    Audience Sports Soccer Camp June 7-9

    Audience 1 Sports will be hosting a soccer camp for children ages 5- to 7-years old on Monday-Wednesday, June 7-9 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

    The camp will focus on players understanding the proper fundamentals essential to playing the game. Small-sided games will be used to reinforce what is learned throughout camp.

    This will be a great way for a child to polish those rusty skills and get ready for the fall soccer season.

    The cost of camp is $40 ($35 if paid by May 30). You may register on-line at www.audience1sports.com.
