The Madison Futbol Club (MFC), which has been bringing soccer to Central Phoenix since the 1950s, kicks off its annual Challenger Sports’ British Soccer Camp.

From June 10-14, soccer pros from the United Kingdom will be in Phoenix to coach during MFC’s half-day camp. Participants get a dose of British culture from one of the world’s leaders in professional soccer and make new friends while getting extensive soccer training. The camp mixes fun, sportsmanship and learning.

Coaching will focus on individual foot skills, fakes, moves and turns, freestyle soccer and technical and tactical instruction. There will be daily World Cup-style tournaments and other scrimmages.

Camp is open to boys and girls ages 6 to 16 with different groups for ages 6-9 and for ages 10-16. This year’s camp takes place 5-8 p.m. June 10-14 at Madison Park Middle School, 1431 E. Campbell Ave.

Register online at Camp costs $140 per child. Early registrants (45 days prior to camp) are eligible for a free soccer ball and replica jersey.

Madison Futbol offers soccer throughout the year through its recreational leagues as well as competitive club soccer teams for children ages 4 and up. For more information, email Shawn Grunewald at
