Youth camps and clinics have been in full swing the last few weeks with high school coaches and athletes teaching the fundamentals of their respective sports to youngsters. Above, Raider soccer coach Chuck Bublitz plays a game of “Coach Says,” a soccer version of Simon Says, with a group of kindergartners through third-graders on the first night of the Sidekicks Youth Soccer Clinic this past Monday at the Field of Dreams complex. About a dozen members of both the high school boys and girls soccer teams are helping out at the clinics for players entering grades K-6, which runs through Thursday.

The camp, which began last Tuesday, was divided into three sessions each day for players entering grades 1-3, 4-6 and 7-9. Raider coach Ed Johnson and his players served as instructors. The Hudson Raider ABC Football Camp was also held last Tuesday through Thursday with some adjustments made to its scheduling due to the extreme heat.
