More than a hundred players participated in the World Cup Soccer Camp across the North Island last week. The camps, which were led by visiting coaches from Victoria, took place in various communities throughout the week and culminated in a tournament Friday on the North Island Secondary School pitch in Port McNeill.

During the tournament, players split up into teams representing different countries. The teams were then divided into seniors and juniors, and teammates took turns playing while the onlookers cheered, danced, and showed team spirit from the sidelines. Extra points were awarded for enthusiasm.

In the final playoffs, Team Spain squared off against Team Belgium, with Belgium taking home the gold.

All players received t-shirts at the end of the tournament.
