Dates have changed for Whitecaps and Nelson Youth Soccer camp

Camp will now run July 20 to 24.

This summer’s youth soccer camp run by Nelson Youth Soccer and the Whitecaps Academy will now run July 20 to 24, changed from dates announced in April.

 

This is because the original dates conflicted with another soccer camp, and there were players who wanted to attend both, says the Whitecap’s Brett Adams.

“The relationship between the Whitecaps and Nelson Youth Soccer is that we want everyone to experience as many soccer opportunities as possible, so by doing this it means kids have a wider spectrum of choice,” Adams said.

 

The camp will run at the Lakeside fields, in three categories:

  • Mini Caps (U5 to U6) Basic skills and fun—10 a.m. to noon

  • Skills camp (U7 to U14) Themed sessions for all levels—10 a.m. to noon

  • Skills World Cup Camp (U7 to U14) Skills camp and afternoon World Cup tournament—10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
