World Cup (camp) coming to North Island

Victoria-based World Cup Soccer Camp to return to North Vancouver Island.

The instructors of the Victoria-based World Cup Soccer Camp will return to North Vancouver Island to help local youth players in camps across several communities July 22-26.

Camps will be held during the week for players aged 6-14 in both Port Hardy and Port Alice, and for players from 4-16 years in Port McNeill and Sointula.

The week, as always, wraps up with the traditional jamboree tournament Friday morning, July 26, at the NISS track field in Port McNeill. Players from all communities, at all ages, are brought together to represent their “country” in mini games punctuated by flag-waving and wild dancing.

More information and registration for camps in each town is available online at www.worldcupsoccercamp.com.
