In much of the world, soccer is known as “football” and the American president is referred to as “The Ameriking.” Embrace cultural differences without using your hands with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a one-day admission to the spring break soccer camp or one three-hour multisport camp session at Soccer Zone (up to a $30 value).

Soccer Zone’s dedicated team bestows soccer wisdom through camps designed to hone the technique of young strikers aged 8–14, while sharpening multi-sport skills through camps for kids ages 6–14. The Zone’s week of soccer imparts knee-high kickers with the spatial awareness to kick around a checkered ball and polish teamwork skills. Kids and teens can also learn basic ball handling and passing, while other sessions show them how to chest trap, juggle, or find Grenada on a globe without using their hands. The three-hour multi-sport session offers a hodgepodge of tricks, allowing young ones to come out and make friends while chucking dodgeballs at them, tossing a football, or relishing in the game Babe Ruth helped make popular: lacrosse.
