SportCheck and the Vancouver Whitecaps are bringing the Whitecaps FC Community Clinic to King’s Park. The clinic will be held on Oct. 16 from 1 to 3 p.m. Kids will learn introductory skills and receive instruction from Whitecaps coaches, including women’s assistant coach Carl Valentine, and players at no cost. The camp is targeted for boys and girls aged seven to 10. The first 15 minutes will be used for player check in, then an hour split on introduction/demo and skill sessions. That will be followed by a World Cup style tournament then a wrap up with prizes and autograph session.

Players must register in advance either online at whitecapsfc.com/clinics or call Marlise Buchi at 778-330-1354 or email her at mbuchi@whitecapsfc.com. Check Wednesday’s issue of the Western News for more on this story.
