Summer athletic camps are a great way for kids to get active, improve skills, meet future coaches, and have fun. Often, summer sports camps are short, lasting a couple of days to a week, and offering focused work on skills that can greatly improve an athlete’s confidence.

“Summer soccer camp is the first time that I can see how the new freshman class will fit into the team,” says Traverse City West High School men’s varsity soccer coach Matt Griesinger. “That is important, going into the Titan fall season of men’s soccer.” Griesinger is entering his fourth year as varsity men’s coach for the Titan soccer program at Traverse City West and is joined by Chelsey Avery, women’s coach, who coaches women’s varsity.

Traverse City West High School has both girls and boys soccer camps from June 18–21, in the mornings from 9–11 a.m. Kids can start as young as kindergarten through third grade, learning fundamental skills and competitive match mentality—and it is one of the most popular age groups. For grades fourth through sixth, soccer camp instruction focuses on individual and small group skills, match tactics and building soccer vocabulary. For students entering seventh grade and above, camp is a chance for high intensity instruction and game play focused on speed of play and developing athletes for the varsity level.

In the Titan soccer program, not only is summer soccer camp a chance for kids to hone their soccer skills for the upcoming academic seasons, but it also gives varsity and guest collegiate players a chance to try out coaching.

If you have a summer Northern Michigan sports camp to add to this list, please email with dates, times, location, cost and contact information including where one can find registration information.
