NWTA offers soccer camps

The Northwest Training Academy is offering a series of summer soccer camps that will allow players to fine-tune their soccer skills or help beginners be better prepared for the upcoming season.

When playing on a team and only practicing twice a week, coaches don’t have time to help you fine tune players’ skills, that is where NorthWest Training Academy can help. NorthWest Training Academy is a local company on Whidbey Island. That is why we can offer the same if not better products for half the price.

All of the camps will be conducted at Fort Nugent Park in Oak Harbor.

The Soccer camp is Aug. 4 to 7 at a cost of $55 per player.

This camp is for everyone of any and all skill levels. There will be two separate sessions run for this camp and there are 10 spots left in each session.
