BANNER ELK, N.C. - Lees-McRae College men's soccer head Coach Matt Thompson has announced the times for the summer soccer camps.
The 8th annual summer camps will run through the months of June, July and August. Shuttle vans will be provided for Watauga and Avery Counties. The dates for the two youth camps will be June 21st through June 25th and August 2nd through August 6th. Times for each camp will be 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and a shuttle bus will pick campers up at Watauga High School each morning at 8:30 a.m. and again drop off at 4:30 p.m..
Coach Benfield will also hold a Goalkeeper Academy June 18th through June 20th. Jay has been an integral part in the Bobcat success over the last two seasons, culminating in senior and three year starting goalkeeper Sean Paradise earning All-America honors in 2009.
The LMC men's soccer camps were once again a great success last year with over 200 campers attending.
"I am very excited to announce the dates for camps this summer, I look forward to getting involved with the youth and families in the community," Coach Thompson said.
All Bobcat soccer camps will be directed by Head Coach Thompson and Assistant Coach Benfield. The Bobcats made a run to the NCAA Division II National Championship Game and will be returning many players that contributed to last years' success. The team also repeated as Conference Carolinas Regular Season Champions. These players will be a part of the coaching staff at camps this summer and anticipate a highly enjoyable atmosphere where campers can learn and grow as soccer players.
