Valley Christian Summer Soccer Camp -
Day four of the Valley Christian Soccer camp was one to remember.
The campers welcomed special guest, Joe Cannon, out to camp. The
goalkeepers received special coaching from Joe, who has twice been named
the Aquafina Goalkeeper of the Year in Major League Soccer.
Coach John Basanese was quick to point out what Joe's appearance means
to the players.
"Joe is not your run of the mill MLS player, he's one of the league's
best players. To have him take time on his day off to come out and
spend time with our kids is a special thing. Needless to say, we
really appreciate it. Our soccer program has a great relationship
with Joe Cannon, and we're glad to have him back in San Jose."
The theme of the day was shooting, and here are the key
coaching points to remember from day 4!

The difference between a shot and a finish? A finish goes in
the goal. Work on your finishing.
Keep your shots on frame, make the goalkeeper make the save.
The only way to improve your shot is repetition, practice as often
as you possibly can!
Don't forget to bring your swim suit tomorrow, and a towel for a quick
trip to the pool.

150 photos from the day. See below.
