Why do a July football camp ?
As the summer vacation kicks off, July can be hectic and stressful. There is generally a lot going on but everyone wishes they were on a beach tanning somewhere, or seeing the sights of a new city, or going on a new and exciting hike, or doing any other holiday activity. Planning can become very difficult, so a vacation where everything is taken care of can be a life saver. July football camps are exactly that.
A great advantage of these football camps is the freedom that they give parents. If you can’t take time off work, you can be assured that your child is still having the time of their life improving their football and making new friends. If you want to go on vacation with them, then some football camps offer family packs where you can join your kid for some holiday activities. If you want a non-family holiday, then you can easily drop your child off and then go wherever you want until you need to pick them up the week after. The options are endless !
July, ideal for physical and technical improvement
Wherever the camp takes place, July tends to be a very hot month. In terms of physical development and training, this is ideal. It can be hard to train with the sun making you sweat even more, but as long as the players persevere, then real progress will be made. Athletes improve when they reach their limits and keep pushing, until their limits are no longer their limits. If your child has the right attitude at one of these summer football camps, then they are sure to massively improve.
Summer conditions are also perfect for technical training. The camps will have dribbling and passing drills for example, and the players will be able to notice their improvement as the camp goes on. Shooting in particular is great for training in the summer as it can be a good break to stop from overheating when playing intensely. Pre-season for professional clubs takes place in the summer, so a football camp is the perfect pre-season.
