Published Date Written by Lloyd JonesFRYEBURG — Fryeburg Academy Boys Varsity Soccer Coach Bob Hodgman-Burns will run the fifth annual Fryeburg Academy Soccer Camp this summer.
The camp, open to boys and girls in kindergarten through grade seven from across Western Maine and the Mount Washington Valley, runs Monday, July 16 through Friday, July 20.
Coach Hodgman-Burns will be joined by current and former members of the Raiders soccer program for a week of skill and tactical development. Campers will learn proper passing techniques; shooting skills; team play; and there will be individual drills offered to practice during the off-season.
"It's a fun camp," Hodgman-Burns said. "Aside from learning proper techniques, I hope the campers will learn an appreciation for the game.
Coach Hodgman-Burns is in his seventh year as the boys varsity coach at Fryeburg Academy and is the former girls varsity soccer coach at Kennett High. A member of the Kennett High Sports Hall of Fame, Hodgman-Burns was a three-sport standout at Kennett and later at Wheton College.
Camp will run from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Fryeburg Recreation Complex (The Field of Dreams) in Fryeburg on Route 302, just beyond Rite Aid.
The cost of the camp is $60 for the week. Families with two or more campers will receive $10 off the total cost. Each camper will receive a T-shirt and a soccer ball.
All campers are asked to bring shin-guards, a snack, their own water bottle and sun screen.
