Last year, Matthew Hoppe sponsored over 120 children personally who attended our first annual soccer camp and was also in attendance.  After last year’s success, we are excited to host our second soccer camp from June 3rd to June 5th here in Southern California.  Our goal is to continue to grow the game of soccer for our youth in Orange County, California.

Grace Shipley commented about last year’s camp with Lou Ponsi contributor for Orange County Register in their June 12th 2023 article “Grace said her 13-year-old daughter, Isabella, and 11-year-old son, Zander, were learning life lessons from participating in the camp – not just in athletics but in giving back to their community.”  For 10-year-old Lina, who has been playing since she was 3, free play is simply more fun on all levels.  “I like meeting people and scoring goals,” she said. “Soccer brings out more joy in the world.”

Our goal is to continue to inspire our youth through the beautiful game of soccer by providing resources for them to grow and reach their highest potential on and off the field.  We hope that you will join us this June!
