Recognizing that the number one activity most of the North Godwin students like to do during recess is play soccer, staff organized a one-week soccer camp.
“We have a great soccer program here,” said fifth-grade teacher Matt Jen, who helped organize the event. “However, we don’t have much in the way of organized sports at the elementary level and the students have not had the opportunity to be coached in how to play.”
The interest was there as organizers hoped for 75 and more than 140 students signed up for the program. Daily averages for the five-day program were always more than a 100.
Made up of 15 volunteers that included staff, middle and high school students, family and friends, students learned skills in dribbling, passing and shooting, and controlling the ball. There were also scrimmage matches.
