Two Rivers Soccer Camp was founded by Dick and Pat Schwendinger, who together with family continue to direct the camp with the same care and dedication that has been a hallmark of Two Rivers since 1971. Dick Schwendinger coached soccer at the collegiate level for over 20 years where his teams won Conference and Northern California Community College Championships. Because of his in-depth knowledge of the game, he was the play-by-play and color commentator for the radio and television broadcasts of San Jose's Professional Soccer Team, The Earthquakes.
We personally seek, recruit and hire the highest quality staff we can find. The camper/staff ratio of 4:1 is the lowest of any quality soccer camp in the U.S. You will be assigned a personal coach for maximum soccer help and a personal counselor to attend to your safety and welfare. The coaches are advanced level players and teachers from Europe and the U.S. The counselors are all carefully selected college students from across the U.S. and other countries. A nurse and / or first aid trainer is on call at all times and Two Rivers has two nearby hospitals.
