World Cup comes north

Stef Steiner and his staff return for their annual visit with the World Cup Soccer Camp beginning July 21.

The brief North Island youth soccer season may have wrapped up, but there’s still an opportunity for local players to get their kicks when Stef Steiner and his staff return for their annual visit with the World Cup Soccer Camp beginning July 21.

The weeklong camp is actually a series of local camps held in Port Alice, Port Hardy, Port McNeill and Sointula, if high enough turnout allows. The week culminates with a combined jamboree for all players at North Island Secondary School Friday, July 25.

In Port Alice and Port Hardy the camp is open to players age 6-14. In Port McNeill and Sointula, it is open to players age 4-16.

Registration for the half-day camps is $100 per player for the week, with a full-day camp available in Port McNeill for $185. Pre-registration is available online for all sites at www.worldcupsoccercamp.com, or download the registration form and turn it in with payment locally.
