CSC Founder and Head Coach, Antonio Soave, said, "This is a great opportunity for young soccer players to sharpen their skills while enhancing their Catholic faith. It is literally an exemplification of faith in action. Due to overwhelming commitment to sports, athletes tend to become great witnesses for the faith."
Catholic Soccer Camps links sophisticated soccer training with the Catholic faith by incorporating on-field prayer, daily mass, praise & worship and confession during the week. Young soccer players can grow in their faith while exponentially progressing in the sport. Additionally, teamwork and self-esteem are advocated at all levels of play and competition, and various aspects of Italian language and culture are shared with campers. It is truly an international soccer experience with profound Catholic-Christian roots.
CSC is in collaboration with Varsity Catholic (a division of the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) and Catholic Athletes for Christ in Washington, D.C.).
