Free soccer camp for local youngsters

Local soccer coaches and the Pagosa Sting Soccer Club, in conjunction with The Challenger British Soccer Camp, will host a free soccer camp on Monday, May 24, at the Pagosa Springs High School soccer practice fields.

Two clinics are offered, with a clinic for soccer players 4-7 years old scheduled between 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. and soccer players 8-16 years old scheduled for 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

According to Pagosa Springs High School soccer coach Lindsey Kurt-Mason, the free clinic will “focus on the basics.,”

The clinic is a runup to the British Soccer camp, scheduled in early August. Players interested in signing up for the August camp can sign up at www.challengersports.com. Participants will receive a free soccer ball, camp T-shirt, evaluation and poster. If registered 45 days prior to the camp, participants will also receive a free replica British Soccer jersey. However, if participants sign up for the camp during the free clinic, they will receive a free skills ball and will get free shipping on the replica British Soccer jersey.

Anyone interested in attending Monday’s free clinic or August’s soccer camp should contact Kurt-Mason at 731-2458 or e-mail him at lkurtmason@pagosa.k12.co.us with any questions.
