The Chatham Cougar Soccer Camp philosophy and goals are to help youth soccer players learn the game of soccer in a fun-filled environment. Our camp is designed to teach the fundamentals and skills of the game of soccer while promoting teamwork, leadership and good sportsmanship. Many of our sessions will involve 1 player -1 ball to maximize touches and keep children engaged.
