The first annual East Jackson Soccer camp was held last week at the EJCHS soccer fields, as well as in the high school gymnasium.

The camp ran from Monday through Friday. Organizers said around 50 participants came out to take part in the camp, which also included an advanced camp. Kids ranging in age from six to 14 from all three local school systems took part, and organizers said the camp went really well.

Organizers said they saw a lot of talent from those who took part, and that next year, they hope to be able to have a camp for high school aged kids next year.

Organizers said they also hope to be able to hold a soccer tournament for middle school players in the future.
