According to a recent study conducted by ESPN/Rick Luker Foundation, professional soccer is now the second most popular sport in the USA for ages 12-24, and thanks to the additions made by the World Cup Soccer Camps & Clinics, more kids in CA, OR, and WA will be able to train and boost their soccer skills, quickly and easily.

“We added Alameda, Larkspur, Aptos, San Carlos and Half Moon Bay to our camp locations in the San Francisco Bay Area,” said Ruedi Graf, founder and spokesman for World Cup Soccer Camps & Clinics.

World Cup Soccer Camps & Clinics provides soccer camps, clinics, after-school classes, team training, and personal soccer training for children of all ages and abilities.

Graf, who was voted and awarded the 2009 Community College Coach of the Year, the 2004 MVLA Soccer Club Coach of the Year, and 1995 High School Coach of the Year, went on to explain that in addition, the organization has expanded to San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Portland/ Oregon and Vancouver/ Washington.

The organization’s decision to make additions to its soccer locations and expand to cover a larger area could prove to have perfect timing.

According to the ESPN/Luker study, there is at least one soccer player in 30 percent of American households.

Luker, a social scientist who studies the latest trends in sports, says soccer's rise to the top of the American sports pyramid is inevitable. The NFL tops the list, according to the ESPN/Luker study. Baseball has slipped to fourth behind basketball for ages 12-24.

Over these 22 years, Graf said, World Cup Soccer Camps & Clinics has maintained the highest standards of professional coaching, earning a reputation as one of the best all-around camp businesses in California.

He added that the company employs approximately 90 coaches.

“We see the popularity of soccer growing and the interest in the sport amongst younger kids and teenagers has really grown over the past decade, so we’ve made the commitment to make the proper additions and expand in order to serve and help develop as many soccer lovers as we can,” Graf said. “With our help, the sky is the limit for all students.”
