New Castle Soccer Camp

The New Castle High School boys soccer coaching staff, players and alumni invite boys and girls entering grades 1-8 to a soccer clinic to improve their soccer knowledge and skills.

Campers will take part in agility training and the proper technique for dribbling, passing, shooting, and defending through fun games and activities as well increasing overall soccer knowledge. All skill levels of soccer players are welcomed and encouraged.

The camp will run next week from June 18-21. Youngsters entering grades 1-4 will have camp together from 6-7:15 p.m. those four days, and those entering grades 5-8 also will have their camp as a group from 6-7:15 p.m.

The camp will be held on the Blue River Soccer Fields at Memorial Park on the east side of Ind. 3 just north of New Castle. The cost of the camp is $30 per person, which includes a camp T-shirt. Campers are asked to bring athletic shoes and clothes, water, and a soccer ball (if possible).

Direct questions and online registrations to Tyron Rainer at tyron.rainer@comcast.net.
