Warren High hosting summer soccer camp for girls

The Warren High School girls’ soccer program will be hosting a summer camp next month. 
Camp will be held June 26-30. Girls ages 11 and up are welcome to attend the camp.

Warren girls’ head coach Lily Dussan would like to invite young ladies aged 11 and older to get an early start on their soccer career at Warren by attending the 2017 summer camp. The mission of the camp is to provide athletes with the tools to improve and to enjoy soccer for life. 

Coach Dussan says that the camp offers a fantastic soccer venue with a safe, healthy and fun learning environment for all skill levels. 

Athletes will improve their skills and fitness for the upcoming season and make new friends. Basic skills such as ball control, passing and shooting will be enhanced while the fundamental tactics of the game will be learned. 

All camp participants will have the opportunity to work with established varsity level players and the coaching staff from Warren High School.

Sign-ups will be held Thursday, June 1 from 6-8 p.m. in room P5 at Warren High School. The cost is $100 cash/check payable to Warren High School.
