KICKERS SOCCER CAMP
Last week was a beautiful and sunny week, and we had 35 children ranging from Pre-K to Grade 7 joining us at the Kickers Soccer Camp led by Jose Figueroa and the coaches. They did a fantastic job in putting together a fun and interactive soccer camp where children of all ages were able to participate and enjoy.
I am so thankful to see our young coaches, who used to be campers, now working dedicatedly with Jose to coach the children. A big shout-out to these amazing coaches: Jonathan Lim, Jonas Kuban, Luke Hardie, Jonas Kuban, Benjamin Tak, Sam Ross, Holly Rail, Bridget MacRitchie, Christian Kisun, Federico Hacker, Malena Hacker and Alex.
Jose, who has been dedicating his summers directing the soccer program, is a great blessing to the children and families. He demonstrates a great pastoral heart, and the children are greatly encouraged by and connected with him and the coaches. He is an inspiration to the children and us!
Enjoy the recap video above and come join our next camp in August! More details here: firstbc.org/kickers.
