Gator Girls Soccer
Coach: Mr. Allan Issenchmidt
Dates: Monday, June 18-Friday, June 22
Times: 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Audience: All-girls, rising 4th-8th graders
Led by SPSG’s Middle School French teacher Mr. Issenchmidt, our campers will focus on the continued development of fundamental skills, as well as broader game knowledge and strategy. Additionally, participants will benefit from training sessions led by our strength and conditioning coaches. This camp is designed to welcome to new players, enhance current players’ skills, and challenge our more experienced athletes. We will provide a complete training program to teach basic skills, individual techniques, position-specific instruction, team concepts, game strategies, small-sided games, and fun competitions. Our goal is for all campers to become more confidant in their abilities in a welcoming and positive environment.
On the last day of camp, Coach Issenchmidt will wrap up with a fun soccer competition followed by crepes. Yes, Coach Issenchmidt will bring in his French background and influence to soccer camp, where our soccer players will work as a team to create some delicious crepes to enjoy!
Recommendation: If you are interested in a full-day option for your camper, we have two camps to pair that would allow your child to have a full-day experience at SPSG Summer. We have Dips & Donuts Cooking Camp running from 12:30-3:30 p.m., where we would bring your child from Gator Girls Soccer, supervise them over a 30-minute lunch, and escort them to the cooking camp. We also have our Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead camp running the same week from 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. While this is a full-day camp, we are happy to welcome any Gator Girls Soccer attendees in the afternoon from 12:00-3:30 p.m. We will escort them to this program and they can jump in with the ongoing activity. If you are interested in making your Gator Girls Soccer experience into a full-day program, please contact Shannon Duckett at firstname.lastname@example.org and she can work with you on registration, pricing, and details.

About the Director:
David Mast was #1 while he attended Calvert Hall High School and #1 Singles & Doubles at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Mast says “I believe that sports, specifically tennis, can raise a person’s self esteem. Our goal is to bring out each person’s full potential, while patiently guiding and teaching them the sport of tennis. Having gone through many levels of tennis myself, I feel I can convey a patient teaching method best suited for all levels of play”
Radical Ropers Jump Rope Camp
Director: Daniel Overtoom, Sr.
Dates: Monday, July 23-Friday, July 27
Times: 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Audience: Coed, Ages 7-15
Before/After Care: Before-care ONLY. 8:00-9:00 a.m. for $25 per week
The Radical Ropers were Baltimore County’s first and only Jump Rope for Heart Demonstration Team, sponsored by the American Heart Association. The team traveled throughout the state of Maryland from 1998 to 2015 promoting the Jump Rope for Heart program and fighting against heart disease, through a highly skilled, choreographed jump rope show. During camp, the Radical Ropers will engage our summer campers in all the disciplines of jump rope including: group sync, freestyle, long ropes, partner skills and double dutch. A culminating show will occur on the last day of camp from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. to display what the jumpers have accomplished during their week of training.
Recommendation: If your campers would like to make a full day program by doing Radical Ropers in the morning and then joining our Cooking Around the World or Gatorland Day Camp in the afternoons, we can make that happen. WE would have a staff member pick up your child after Radical Ropers and walk them to Cooking Around the World from 12:30pm – 3:30pm or Gatorland Day Camp from 12pm – 3:30pm to make a full day option. We know a full day program is preferable to most of our families and we are happy to work out these arrangements with you and for you. If you do a full day option, we can also offer you the option to have before and/or after care. Those rates are on the Gatorland Day Camp portion of our SPSG Summer website. If you would like to combine two of our incredible programs into a full day option, please contact email@example.com and we will work with you on registration and payment details.
