TURNER, Ore.– It’s the fun before the storm that is the season starts next week as Cascade Girls Soccer Head Coach Robert Leon and his program held the first day of its Kids Camp.
There was a good turnout for the camp, roughly thirty kids from kindergarten through third-grade came Monday morning to kickoff the three-day camp at Cascade High School. Campers trickled in, some as walk-ups, others had pre registered and were split up into two separate groups. Kindergarteners and first-graders were on one side of the pitch with the second and third graders on the other side as they worked on skill development, the fundamentals and the important concepts of the game.
“We had a good turnout, from seeing that we’re seeing the future. It’s one of those things with Covid and everything. I’m just glad we were about to come out here, having the kids come out here and make it super affordable for the parents,” Leon starts. “It’s something I’m super excited to see a bunch of kids out here.”
Players, current and past as 2020-grad Isabelle Fisher came out to help with the camp, something that Leon pointed towards as cool to see; ran the camp. Giving back to the community they live in and leaving an impression for the younger generation that are coming on up behind them.
“I think it’s really important for me to give back to the younger group as the older group did for me, I think it’s very important to be able to give back,” incoming Senior Ariel Tobiasson said.
The Camp continues Tuesday and Wednesday from 10am until noon at Cascade High School. The Camp is for Kindergarten through fifth-graders
