April 7, 2011
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) -
The UNLV men's and women's soccer programs are excited to announce their 2011 summer camp schedules. A total of five camp sessions will be held this summer at Peter Johann Memorial Field and other locations throughout Las Vegas.
UNLV will offer a great line up of summer camps which will include two evening camps, two full-day camps, and one half-day camp session. All camp sessions are offered for boys and girls, ages 5-13. At each camp, campers will learn the skills needed to help them get to the next level, along with a camp t-shirt and ball. All skill levels are welcome.
Each camp will be under the direction of men’s and women’s soccer head coaches, Rich Ryerson and Jennifer Klein. Coach Klein has finished her first year as the head coach of the UNLV women’s soccer program. Klein was promoted after serving the past three seasons as an assistant coach for the squad. In addition, Klein has coached several local, state and Regional ODP teams. Rich Ryerson also recently completed his first season as the head coach of the Men’s Soccer program at UNLV. He took over the helm of the Rebels after spending the past two years as an assistant coach under former UNLV coach Mario Sanchez. He is also the Nevada State Director of Coaching. Also on staff this summer is Paul Karver and Katie Burton, UNLV women’s assistant coaches, as well as, Liam Connors, UNLV men’s assistant coach. Joining the coaching staff will be current and former members of the men’s and women’s soccer programs.
Below is a description of each camp:
At the full-day soccer camp sessions, the kids will enjoy great soccer instruction, lunch, indoor soccer and instructional videos. There has been a change in the afternoon schedule from previous years. This year the campers will be playing indoor soccer in the North and South gyms in the MPE building located on the UNLV campus. They will also be watching a variety of instructional and inspirational soccer videos in the MPE classrooms.
Evening and Summerlin Camp:
The evening camp sessions will cover skill work, passing, receiving, shooting, individual and small sided attacking and individual and small sided defending, with scrimmages at the end of each day. Campers will receive a soccer ball and camp T-shirt. All skill levels are welcome.
New to the summer camp schedule will be the Henderson Elite Camp which will be held at Henderson International School. This camp will cover the same topics as the evening camps located at UNLV and in Summerlin. Again, campers will receive a soccer ball and T-shirt.
