SUMMIT, NJ - The Hiltopper Girls Varsity Soccer Camp, led by Summit High School Girls Varsity Soccer Team Head Coach Gary Healey, has announced new hours for the camp that will be held July 11 - 14 on the Upper Turf Field at Summit High School.
In order to maximize opportunities for girls to attend, the camp will now be held daily at 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., thus eliminating confilcts with the popular FLASH program and other sports camps.
The camp's mission is to teach the fundamental skills of soccer as well as introducing game concepts such as passing angles, creating space and both offensive and defensive strategies.
