Dansville girls’ soccer coach Arin Belden is seeing some fruits of her labor, along with the hard work of many other youth program coaches. The Dansville Summer Soccer Camps were the week of Aug. 6-10.

A pair of camps ran during the course of the week as the Dansville Mini Mustangs Camp for both boys and girls in second through sixth grades ran 9-11 a.m. each day and the Mustang Team Camp ran noon to 2:30 p.m. for girls in seventh through 12th grades.

“This year’s camps were great,” Belden said. “We had more youngsters participate than ever before in both camps”

There were 29 in the Mini Mustangs camp and 31 in the Team Camp — 60 players in all

“I think one of the neat things was the fact that many of our varsity girls came to the early camp for the youngsters to help out there,” Belden added. “They helped the younger players with their skills and were great role models for them as well. You can’t ask for much more than that from this group of girls. I was very pleased.”

In addition to skills and drills, there were a number of competitions and there were other special awards given out. There were Camper of the Day awards given out each day and then finally a Camper of the Week. Camper of the Day awards went to Maddie Failla, Braelyn Potter, Madison Wilcox, Maddison Lee, Mackenzie Lawless and Grace Rittenhouse. For the boys, Mason Wolcott, Landon Potter, Zack Kreiley, Jacob Cotter and Caleb Kendall. The Campers of the Week were Abbigail Briggs for the girls and Baden Briggs for the boys.
