The kids were having a ball down at Parksville Community Park again on Saturday as part of the long-running Soccertron soccer camp.
“It’s really good — you get to learn lots of stuff and its fun,” a sweaty and smiling eight-year-old Jeremy Pope replied clutching the ribbon he earned from the shoot-out competition.
This is the fourth year Jeremy and his family have come to Parksville to be part of Soccertron.
“It’s going great,” confirmed Scott Metcalf, aka Coach Stretch, as the young footballers broke for refreshments.
“We have about 60 kids in the morning session, and 36 in the afternoon and about 28 full-dayers, and that’s up from last year — we even had a waiting list.”
