Camp Philosophy
This is the 3rd year of the Soccer Skills Camp. Modelled after our long-standing basketball skills camp, now in its 18th year, the philosophy of the camp is to provide a positive and fun learning experience to youth by exposing them to the fundamentals of soccer and life, including the values and qualities that we feel are necessary to be successful in these arenas.

The camp will focus on three pillars, 1) skill development, 2) teamwork and leadership, and 3) life values and traits. We at Chief Sealth feel that in order to truly be successful student-athletes we must work equally in all three areas.

About Us
The camp will be directed by long-time boys and girls Head Soccer Coach, Ron Johnson. Johnson, who was named Metro Sound Boys Coach of the Year in both 2012 and 2013, has been the Seahawks head coach for 20 seasons. He has taken the boys on to the WIAA 3A Metro and State tournament multiple times. On the girls side, he has been the head coach since the program began and has built the program into a league contender, as the 2013 girls team finished 3rd in the Metro Sound League.

The camp will be led by both current and past members of the Chief Sealth boys and girls soccer teams. They will provide coaching by exposing campers to the fundamental skills of the game through proven coaching methods. Our camp does not guarantee success as a player, but it will expose campers to the ingredients necessary to becoming a skilled player and successful high school student-athlete.

Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt. Campers must provide their own lunch. It is recommended that each camper bring his/her own water bottle, as water stations will be available for fill-up. Campers should also dress appropriately and consider sunscreen as we will be outside the entirety of the camp. The camp is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
It is requested that campers NOT bring their own soccer ball.
