A total of 185 campers, coaches, trainers and counselors recently took part in the seventh annual Soccer Camp held at Connetquot High School during the week of July 30.

Divided into two age-appropriate groups, the upperclassmen attended the morning program while the younger students in grades first through sixth attended a three-hour evening session. Both current and former varsity soccer players took part in the program, assisting the younger campers by being coaches and mentors. 

After the campers were divided into groups, they were sent to activity stations where they worked on individual skill improvement and team play. In addition to skill-improving activities, the campers and coaches played a variety of games designed to keep the players sharp and motivated. Coaches Nick Sturtz and Ryan Cavanagh were very pleased with both the competition and increased number of certified trainers that took part in this summer’s soccer program.
