KidSport Winnipeg and Desiree Scott, 2016 & 2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist, Pro Soccer Player with the Utah Royals and member of the Canadian Women's National Team and Canada West Hall of Fame, announced the fourth annual KidSport soccer camp taking place on Saturday, Nov. 23 and Sunday, Nov. 24, 2019 at the Garden City Community Centre.
"We have taken a little break, but I'm so excited that we are back for the fourth camp," said Scott. "My camps for KidSport have always been an important event for me and one I really enjoy putting on, so I'm pumped we are able to bring it back this year! As always, I want all the participants who come out to enjoy themselves while getting to experience a fun day of soccer-specific drills, and hopefully gaining a little more motivation to go after their goals. Teaming up with KidSport Winnipeg and giving back is so very important to me and I look forward to being back on the pitch with the kids doing what we love!"
Scott, along with some of Manitoba's top players and coached, will take kids through soccer-specific speed and agility training, fundamental drills and ball familiarity exercises. Along with the technical side of the game, the camp is also about having as much fun as possible while learning other important skills such as teamwork, leadership, dedication, self-confidence and how hard work pays off.
The camp is for girls aged 8-18 years old. Registration is open to the public.
Community-sponsored girls who have been funded by KidSport Winnipeg to play soccer in 2019 will also be in attendance.
"Desiree Scott is a true, homegrown soccer superstar. As a KidSport kid herself as a youngster, Desiree understands better than most, the role KidSport plays in helping to get kids off the sidelines and into the game," said Rick McGregor, KidSport Winnipeg Chair. "With her soccer camp, she pays it forward, showing young girls who attend her camp, the hard work, dedication, perserverance and teamwork required to succeed in both sports and life. Desiree is a true inspiration to Winnipeg's youth and her dedication and desire to give back to the community, with her infectious personality and energy at her camp inspired a new generation of future stars. KidSport Winnipeg is extremely proud to have both Desiree and the Sexton Group on out team!"
