M-U Soccer in Full Swing



By Brett Barnes


In a football-crazed community like West Milton, OH, other fall sports are often-times pushed to the back burner. But on the third week of July, 2013, soccer took center stage. In the midst of summertime heat and activities, 54 kids ages 4 to 13 took time out of their “schedules” to play and learn more about the game that they love.

Led by head varsity girls’ coach Andy Grudich along with a slew of former players and current varsity players (both girls and boys), the M-U soccer camp provided sound instruction and more importantly fun for future Bulldogs.

“The camp went very well, the weather cooperated. We have three goals for each camper: They learn something each day, have fun, and they are tired at the end of each day,” Grudich quipped.

The camp provided for a theme of the day to get kids interested along with a move for the day to improve soccer skills.

Grudich continued, “We had themes each Day: Monday- Dribbling, Tuesday-Passing, WednesdayTrapping, Thursday- Shooting, and we also taught a move of the day each session. But we had fun themes too: Crazy Sock Day, USA Day, Camp shirt day. The kids had fun.”

In the end, that is what it is all about.
