Sports summer camp works to make young athletes better soccer players
AMARILLO, Texas (KVII) —
The Westar Futsal Club is gearing up for its summer camp, aimed at develop footwork and other skills needed to play sports like soccer. Futsal is a popular international sport that is similar to soccer, but is played indoors with five people on each team.
Westar Futsal recently came to Amarillo just over a year ago. The summer camp will run August 8- August 10, with three one-hour sessions held at the Amarillo Netplex.
"It's a little easier for kids to control the ball, because the ball is smaller and it's a little bit heavier, said Camila Cunha. "When they transition to soccer it's easier," she added.
The camp is available to kids age 5 and older.
