The Champions Soccer Camp is coming back to Williams Lake for its 14th year.

Back for its 14th consecutive year the Cariboo Bethel Church, the Kiwanis Club and Youth for Christ are teaming up to host the Champions Soccer Camp in Williams Lake.

Camp organizer Ryan Penner said the camp is completely free, adding sessions will involve skill development, team play, snack breaks (provided), tournament games, contests, prizes and a short devotional. The camp is for boys and girls 6-12 years old.

Players will be divided up into small groups by age and led by qualified coaches.

All participants registered in the camp will receive a soccer ball and a camp T-shirt.

The camp runs Monday, Aug. 12 to Friday, Aug. 16 from 9:30 a.m. until noon at the Marie Sharpe Elementary School field.

The camp is being sponsored by Cariboo Bethel Church, Youth for Christ, Kiwanis Club of Williams Lake and Sprucelee Construction Company.

On Friday there will be a barbecue for all camp participants.
