About BURY SOCCER CAMP
BURY SOCCER CAMP is back for our third summer in 2019! While the name is new, the faces are not. After working under Coach Gerry DiBartolo and Coach Tim Lee at the Soccer Session Camps since summer 2007 Alex Hargrove and Josh Scotton will carry on providing an exciting and educational experience each summer! Our youth campers get to experience everything the Salisbury University campus has to offer. Plenty of great soccer action plus lunch in the dining hall! Due to updates the pool will not be open for our summer 2019 camps.
The youth camp is open for players of all levels. Whether you are a novice or have been playing for years our goal is to create a engaging environment that challenges players while fostering a continuing love for the game!
The high school camp is designed to help prepare local players for their upcoming high school soccer tryouts and season. Players will be challenged technically and tactically in a competitive environment where fitness will continue to be develop through playing the game.
Both camps will be held on the campus of Salisbury University. For our youth camp this provides the perfect mix of soccer and fun! Players have the opportunity to play on the same fields as our college athletes, eat in the university cafeteria, and swim in the pool!
THANK YOU FOR A GREAT SUMMER!
