Vancouver Whitecaps soccer camp rescheduled

The Williams Lake Tribune, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC and the Williams Lake Youth Soccer Association have partnered to send four young players to this year’s 21st Annual Vancouver Whitecaps FC Soccer Camp.

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 camp was originally scheduled to be held from May 7-8 at the Esler Sports Complex; however, due to the fields not being in condition to be used, the camp has been moved to June 4-5. The camp will still be held at Esler.

The camp will feature Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame’s Sam Lenarduzzi, along with other Vancouver Whitecaps FC coaches.

The Williams Lake Whitecaps FC camp has a special place in the hearts of the Lenarduzzis, who started the camp here 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.

The new deadline for writing submissions is 5 p.m. on Friday, May 20.

Winners will then be chosen and announced the following week in the paper.

Writing submissions require a name, an address and a phone number so winners can be contacted and can be either dropped off at the Tribune or e-mailed to
