One-week camps begins on June 21 at the Richard Grimes Sports Complex in Ocean City, N.J.
The Ocean City Nor'easters are excited to announce that registration is open for the club's 16th annual Summer Vacation Soccer Camps. Kids from ages 3 - 14 are invited to learn to play the game of soccer in a fun environment throughout the summer.
For the convenience of our families, the camps will take place in one-week sessions in Ocean City, N.J., America's Greatest Family Resort.
Established in 2005, the Ocean City Nor’easters’ Summer Vacation Soccer Camps have provided thousands of young players with the exclusive opportunity to interact with, and learn from, the players and coaches of South Jersey’s premier soccer team. Following a unique curriculum directly influenced by US Soccer, every Nor’easters camp provides players of all ages and abilities the appropriate level of coaching.
This year's camp will take place at the Richard Grimes Sports Complex (6th Ave. and Haven Ave.) in Ocean City with camps beginning on June 21, 2021.
"We are so excited to get the kids of Ocean City and surrounding areas back on the field this summer," said Nor'easters general manager Giancarlo Granese Jr. "It has been a challenging year for all of us, so to be able to bring back a fun summer tradition like the Summer Vacation Camp, to get kids learning about and playing the game of soccer, is a thrill."
The Nor'easters will continue to work with the City of Ocean City and monitor the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The health and safety of our campers, their families and our staff are paramount, and the club will be following all guidance set forth by the New Jersey State Health Department.
