About 40 kids in grades K-3 participated in the second day of soccer camp Tuesday at the Camdenton High School soccer field. Kids in grades 4-6 and 7-8 are also at the camp this week.


Camdenton High School boys' soccer coach Jason Ingold said when it comes to teaching soccer to kids 9 and under, he keeps it simple.

"We go over some fundamentals, but really, we try to let them have as much fun as possible," Ingold said.

About 40 kids in grades K-3 participated in the second day of soccer camp Tuesday at the Camdenton High School soccer field. Kids in grades 4-6 and 7-8 are also at the camp this week.

The popular segment occurred near the end, when varsity players joined-in on drills. The first time around, a handful of varsity players were placed in a squared-off area and told to knock the balls away from the dribbling youngsters.

It was mostly an easy time for the varsity players. Then, the tables turned.

When the kids got their turn at knocking away the varsity players' balls, organized chaos ensued.

"It was pretty fun," varsity player Jake Schuster said. "I felt kind of sorry for the kids at first...then they got to go at us.”
