–By Ottawa Sportspage, For Royal City Soccer Club
With the most popular grassroots soccer camps in Canada, the Royal City Soccer Club has hosted over 100,000 campers in over 100 locations nationwide. This year, Royal City will reach many more locations thanks to its innovative Virtual Royal Camp @ Home programming, though an extremely difficult decision was made to cancel all in-person summer day camps due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We’ve never had to do this in 28 years, so our heart is breaking this summer,” reports Royal Soccer, regarded for its ability to teach personal development and life skills all while having the fun through its camps. “We do not want our customers to miss out on our fantastic programming so we’ve recently pivoted to developing a Virtual Camp for boys and girls aged 7 to 13.”
The virtual camps have been very well-received through its first few weeks. Virtual participants receive jam-packed 1-hour daily sessions from Monday to Friday (several different times are available each day).
Each session is filled with engaging and interactive fun activities, daily physical activity and warm ups, soccer skill development (regardless of what skill level participants are at) and interesting stories and trivia each day.
The registration fee is $59/week per child. For more information and to register, please call 1-800-427-0536 or visit royalsoccer.com. Also, check out a highlight video of our virtual camp:
Royal City looks forward to resuming our in-person camps next summer in Ottawa, Kanata, Nepean & Orleans.
