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 22nd 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.

The contest is open to boys and girls under 14 years old.

This year’s Whitecaps camp will be held from May 26-27 in Williams Lake and will feature the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame’s Sam Lenarduzzi, along with many other distinguished coaches.

The Williams Lake Whitecaps FC camp has a special place in the hearts of the Lenarduzzis, who started the camp here 22 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 deadline for writing submissions is 5 p.m. on Friday, May 18.

Writing submissions require a name, an address and a phone number so winners can be contacted.

Submissions can be dropped off at the Tribune at 188 N. 1st Avenue or e-mailed to sports@wltribune.com.
