Harker’s elite summer soccer camp, one of its most popular summer sports programs, provides a comprehensive, fun and supportive environment for soccer players from a wide range of ages and skill levels. Enthusiasts in grades 2-12 will engage in daily activities including Futsal, psycho-motor training and full- and half-court games, in addition to stations that emphasize key soccer skills such as passing, receiving, dribbling and shooting.
To ensure that the camp appeals to a as many players as possible, campers are grouped by order of their age, playing ability and gender, and are taught a new age-appropriate skill every day, which they then practice and integrate into daily game play.
This year, to better meet the needs of individual players, camps are being offered separately at two of Harker’s San Jose campuses. Players ages 10-16 will be assigned to the Harker upper school campus at 500 Saratoga Ave., and players aged 6-9 will attend the camp the middle school campus, located at 3800 Blackford Ave.
This camp will be held in three sessions: June 15-19, July 6-10 and July 13-18. Each day begins at 8:30 a.m. with a warm-up session and ends at 11:30 a.m. with small-sided games.
Harker varsity soccer coach and two-time UCLA MVP awardee Shaun Tsakiris will head up the camp, bringing with him a team of dedicated and highly qualified coaches. A veteran of four NCAA tournaments, Tsakiris played professionally for the United Soccer League’s Rochester Rhinos from 2002-06.
