Registration under way for youth soccer camp
When town sports and recreation coordinator Mary Wolf is overheard shouting “The British are coming,” she’s not impersonating Paul Revere but rather letting it be know that Challenger’s British Soccer Camps will soon be in Payson. But having the Brits visit is nothing new —Challenger Soccer debuted in the Rim Country in 2008 and has returned each summer since to provide Rim Country youth a glimpse of what the sport is like in the United Kingdom. The arrival of the British, who serve as camp coaches, is more than just sports. While in Payson, the coaches reside with local families — usually those who have children enrolled in the camp.
