SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The Santa Clara men's and women's soccer programs will join forces this winter to host co-ed Christmas Camp for age 6-12. Two super skills camp sessions will be offered along with a goalkeeper camp from Dec. 22-30.

The Mission of the Santa Clara Soccer Camps is to develop the American youth soccer player through the SCU Soccer Philosophy. The philosophy of positive teaching by role-models provides a nurturing environment for each player to gain self confidence, self-motivation, and self-discipline. All players are challenged and supported by the curriculum while forming friendships with the coaching staff and fellow players.

The camps will be instructed by associate head women's soccer coach Gregg Murphy, associate head men's soccer coach Eric Yamamoto, women's assistant coach Curtis McAlister and men's assistant coach Rusty Johnson.
