Ole Miss hosting soccer camp
The 13th annual Ole Miss Soccer Co-Ed Day Camp will be held July 27-30 at the University of Mississippi.
The camp, which is open to boys and girls ages 4-13, focuses on building fundamental skills and having fun.
Rebels Coach Steve Holeman directs the camp, which features many of the Rebels’ players as staff coaches.
“We want to offer an inexpensive opportunity for the local soccer community. This is a great chance for kids to learn more about the sport, meet our players, and have a great time doing it,” said Holeman. “Most importantly, we want to help these kids develop their passion for the sport. We have a vested interest in developing in-state talent.”
Several of the Rebels’ varsity players began as campers, including Tupelo High School product Hannah Weatherly. Holeman is glowing in his praise of the talented striker, often referring to her as a magician, noting that Weatherly can turn nothing into something better than almost any player in the Southeastern Conference.
“Hannah is evidence of the level of player this state is capable of producing,” said Holeman. “We hope our camps will help to develop more players that share Hannah’s passion for the sport. When you see the things that she can do with a ball, it’s really something special. She’s a great advertisement for Mississippi soccer.”
Rebel coaches and players will instruct the campers in soccer skills such as dribbling, shooting, and heading for two hours each day. The camp features a low camper to coach ratio to ensure that every camper receives individual attention. Goalkeepers receive specialized training from the Rebels’ goalkeeping coach Melinda Scruggs. The cost of the camp is $100, which includes a free T-shirt for each camper.
