LACONIA — The Evangelical Baptist Church is hosting On Goal Soccer Camp at Leavitt Park from Tuesday through Saturday, June 24-28. The program is open for boys and girls entering grades K-8.

On Goal Soccer Camps are designed to provide a fun and positive week of soccer training for players of all levels. Through individual and team training, players will improve their fundamental skills and apply what they learn through small-sided games. Each day includes many fun games and the popular Mini World Cup competition, emphasizing team play and good sportsmanship.

This will be a high-quality soccer camp coached by college athletes. The half-day program will run from 9 a.m. to noon for children entering grades K-1. This program is $135 per person. The full day program is open for kids in grades 2-8 and runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The full day program is $155 per person. If there are two or more participants attending from the same family there is a $10 discount per camper. Early registration before May 24 will result in a $10 discount per camper. Scholarships are available through Evangelical Baptist Church

Camp will conclude Saturday, June 28 with a Family Day, including World Cup team competitions, individual skill competitions, awards ceremony, and a family picnic provided by EBC. Every camper will get to take home an On Goal soccer ball, a t-shirt, awards and prizes, and a camp certificate.

"We are pretty excited to provide the Lakes Region with this high-quality, fun-filled soccer camp, coached by college athletes," said program director Karen Bassett. "I actually traveled around the country for two summers coaching with this non-profit group, On Goal, while I played soccer at Cedarville University in Ohio. It was by far the best thing I have done to use my love for soccer for good to help churches build relationships with families in their community."
