Our Intramural camp is open to all ages that will be playing in our intramural program in the fall. This fun filled environment will create an enjoyment for physical exercise and the game of soccer.
High School Pre-Season Camp
The high school camp I set up to provide FC Brandywine players the best chance of making their High School teams. Players should come away from camp tired from a hard pre-season of Physical and Technical correction. Because our players will be attending so many different high schools, limited Tactical awareness work will be involved so High School coaches have a "clean slate" from which to work with during their own pre-season. Several fitness tests will be performed, including the Beep Test and Manchester United runs.
