Achieving this goal could be done by having your kids go into camps where they will be trained and have practices under the supervision of a qualified coach. There are some soccer camps Calgary which are available for your kids to attend to and a reputable one must be chosen. After choosing though, preparing for it is needed specially when this is the first time your child will have.
Get them ready through letting them know of your plan on how to go to the camping area which includes driving there days before in helping them get familiar. Ask the management if having a tour is possible and show them the practice areas and where they would stay. Emphasize that no vital thing will happen which they would miss at home.
Show your confidence that they will be excelling and thriving at the camp because it helps increase their changes of succeeding. They can try new things, learn more regarding themselves and meet new people there. If both of you feel nervous, discuss these emotions to let them understand on how excited you are for them to experience something new.
Start packing together early for avoiding stress and in forgetting things so being this task week before the activity. Check the list that the management has provided on what to bring then fill their bag with these slowly and buy those you lack. If this is done earlier then avoiding unhealthy emotions will not be the only advantage but more time is also available in completing the list.
Advise them in bringing something which will help them feel at home and comfortable even when far from your house such as a pillow, photo or stuffed animal. Set goals together concerning what they plan to achieve during camp such as making new friends or improving soccer skills. When you call them there, ask for progress of these goals every time.
Ready your communication plan with them and discuss the expectations that both of you have about these calls. You are given numerous opportunities in checking up on them while avoiding to jeopardize their camp experience. Make your conversations short so they will be able to get back in making new friends again.
Encourage them in making new friends with other campers as many as possible because some came from other states or countries even. They can learn more about the lives and experiences in soccer of other campers which helps them connect to different kinds of people. Encourage them also to keep the connection even after the camp has ended.
Get your child and yourself an early sleep the night before so you will arrive at the venue with great attitude and excitement. Make plans for dinner or something to do with them after the camp. This would be a great opportunity to allow your child share all their accomplishments and memories.
