Potomac State to hold Summer Soccer Camps

Potomac State College of West Virginia University will sponsor four soccer camps this summer at area schools for boys and girls ages 6 through 17.

The camps will focus solely on the fundamentals of the game through creative teaching exercises and games that will keep the players interested and having fun. The camps will provide the player the opportunity to develop a solid foundation that will help them at every level of the game.  Goalkeepers will receive individual training.

Teams may also register for the camps and will have the opportunity to prepare under top level coaches for the upcoming season.

The camps will be instructed by Head Men's Soccer Coach Raymond Kiddy and Head Women's Soccer Coach Mark Sprouse. Kiddy, who is in his 34th year of coaching soccer, was previously named the Region XX NJCAA Soccer Coach of the Year and the Dapper Dan Pepsi Cola High School Boys Soccer Coach of the Year. 

Sprouse, who just completed his 11th season at Potomac State, led the Lady Cats to an undefeated regular season this year and has been the recipient of regional and conference Coach of the Year awards.

The first camp is being held at Stayman Field on the campus of Potomac State College from July 16-19 and will run from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

The next two camps will be held from July 23 - July 26.
