VANDALIA — Overcast skies last week did not stop the Butler Aviators Boys soccer team from running their annual skills camp for kids.

This year the camp drew 40 campers to come learn and play the game of soccer with the high school team.

“We teach the kids the basic elements of the game, and allow them to utilize their new skills in open play,” said head coach Steve Doring.

The camp is four days long, each day focusing on a different aspect of the game. Over the course of the camp, the boys are teaching the campers skills like dribbling, shooting, passing, and defense.

“It’s a great way to pass on the love of the game, as well as new skills to the kids who will be coming to the high school level in a few years,” said Doring.

The Butler High School Boys Soccer team has been hard at work this summer in preparation for their 2017 season. Their home opener is August 18 against Chaminade Julienne with kickoff set for 6 p.m.
