Soccer All Skills Summer Camp
Keep your soccer player sharp over the Summer and get them ready for the upcoming Fall Season by registering them in the ESA Summer Soccer Camp. The Camp will be headlined by Kendall Walkes and staffed by highly experienced ESA Soccer Trainers who use their vast playing and coaching experience to provide your child with exactly what they need to help them improve all of the necessary skills to become better players.
Lead instructor Kendall Walkes coached 22 seasons as the head coach of the West Chester University men’s soccer team. In the 84-year history of soccer at the school, he is just the program’s fourth bench coach since 1927.
Walkes’ first victory of the 2010 campaign marked his 200th career triumph. The veteran soccer mentor has averaged nearly 10 wins per season during his illustrious career. The third-longest tenured head coach at West Chester University, Walkes’ overall record stands at 205-176-28 and 90-78-17 within the PSAC. He is 13 wins shy of his former mentor and legendary head coach Mel Lorback on the school’s all-time wins list.
Walkes’ playing experience, which includes Olympic (1976) and World Cup preliminary round competition for Trinidad & Tobago (1978 & 1982), has provided the Golden Rams\' program with invaluable experience.
Walkes acquired his M.S. in Exercise Physiology from WCU in 1986 after having completed his undergraduate degree at Davis & Elkins in 1984. He also has a USSF “A” License.
The Staff will infuse excitement, contests, and games into everything they do so that your child is not only improving their fundamentals, but also enjoying themselves while they learn.
