VMI-LED SOCCER CAMP JUNE 27-30 BENEFITS CHKD

For children ages 5-12.

HAMPTON ROADS, Va.—A “Summer Kicks for CHKD” soccer camp, sponsored by Virginia Military Institute coach Stephen Ross and VMI’s Soccer Academy, will be held June 27-30, 6-8 p.m., at Norfolk Academy, 1585 Wesleyan Drive, in Norfolk. The camp is for children ages 5-12, and the cost is $75. The four-session program will feature a top-notch volunteer staff and will focus on technical aspects during the first hour and small-sided play in the last hour each evening. “All sessions will be fun-packed and high energy,” Coach Ross said. “The hospital benefits from the registration fees, and the participants get the fun and the rewards of giving to a worthwhile cause.” For more information, phone (540) 464-7611 or e-mail rossst@mail.vmi.edu.
