Skidmore hosts spring break camp for local youths to support Soccer Without Borders

Posted by Kelsey Yam

The Skidmore men's and women's soccer teams are hosting a fun spring break soccer camp open to all boys and girls, ages 6 to 14, from Saratoga Springs and the neighboring towns. The camp will be on Wachenheim Turf Field, from Monday, April 1 to Friday, April 5. This will be Skidmore's sixth year of running the camp.

Besides for campers, the camp is also looking for cash donations as well as donations of soccer equipment (i.e. soccer balls, cleats, uniforms, etc.). All proceeds from the camp will go to Soccer Without Borders. Soccer Without Borders is a not-for-profit organization that uses soccer as a vehicle for positive change in the lives of youths from underprivileged communities worldwide. Donations are extremely important for the Soccer Without Borders program in Kampala, Uganda, a site where Skidmore has previously sent donations to.

The camp will focus on teaching the skills needed to play at the next level, while also fostering a passion and love for the game.

For more information, to apply, or to donate, contact Kelsey Yam at Kyam@skidmore.edu.
