Free summer soccer camp at Sawer Soccer Park
Bill Sawer will host a free youth summer soccer camp and league at his fields throughout the summer.
The camp has weekly practices for beginners and more advanced players, along with a refereed game each Wednesday. Sawer said he designed the schedule so players could participate in Parks and Recreation games on the other days of the week and still take part in the weekly games at his park.
Practices for beginners ages 10 and younger are from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays at the Sawer Soccer Park on West First Street. The advanced practice for players up to age 14 are at the same time Thursdays. Players can show up whenever they want.
Players are encouraged to bring shinguards but no soccer cleats. Sawer has extra equipment available to use for those without shinguards.
