Soccer camp stresses development of skills

"It's really fun," he said. "Seeing them play, they are a lot better than I was at that age. It's looking hopeful for soccer in Crestview.

"I was really surprised by their passing. I would think a lot of them would want to hold onto it (the ball), but they have great passing and they are not afraid to give the ball to someone else."

White's classmate, Zane Kootsouradis, said that while some younger players pass the ball well, several struggled.

"With a lot of the younger ones, it's the passing (that’s difficult)," he said. "Some of them they think they can come out and score on their own, but they are learning.

"It can be a challenge sometimes. Some people pick it up really fast, but as long as you practice, it will come naturally."

Milton said one of camp’s important aspects is the familiarity developed between him and potential players.

"I get to work with them a week and they get to put a name with a face that I'm at Crestview High," he said. "And I get a name to go with a face if I go and see them at middle school soccer or even see them in the area playing soccer."
