Last week marked the first of our three UCSB Vacation Day Camps. Over 50 boys and girls ages 5-12 worked hard all week, practicing their footwork, shooting and passing skills. Our future gauchos were divided up into groups based on both age and skill. Additionally, the kids were prepped with tons of World Cup trivia, getting them excited to watch and cheer for their favorite teams.UCSB Men and Women Soccer players, Marshall Carzares, Miranda Cornejo, Ashley Dean, Savannah Francis, Kevin Garcia-Lopez, Ishmael Jome, and Daniel Welsh served as coaches and mentors throughout the week. Having student athletes as coaches enabled the campers to witness the soccer skills of top Division I players.
The second Vacation Camp is underway this week and the third and final camp runs from August 4th-8th at Girsh Park, from 9:00 am-1:00 pm. For more information and online registration, please visit Santabarbarasoccer.com. Walk-up registration is accepted.
