Soccer clinics for kids — for free

Island youth can work on soccer skills during free drop-in clinics on Saturday, June 22, at the Friday Harbor Elementary School fields.

Families and Neighbors Support Island Rec and Challenger Sports are sponsoring the clinics, aimed at children ages three to 12.

Coaches from the British Soccer Camp program will lead the program. The clinics run from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., ages three to five; 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., 6-8 yrs; and 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., 9-12.

“We started these clinics last summer and they were a great hit.” said FANS president Cathy Kromer. “They’re also a fun preview of the British Soccer Camps that take place later this summer.”

No registration is necessary for the clinics; however, parents should arrive 15 minutes early to sign waivers.

Island Rec is taking registrations for its British Soccer camps in July and Tetra Brazil soccer camps in August, at www.islandrec.org.
