Twenty year ago, Nancy Slocum started a camp with 100% focus on developing female soccer players. Slocum Soccer School began as a girls-only camp with a predominantly female coaching staff and remains so to this day. Early in Nancy’s career she noticed that girls were mostly just an add-on at other soccer camps. She wanted to establish a camp where the sole focus was the development of female soccer players and she has stayed true to that mission all these years! Since those early days, Kate Grant – LSRHS Girls Varsity Soccer Coach, and Caitlin Pickul – Assistant Women's Soccer Coach at Holy Cross, have joined forces with Nancy, and together they have established two components to Slocum Soccer School:
SLOCUM DAY CAMP: August 6–10 (Girls Entering 3rd-9th Grades, Concord Academy)
Our goal is to inspire achievement by example and by creating a challenging yet fun learning environment. By the end of the week, our aim is for participants to not only be a noticeably better soccer player but also to have developed close connections with her coaches and teammates, feel more confident and self-assured, and be even more excited about playing soccer. A local treasure, it's no wonder many families plan their summer vacations around the one week we hold our day camp.
SLOCUM HIGH SCHOOL: June 11 – August 1 (Girls Entering 9th-12th Grades, Mondays & Wednesdays, 5:00-7:30pm ,Concord Academy
Slocum High School Prep is an 8-week, 15-session program designed to progressively build fitness and soccer skills in preparation for varsity high school tryouts. Our goals are to prepare players physically and mentally for the rigors of high school varsity tryouts, reduce the incidence of injuries (in particular ACL tears and, to the degree possible, concussions) and develop the knowledge and skills necessary for players to continue training on their own. The program is the result of extensive research and training as well as decades of coaching experience at the college and high school levels.
