Penn Legacy Tetra Brazil Camps

 

Penn Legacy is delighted to announce that we have teamed up with Tetra Brazil again for an end-of-summer camp at our Junction Training Center on the week of August 14th-18th. 

It will be a morning camp and will be available to 3 to 5 year olds from 8am to 9am, and for 6 to 14 year olds from 9 to 12pm. 

The 8am camp will be all about introducing our youngest kids to the Brazilian way of learning the beautiful game. The 9am camp will be a little more intense of course, but again will be focused on how the game is played in the most successful and most skillful "football" country in the world!

2017 Real Madrid Foundation Clinic

Real Madrid Foundation is one of the most popular soccer clubs in the world, and for this week, they decided to come here to Lancaster to coach over 130 youth players ages 8-17. Penn Legacy FC is one of 13 U.S. soccer clubs chosen to host the Real Madrid Clinic Foundation. And it doesn't end after this week, 18 Penn Legacy players will be traveling to Spain to train with the Real Madrid Foundation Clinic this August. The coaches at Penn Legacy say they hope this program will continue for many years to come so that more kids will continue to get this opportunity.

          

PL Summer Training 3 Point Plan

INFO...
 
Here at Penn Legacy we have worked hard over the years to offer the very best to our players in the summer months.  We have basically come up with a 3 point plan:
 
  1. REST - We encourage our players to take the month of June off from soccer and rest those weary limbs to allow time for healing and, in many cases, for growing.

  2. CLUB CLINICS (included in your fees) - In July we start back up with our Summer School of Xcellence which is focused on a different topic each night.  We will also have a number of "free play" days where the kids just come out and play with supervision but no actual coaching.

  3. CAMPS - As you may have heard, this summer we are hosting a week-long 
    Real Madrid Clinic.  
    We also have the second year of our goalkeeper specific camp.

POINT 2 - CLUB CLINICS

SUMMER SCHOOL of XCELLENCE
SESSIONS - SSOX
 
For 6 nights over the month of July, we offer top class clinics based on a different topic each night.  Come to all 6, or as many as you can make.  These are a great way to get back into the swing of things after our June break, and there is always a buzz of excitement around the summer SoX sessions.  They will be held at JTL on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through July, starting on the 11th.  For the first 75 mins we will work with our u9 through u13 players, and then for the second 75 mins we bring in the u14s and older.  Each session will have different coaches at different stations and the players are rotated through so that they gave a slightly different exercise and voice each time. 
 
Remember these sessions are highly encouraged but optional, and ARE included in your fees.
 
 

PENN LEGACY PLAY DAYS
 
On August 1st and 2nd, we will provide a supervised but unstructured environment where the kids arrive, they are randomly sorted into teams, and they just play pickup games.  The games are based on times and age groups that we use for Summer SoX sessions. 
 
We believe it is very important to provide these opportunities just to mix things up and allow the game itself to teach the kids.  The simple enjoyment of playing with new kids, with no "coaching" or expectations can be great for a kid's development, and that is the environment we are trying to create with our Play Days. 
 
Again, these are completely optional and no charge.
