Digger Hawkins’ Striker Camp focuses on improving the art of creating and scoring goals


Objective: The main objective of this Striker Camp is to give all players – forwards, midfielders and defenders experience at going to goal. The majority of this Camp will be played in the final third of the field and will assure that players will have more scoring opportunities and assists. A Goalkeeping component again will be added for U9 and above only and will compliment the Striker Camp.
