Tetrabrazil Soccer Camp Coming Back to Bath

Young soccer players in the area will have the opportunity to improve their skills this summer, as Tetrabrazil Soccer Camp is returning to Bath County August 1st – 5th at Valley Elementary School. This professionally run camp will feature experienced Brazilian coaches who will help young players hone their skills, learn new moves and improve team play. Campers will also learn about the culture of Brazil, and even a few words of Portuguese. Sessions will be available for campers ages 4 to 14.

Camp organizers are holding a series of fundraising events to provide scholarships to help lower or even completely cover the cost of attending. Any family who helps with the fundraisers will be eligible for a scholarship.

The next event will be a Family Fun Day to be held Saturday, May 21st from 3:00 -8:00 at the Parks and Recreation ball fields at Valley Elementary. Activities include corn hole, relay races, horseshoes, face painting, bocce ball and bouncy houses. There will be visits from Smokey the Bear and McGruff the Crime Dog, and Canine Officer Binti and her handler Officer Colaw will demonstrate her skills.  A Tetrabrazil coach will also be there to hold three free one hour soccer skill clinics, which are open to any child 4-14 to participate, whether they plan to attend the camp or not. Concessions will be available, as well as a “basket alley”, which features a chance to win baskets filled with goodies, including  NASCAR memorabilia, kitchen items, gardening, auto care and more. These baskets will be on display at BB&T Bank May 12th – 20th, and chances can be purchased there or at the Fun Day.

For more information about the event or the soccer camp, contact Ellen Miller at 540-839-5885 or Erin Dilts at 540-839-2818.
