Whitman College Schedules Girls Soccer Camps for June, July

WALLA WALLA, Wash. - Two five-day soccer camps for girls have been scheduled for this summer at Whitman College.

The first camp, for girls aged 11 to 13, begins on Sunday, June 25, and continues through Friday, June 30. The second camp, for girls aged 14 to 18, begins Sunday, July 9, and ends on Friday, July 14.

The camp coaching staff includes Whitman men's coach Mike Washington, Whitman women's coach Scott Shields, Whitman assistant men's coach Scott Ritts, and Walla Walla Community College men's and women's coach John Charman. Other camp coaches are Mike Duncan, the coaching director for the Seattle area's Northshore Youth Soccer Assocation, and and Mart Oostrom, who received one aspect of his coaching certification through the Royal Netherlands Football Association. Both Ritts and Oostrom are coaches in the Tri-Cities Youth Soccer Association.

Members of the Whitman women's soccer teams serve as camp counselors.

Training and instruction takes place at the Whitman Athletic Fields, a 120-acre complex located two blocks north of campus. During the camp, participants stay in a Whitman residence hall and eat in one of the campus dining facilities.

A year ago, two summer camps at Whitman attracted about 125 participants.

Cost of the camp is $400 per player. For more information, call Washington (509 527-5286) or check the following links:
