OBJECTIVE: To promote the development of young soccer players by providing progressive instruction of basic soccer techniques and tactics within the spirit of fair play. In accordance with the North Country Soccer philosophy our focus will be on developing the youth's growth in mind, body and spirit. Individual skills will be developed by utilizing the principle of one ball to one person; a solid foundation of ball control skills will be used in individual sessions, small groups and game situations.

STAFF: Coordinator Angela Figallo McShane will be joined by local league and collegiate soccer players, varsity soccer alumni & high school players. Brent Detamore will serve as the NCS Camp Director for the 4th summer; he is licensed by the United States Soccer Federation with a National E and a National F license. Brent is a former collegiate player, has played on several club teams internationally and is currently the head coach of Profile School's Varsity Men's Soccer team. Brent plays local pick up soccer and on summer league teams. Local Coaches serve as Division Leaders who oversee team groupings. A 6:1 player:staff ratio is provided with staff reflecting both male & female populations. This incorporates the North Country Soccer & Olympic Development Training skills & philosophy of fair play.

CITs: Our counselors in training (CIT) have experience participating in North Country Soccer camp and are working towards becoming a counselor. CITs must be entering 6th grade or older to be eligible. CIT's are enthusiastic about soccer, enthusiastic about working with younger players and are proud to serve their community. CIT's will be rewarded with a fantastic experience in taking the initiative to help younger community members and community service hours for their time.

COUNSELORS: Counselors must be at least three grades older than the campers. They have served at least two years as a CIT. In addition to participating in North Country Soccer camp, counselors have shown their ability to lead drills properly and are able to create positive experiences for younger players.
