The sound of children enjoying the process of learning soccer last week in Enterprise was punctuated with instruction tinged with accents from other countries.

Five instructors from Poland, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, as well as one from Portland, were on hand for the United Kingdom Soccer Camp at Jensen Field. July 30 to Aug. 3.

Around 60 children ages 4-13 attended the camp, sponsored by Wallowa Valley Youth Soccer Association.

The fall 2018 soccer season will run from September through October. Coaches will contact parents during the first weeks of school to provide practice schedules. Registration for players has closed.

Team sponsors and volunteer coaches are needed.
