"I am once again very excited to announce the 2009 Lees-McRae Men's Soccer Camp dates for the spring and summer," Whalley said. "One of our goals this year was to make our camps affordable during such an economically difficult time. However, the level of coaching at Lees-McRae soccer camp is of very high quality, which will ensure your child having a great experience. We are looking forward to having the chance again to work with the youth from the region to help develop their play and maturation as soccer players."

All Bobcat soccer camps will be directed by Head Coach Chris Whalley and Assistant Coach Jay Benfield.
