All you need to do is write to the Tribune and tell us why you think you should win this year’s scholarship. We want to see what kinds of responses you, the players, come up with.

Be creative, have fun and tell us why, for whatever reasons, you should be awarded the scholarship.

This year’s Whitecaps camp will be held from May 7-8 in Williams Lake at the Esler Sports Complex, and will feature Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame’s Sam Lenarduzzi, along with other Whitecaps coaches.

The Williams Lake Whitecaps FC camp has a special place in the hearts of the Lenarduzzis, who started the camp in the lakecity 21 years ago.

Kids attending the camp will learn skill development in a fun environment, all the while having the opportunity to meet and get to know the Whitecaps premier coaching staff.

Winners will be chosen Friday, April 29 and will be announced in the paper Tuesday, May 3.
