Before man grew arms, he could only move boulders with his feet, his mind, or the crinkle-curled tail of his obliging brachiosaurus. Bask in prehistoric glory with today's Groupon for youth summer soccer camps from Golden Boot Soccer. All of today's offered camps are scheduled Monday through Friday from morning to early afternoon. Choose from the following options:

Golden Boot Soccer helms its training camps with astute, talented coaches pulled from the ranks of ex-DC United players and other teams around the world. Kids can acquire the fine art of foot-fueled accuracy with the Art of Scoring camp's techniques and drills. During Goalkeeper camp, active coaches run drills that teach young defenders how to clutch and throw the ball out of the box, always placing an emphasis on protecting the goal and maintaining the ultimate goal—protecting the president. The Mini Kickers camp takes a stride towards toddler stardom by presenting fundamental and sporty concepts such as soccer rules, good sportsmanship, and teamwork in a noncompetitive, exploratory environment.
The coaches structure camps in a manner that keeps the family tree in bloom, with parents welcome to attend any camp. Players must bring their own equipment, including soccer ball, shin guards, soccer cleats, sunscreen, snacks, water, and irrepressible disdain for hexagonally patterned balls.
