Representatives with World Cup Soccer Camps & Clinics announced today that it has established five new partnerships with Indoor Soccer Arenas.

“We are running indoor camps at all these arenas this December and January for the very first time,” said Ruedi Graf, founder and spokesman for World Cup Soccer Camps & Clinics, which also earlier this month, added indoor winter camps in San Francisco, Burlingame, Redwood City, Santa Clara, Los Gatos and Vacaville.

The five indoor arenas that World Cup Soccer & Camps now have partnership with include: Burlingamer Indoor Soccer Arena in Burlingame, Dogpatch Indoor Soccer Arena in San Francisco, Soccer Nation Indoor Arena in Vacaville, SportsHouse Indoor Soccer Arena, and Cabernet Indoor Soccer in Livermore.

The company, which employs approximately 95 coaches, according to Graf 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 2004 MVLA Soccer Club Coach of the Year, and 1995 High School Coach of the Year, stressed that the reason that adding the five new partnerships is not only good news for the organization, but for the kids, because it enables them to teach and help more soccer players take their game to the next level.

Michelle Ruggels, a parent of seven-year old twins, who recently completed a week of camp, gave World Cup Soccer Camps & Clinics two thumbs up.

“Even though they both like soccer, they were very unsure about attending soccer camp, and there was a bit of arm twisting involved,” Ruggels recalled. “When I signed up for camp, I couldn't decide between the half-day or the full-day camp because I honestly couldn't imagine what they would do all day without getting bored, but ended up with full-day. My other concern was that while my son is notably athletic, my daughter is notably afraid of the ball, and I wasn't sure if she would feel left out if the focus went to the stronger players. Well, I shouldn't have worried. This turned out to be their favorite camp, and all they talked about was how much fun they had all day long. My daughter won MVP of the camp for Tuesday, and I wanted to send flowers to the coaches for the boost that gave to her confidence. The coaches and the program were great. Each child received so much in attention, skills, confidence, and most importantly for a summer experience, had a blast. We'll be back for winter camp.”

Graf said he’s excited that the five new partnerships would give the organization the opportunity to serve and help more kids like the Ruggels’ twins.

“When it comes to technical knowledge, our trainers have the education and experience and know how to share it with the players,” Graf said. “We understand that everyone is unique and requires a program that works on the needs of the individual.”
