Level up on soccer skills

Signups are open for Bobcat Youth Development Soccer Camp, open to youth 7-14. The camp will be held 8 a.m. to noon June 8-10 at the Blue Ridge Early College soccer field, giving players a chance to have fun while learning fundamental techniques necessary to play the game. The program will focus on individual skill development with a technical curriculum specific to age and ability. Cost is $60. 

The Future Mustang Soccer Camp will welcome youth ages 8-14 5-7 p.m. June 6-8 at the Smoky Mountain High School stadium in Sylva. The camp will focus on technical development as well as tactics to be incorporated into small-sided games. Cost is $60.
