Poway Summer Soccer Camp is designed to be a fun soccer experience where players will be taught age and ability appropriate skills in an enjoyable way.

The techniques will be reinforced with exciting games and activities in a relaxed environment. New skills are then put into action in small sided games to full-field scrimmages. In addition to soccer, the campers will make new friends and participate in camp activities. Our camp is a great place for the recreational to competitive soccer player looking for soccer fun.

Each camper, regardless of level, will experience a week of intensive soccer training (passing, dribbling, controlling, and shooting) towards the goal of realizing their potential. Campers will be evaluated on the first day for the purpose of grouping by age and ability for the best camp experience. Our emphasis is on developing a healthy attitude towards competition combining discipline, conditioning, and fun.

At PYSL, we believe that steady improvement and a positive mental attitude are the hallmarks of a good soccer program.

Advanced Camp (ages 13-17) is designed for older players looking for a more challenging camp experience. Campers will continue the development of technical skills as well as tactical awareness.

Volunteers Needed

The Board of Directors of Poway Youth Soccer is looking for volunteers.  As you know we are primarily a volunteer driven organization.  It takes a significant amount of volunteers to provide your children with the best soccer fields, equipment, uniforms and soccer opportunities.  Our Recreational programs are run by volunteer coaches, schedulers, referee coordinators, and field set-up and teardown crews.  It takes a “village” to run a soccer program.  We have volunteer openings in the areas of uniforms, publicity, website updates, Spring Soccer Coordinator, Fall Soccer team formation and many more.  Please contact either me or Ginger to let us know how you can help.  Pam.bickel@gmail.com or powayyouthsoccer@yahoo.com.  Please check the website often to see a listing of our current volunteer needs.
