Soccer Camps Holland works with more than five certified coaches, coaches for field players as well as goalkeepers. Our coaches are motivated to practice their sport, they still learn from it and therefore they still get better as a soccer player. Soccer Camps Holland is eager to get as much pleasure from soccer as possible.
Within the soccer training, what is most enjoyable is a situation where the players get the chance to score as well as to defend. We suggest that children up to the age of 10 play on smaller fields than the official full size pitch. On a full size pitch the children will not have much contact with the ball, while contact with the ball is essential in the learning process. When the children play on smaller and narrower fields, they will have more contact with the ball and this will improve their vision within the match.
