Soccer Camps With College Coach Draws Hundreds


Guam – Nearly a hundred of the island’s youth came out to get a taste of soccer action on Sunday in the GFA Youth Soccer Camp conducted by guest coach George Kuntz.

Kuntz, head coach of the University of California, Irvine men’s soccer team, worked with two different groups – one aged 13 to 18 and the other 9 to 12 years old.

In the older group, the theme of the camp was “possession to goal” while the younger group followed a more straightforward “go to goal” theme. The reason, Kuntz said, is that college coaches are always looking for creative players.

The College Recruitment Process

Kuntz wrapped up his four-day visit on Monday with a presentation on learning the college recruitment process. The presentation, held at the Harvest Family Life Center, was attended by about 30 people interested in what Kuntz had to say.

Various topics included the application process, financial aid, NCAA structure and rules, and scouting among others.

Kuntz was the second college soccer coach to visit Guam this month, after Mindes Dorlean from Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.
