BPC hosts Summer Soccer Camp for community youth
MOUNT VERNON— The Brewton-Parker College soccer program will host a summer soccer day camp for community youth this June on the Mount Vernon campus. The camp, Monday, June 6 through Thursday, June 9, will begin each morning at 8:30 a.m. and end at noon.
Parents can register their children for the camp now through June 1.
Campers will learn the basics of soccer, an internationally-recognized sport that is growing in popularity locally, said camp director and head men’s soccer coach Mike Dye. Boys and girls ages 5-14 are welcome to join the program. The camps will be staffed by BPC’s soccer coaches and players.
“We had a blast hosting our first camp over this past spring break. The idea is to have these kids have fun while learning the basics of the sport. It is my goal for these kids to walk away from camp having appreciated the sport a bit more, as well as to see the sport grow larger here in this community,” said Dye.
To learn more about the program, contact Dye at 912-583-3181 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attendees are to bring outdoor and indoor shoes, a soccer ball, shin guards, water and a snack is optional. An 8 a.m. drop off is available. The program will be held at the BPC Soccer field behind the Snooks Student Activities Center. Cost is $60 per kid.
Dye is entering his second year as head coach of the BPC Men’s Soccer program. Previously, he was the assistant men’s coach at West Texas A&M University (2009-2010). Primarily working with the defense and goalkeepers, the Buffs were consistently ranked #1 in the nation among all DII schools in goals against and shutouts. While at WT, Coach Dye helped the team to finish the season with a program’s highest NCAA National Ranking of #3 in the country, a 15-2-2 record and a share of the LSC Conference Title.
