questions, students design a “math trail” to identify the various types of math present in everyday life. For each trail, students design a map, take pictures, develop directions, and create a set of problems for their peers to solve. Each trail might cover or review topics such as proportional reasoning, geometry, percentages, and algebra. The class culminates with each camper taking home a binder of each of the trails created by the class.

SPORTS

Cognitive Soccer Training

Art of Scoring Goals

Although technique and athleticism are important qualities, the “thinking players” stand above the rest. In the midst of the game, a player’s brain is accomplishing the incredible feat of multitasking, tracking, anticipating, timing, strategizing, reacting, problem solving, and executing. Therefore, it’s crucial for youth players to develop their brains as well as their bodies. This class incorporates brain-centered training into cognitive challenges that provide traditional, technical, and tactical training, with activities designed to ask campers to multitask and solve soccer problems on the field. Participation in this class can be half-day or full-day.

Grades 6-8

Grades 3-5

Scoring goals is the most important and difficult skill in soccer, requiring solid technical skills as well as the ability to get into scoring positions. The Art of Scoring Goals program focuses on developing these skills by incorporating a variety of finishing activities and scoring-related cognitive training. Campers take part in shooting drills that focus on gamerelated scenarios, creative scrimmages, and much more. While we can’t guarantee anyone will win the Golden Boot award, we can ensure that players improve their ability to score goals and take on a more significant role in their team’s attacking play. Since goals are scored by players in different positions, the program is suitable for all soccer players, not just forwards.

WAITLIST

To reserve your child’s spot, a non-refundable, non-transferable deposit of $150 per week, per child is due at the time of registration and is deducted from the total amount due.

There is no fee for being on a waiting list, nor is any credit card information required. We cannot take waitlist registrations or hold spots over the phone. As spaces become available, they are filled in the order in which they were registered online.

The Langley School Summer Studio program reserves the right to charge the credit card on file for outstanding balances. Upon completion of your registration, you will receive an e-mail confirmation along with a copy of your statement.

Should a space become available for a waitlisted class, you will be notified via e-mail and/ or telephone to confirm interest in the available spot. If you decide to enroll your child in the available spot, you will need to complete your registration by paying the deposit and/or full payment online (please see our class changes, cancellations, & withdrawals policy). There is no penalty should you choose not to enroll; we will simply notify the next family on the waitlist.
