They may never be World Cup soccer stars, but the kids participating in the annual soccer camp this week had a blast kicking and chasing balls while hanging out with the players from the high school teams who coached them, and maybe had even more fun.

More than 50 youngsters have been working and having fun in the annual soccer camp this week.

The camp is hosted by the Jones County High soccer boosters club at the Jones County Government Center field.

Camp directors are high school varsity coaches Duane Kitchens (boys) and Corey Tanner (girls). Current high school players are serving as instructors and counselors.

The camp, for those in Pre-K through the eighth grade, runs through Thursday.

“The kids are having a good time and hopefully learning some about soccer,” Kitchens said. “The main thing is to generate more interest in soccer. Hopefully some of these kids will want to play soccer in high school when they get older.”

Tanner said it was tough to tell who was having the most fun – the youngsters enrolled in the camp or the high school players helping to teach them.
