Cavan FC Sports CampPowered by Crestwood Edge
The Cavan FC Sports Camp (Powered by Crestwood Edge) is a new camp starting in the summer of 2022. It is a community partnership with Maple Leaf Cavan FC (MLCFC) Soccer Club and the Crestwood Edge program.
Programs will run for 1 week sessions and be offered 4 times throughout the summer.
Soccer will be a big part of the camp, however, campers will have the opportunity to try a variety of sports throughout the week. We want campers to have fun, develop new friendships and advance their fundamental movement skills – throwing, catching, jumping, striking, running, kicking, and wheeling.
Campers will play small sided games to expand their soccer skills for about half the day. The remainder of the time will be filled with activities to grow their catching, striking, wheeling, and jumping, like bench ball, baseball, basketball, strikeball, cricket, capture the flag, various relays and ultimate.
Our camp will have two lead counselors. These counselors have tons of soccer experience and experience working with youth. In addition to this, we will have a variety of other leaders who have a sports background and are a part of our Crestwood Edge program. We will also have a teacher from Crestwood on site at all times to assist in programming throughout the week.

1. Does the camp only focus on soccer?
No, although the focus will be soccer we recognize the importance of providing children the opportunity to explore and learn all fundamental movement skills by playing small-sided games because games teach and are motivational. Campers will play small sided games to expand their soccer skills for about half the day. The remainder of the time will be filled with activities to grow their catching, striking, wheeling, and jumping, like bench ball, baseball, basketball, strikeball, cricket, capture the flag, various relays, ultimate, and other Low Organized Games (LOG’s).
2. Is the camp outdoors all day?
Yes a large chunk of our days will be outdoors on the soccer fields, so come prepared. However, we do have use of the school gymnasiums, cafeteria and classrooms. This is great when we want to focus on indoor activities, in case of rain, or during extreme heat.
3. Will the camp be the same each week?
The general program will be similar each week. Some activities, other than soccer, may change slightly. Our counselors will target soccer activities to the level of the campers.
