The El Dorado Hills Soccer Club hosted its first All-Star Jamboree for more than 150 U7 and U8 girls and boys earlier this month, giving the club’s younger players who show a strong desire to improve their skills a venue in which to compete with similar players.

“We wanted to create the All-Star Jamboree for those kids who, at an early age, are aiming to learn the skills needed to become competitive soccer players,” said Tony Gallo, Jamboree Coordinator. “This is also a celebration of that commitment from the players’ families.”

Joe Champion, head coach of the Oak Ridge High School varsity girls and boys soccer teams, provided training and support for the jamboree teams. These teams were coached by several Oak Ridge varsity players, which made for a valuable experience for all.

The El Dorado Hills Soccer Club offers four distinct levels of play for youth, ages 6 to 18: recreational play, competitive local play, competitive regional play and TOP Soccer (for special needs players).
