Ocosta Soccer Camp begins June 17

Ocosta High School will host the 19th Ocosta Soccer Camp June 17-19 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Ocosta High School soccer field. The camp is co-ed with all activities separated into age groups. Individual skills are the primary focus of the camp. The camp is open to all children who will be entering kindergarten through 7th grades next fall.

The cost is $40 until June 7 and $50 after June 7. Checks can be made payable to Ocosta High School. Registration forms will be distributed at school, but if you haven’t received one and would like to send your child to a fun-filled camp, contact Mike King at 360-581-0474. You can also register your child the first day of camp on site. Registration and payment may be delivered to Ocosta High School prior to school letting out.

All campers are required to be covered by their own health and accident insurance. Each camper should bring a lunch (kept in a backpack or gym bag), snacks, water bottle, soccer shoes, shin guards, and dress for the weather. Camp will operate rain or shine.

Camp objectives are to emphasize fundamentals, develop a positive attitude about yourself and your game, to answer all your questions about soccer, to provide an outlet for your competitive spirit, and ensure that campers leave with a positive, fun-filled experience

Camp purposes are to provide an opportunity for boys and girls to improve their skills and techniques, to build a solid soccer foundation, and to develop a rapport between high school players and coaches and the camp participants.

Skills to be taught include dribbling, passing and trapping, goalkeeping, sportsmanship, leadership, field communication, one on one defense and offense, throw-ins and game situations.

Camp Director is Mike King, Ocosta High School soccer coach. Coach King began playing soccer in 1968 and has 31 years of soccer coaching experience with the South Beach Youth Soccer Club, Ocosta High School, and Western Washington University soccer club. Ocosta High School soccer players and coaching staff will be working at the camp. All funds go to the Ocosta High School soccer program.
