31 Jul CSC, Lexington Police Activities League host camp for Lexington kids
Commonwealth Soccer Club (CSC) hosted a soccer camp for Lexington-area kids and was sponsored by the Lexington Police Activities League. The camp was hosted at Martin Luther King Park this summer for students in the second through eighth grades.
“The camp was held for 70 children in a range of ages, and most weren’t familiar with the game of soccer,” said CSC Academy Director Gary Maddox. “With the help of all the police organizers and our enthusiastic, professional staff, we were able to create a good experience for all concerned. It is always an honor to serve our community and introduce sports as a positive outlet.”
The camp was designed to familiarize local children with the game of soccer, build teamwork and help the children exercise. The camp was also staffed by the experienced coaches at CSC.
“This experience exposed many of the kids to the concept of sportsmanship,” said Daniel Burnett, community resource officer with the Lexington Division of Police. “It was truly a great camp that both the kids and their parents really appreciated and wanted more of.”
The Lexington Police Activities League and CSC sought to include all eligible kids in the area. Partial scholarships to lower the cost of attending the camp were offered through the Lexington Police Activities League to lower-income families.
