of the total swimmer.

The Session 1 camp is open to children ages 8-14 and will introduce the fundamentals necessary for future swim competition and/or a lifetime of recreational swimming.

The Session 2 camp is open to high school swimmers ages 15-18 and will reinforce fundamentals while emphasizing performance, speed, and race strategy, with a goal to push the swimmer to the next level of competition.

Taking grade and age into account, each camper will be evaluated on the first day of camp and placed into a group that will allow them to maximize their opportunity to improve.

Both sessions will involve two workouts a day plus classroom instruction. Session 2 will feature more intense workouts. Each camp session will conclude with an intra-squad meet on the last day where swimmers can apply the knowledge they have learned over the previous week.

The 2019 COC Swim Camp will run during the following dates and times:

Session 1 — June 17-20 – 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Monday through Thursday)
Session 2 — June 24-27 – 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Monday through Thursday)

All meetings will take place in the college’s West P.E. natatorium, located adjacent to the baseball field on the COC Valencia campus. A $175 per player registration fee applies to each session. Campers who register prior to the May 26 early registration date will save $25 per camper (registration must be received by 5 p.m. PST Sunday May 26).

Families with more than one camper can receive a discount of $25 for each additional child that registers by entering the promo code “Cougar2” at registration checkout. All campers will receive a camp T-shirt. A camp photo will also be provided at the end of the weekly session. Swimmers are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle and a snack/light lunch every day.

All proceeds directly support the COC swim & dive program. To register for the 2019 COC Swim Camp, visit the COC Athletics website and complete the online registration form.

Space for this year’s camp is limited. For more information, contact COC swim & dive head coach Sean Kakumu at (661) 362-5894 or sean.kakumu@canyons.edu.
