SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. — Approximately 50 children participated in Social Circle’s soccer youth camp from June 5-8. 

Even with the second day of the camp being rained out and canceled, kids were taught a lot of the fundamentals of the game. 

They worked on dribbling, passing, shooting and even did some scrimmages throughout the week to put their skills to the test. 

Twenty-two high school varsity boys and girls soccer players --- including numerous coaches --- assisted with teaching the children each skill. 

But, all campers received a special treat by participating in the camp, too. 

Players from the East Dutch Lions in Conyers paid a visit to the camp. They scrimmaged with the campers, too, on their visit. 

Before they left, though, they gave a suprise to each child. 

East Dutch Lions, which is a team in the United Soccer League Two in Deep South division, gave every camper a free ticket to the club’s match against North Alabama Soccer Coalition. 

The Lions won 5-1, too. 

Social Circle’s soccer camp was open to kids in kindergarten to rising sixth graders.
