LA Galaxy Foundation Hosts Camps for Kids

First Installment to be Held on June 22 at The Home Depot Center

The Los Angeles Galaxy Foundation will join forces with The
Home Depot Center Charitable Foundation to focus on fun, fitness and soccer by
hosting the first of their annual Camps for Kids on Tuesday, June 22 at The
Home Depot Center. Camps for Kids is an opportunity for approximately 150
children ages 7-10 to participate in a camp that features soccer drills, including
dribbling, passing, shooting, and small sided games as well as fitness tips.
This will be the first of three Camps for Kids that the Foundations will host
this year.

The first edition of Camps for Kids will feature a visit
from Galaxy midfielder Chris Birchall and defender Todd Dunivant.

Galaxy Soccer Camps’ staff will provide instruction and
basic soccer skills for the camp. Athletes Performance, the official training
partner of the Galaxy, will demonstrate how to properly warm-up before any
physical activity, talk to the kids about the importance of hydration and host
a physical fitness station.

In addition to donating Olympic pin sets for the camp gift
bags, Procter & Gamble will have its Crest Squeeze and Tide Soccer speed
kick on site for the kids to test their shot. Sensible Portions will be
providing samples for each gift bag as well as for lunch. The American Heart
Association’s empower ME Movement will also be on site to provide healthy
eating tips and give-a-ways that promote healthy choices.
