Davie soccer coaches Corbin Kopetzky and Marco Rebollar and many students helped run a soccer camp from July 25-27 for girls and boys.

Kopetzky has been playing soccer since he was 3 and is following in his father’s footsteps as a coach. He enjoys being a coach as he gets to know different sides of student-athletes. He loves watching them grow.

At the beginning of camp, there were stations that focused on dribbling, shooting and defensive skills.

Younger kids worked these drills with fun games such as red light/green light. Avery Yount, Fuller Kate Holt and Riley Almond ran triangle drills with middle schoolers in order to work on passing skills.

They also ran scrimmages, with coach Collin Ferebee getting some action in. Lanna Robinson loved the scrimmages.

Rebollar, who runs the boys soccer team, gave the advice to keep their heads up while playing, communicate with each other and spread out.

In between activities, kids had water breaks and made TikTok for the Davie County Soccer page with the help of Jaden Sink.

Camp counselors helped demonstrate how to do many skills, competed with each other and most importantly had fun.

Kimberly Torres-Ramirez feels honored to be teaching a new generation of soccer players. She enjoyed watching them have fun and hopes this camp and this future generation of soccer players will bring more attention to the sport.
