If your camper is looking for a more traditional camp experience, consider LINX Soccer Camp as an alternative to LX Soccer Camp. LINX Soccer Campers have 3 periods of soccer per day, a 1 hour swim period (which includes a 30 minute lesson from trained LINX Swim Instructors, who implement our safe, fun-based, non-stress approach to teaching, plus 30 minutes free swim), a lunch period, and one period per day of traditional camp activities. Additionally, LINX Soccer Campers attend the General Camp opening and closing ceremonies.
Rhys Thomas brings soccer and IT expertise along with his much loved British accent and fun loving attitude back to LINX Camps for a second summer, as Soccer and IT Camps Coordinator for Summer 2018. He is a graduate of The University of Sheffield (South Yorkshire, England) with a BA in Business Management with Employment Experience. He’s been a passionate soccer player since the age of 6 (playing every chance he gets), led training sessions, ran competitions at school, and was the captain of his team for many years. During the non-summer months, Rhys worked as a Project Manager in a team of web designers and developers, fine-tuning his leadership skills. Teamwork is the key to his success both in and out of work, and a vital part of working at LINX.
Rhys’ proven ability to engage the kids in fun, learning, and all-around good sportsmanship is complemented by his personal mantra, “giving your all is far more important than winning.” Like his role model Maya Yoshida, a Southampton soccer player, you can count on Rhys to give his best and set an example. “So many soccer players these days have a big ego and think they’re bigger than the team, but Maya just keeps his head down, works hard for the team and always steps in when he’s needed. He’s a prime example of what all professional sports players should strive to be like, and I always try my best to work and give my all for my team in the same way.” Rhys looks forward to sharing his passion for soccer and encouraging campers to love the game as much as he does.
