Sealth soccer skills camp set for July 21-25

The 2nd annual Friends of Sealth Soccer Skills Camp returns to the Southwest Athletic Complex on July 21 through 25. Open to all boys and girls headed into grade 3 through 9, the camp will be conducted from 9am to 3pm daily.

According to the organizers, "the philosophy of the camp is to provide a positive and fun learning experience to youth by exposing them to the fundamentals of soccer and life, including the values and qualities that we feel are necessary to be successful in these arenas.

The camp will focus on three pillars, 1) skill development, 2) teamwork and leadership, and 3) life values and traits. We at Chief Sealth feel that in order to truly be successful student- athletes we must work equally in all three areas.

The camp will be directed by long-time boys and girls Head Coach Ron Johnson. Johnson, who was named Metro Sound Boys Coach of the Year in both 2012 and 2013, has been the Seahawks head coach for 17 seasons, and has taken the boys to the WIAA 3A state tournament in each of the past three seasons. On the girls side, he has been the head coach since the program began and has built the program into a league contender, as the 2013 girls team finished 3rd in the Metro Sound League.

Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt. Campers must pro- vide their own lunch. It is recommended that each camper bring his/her own water bottle, as water stations will be available for fill-up. Campers should also dress appropriately and consider sunscreen as we will be outside the entirety of the camp. The camp is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

It is requested that campers NOT bring their own soccer ball.
