Chattanooga FC will be offering a Holiday Soccer Camp on December 19, 20, and 23. This is a great time to drop the kids off and get some holiday errands (or some holiday rest!) completed. We believe soccer is the Beautiful Game and we want to grow the love of the game with kids in the Chattanooga area. These camps will be a great chance for players of all skill levels to experience soccer from a new perspective by learning from Chattanooga FC Academy coaches. Teams are always welcome!

Holiday Camp will be held at Notre Dame High School which means we’ll have access to two indoor gyms in addition to outdoor soccer fields, so our campers will be able to play no matter the weather, come rain, sleet, snow, or (hopefully!) sunshine.

The director for Holiday Camp is Kris Ray, who has more than 25 years of coaching experience at the youth, high school, and collegiate levels. He is currently serving as Central Oregon Regional Director (ODP) and is a staff coach and director for Portland Timbers (MLS) and Portland Thorns ID Camps. While in Chattanooga he ran the Elite Soccer Training program which worked with more than 100 players who went on to play at the next level. After leaving Chattanooga, Kris has served as Coaching Director for three MLS-affiliated clubs. He has been part of camp coaching staffs for Syracuse University, Vanderbilt University, Indiana University, MTSU, UNC, and Duke University in his career.

Players who trained with Kris, went on to play college soccer in the SEC, ACC, and Big 10. His players have also been invited to train in US Soccer’s National or Regional Training Pools. As a team coach, he’s led groups to state championships, NPL South Atlantic Premier League championships, and has competed for a National Championship.

In college, he played at Western Kentucky University.
