Over 90 attend annual CRYSA soccer camp

CROSSVILLE — Over 90 local children, ranging from 5-14 years of age, had a great time in the annual CRYSA Soccer Camp learning and playing soccer at the Duer Soccer Complex July 23-27. They enjoyed lunch, watermelon and birthday cake as a part of their camp fees. All campers also received a shirt and a soccer ball. Several generous parent donated popsicles on the hottest day.

The Duer soccer complex provided a safe location with wonderfully maintained soccer fields. Camp was led by Dr. Geir Bergvin, volunteer director of coaching for the local Crossville Recreational Youth Soccer Association (CRYSA). He is supported by many community volunteers led by CRYSA board of directors chairperson Angie Spitler.  

 CRYSA is a not-for-profit, locally led volunteer organization supporting local youths in developing and providing positive soccer experiences.

The camp coaches were selected from local talent and all are here because they represent great role models for the younger campers as they are responsible, hardworking scholars and, hopefully, future leaders in the community.  This year they were Erik Bergvin, Paul Bergvin, Ethan Spitler, Abby Spitler, Ron Coleman, Keith Fagan, Patty Jordan, T.D. Schlafer and Laura Swallows. Camp provided elite players with opportunities to improve their tactical and strategic skills by working directly with two highly qualified and experienced coaches and trainers, A.R. Richardson and Geir Bergvin.

Campers enjoyed five days of beautiful weather, improving their skills with the following campers identified as either the most improved or most valuable player in their age group:

Age 4-6: Noah Potter, MIP, and Ellie Strong, MVP

Age 7-8: Anna Wyatt, MIP, and Dominic Olson, MVP

Age 7-8: Hailey Suggs, MIP, and Calvin Wyatt, MVP

Goalie: Calvin Wyatt, MIP, and Daniel Warren, MVP

Age 8-10: Molly Strong, MIP, and Clay Davis, MVP

Age 10-12: Hannah Sherrer, MIP, and Grant Bullock, MVP

Age 10-12: David Bilbrey, MIP, and Kaylian Fuentes, MVP

Age 11-14: Grant Lovett, MIP, and Renee LaBarge, MVP

Age 11-14: Bella Davis, MIP, and Ty Davis, MVP

Elite campers: Summer Hamby and Gracie Regenold, MIP; and Rebecca King and Sammy Zeino, MVP

Overall camp: Zack Reed, MIP, and Aiden Zeino, MVP

CRYSA would also like to recognize dedicated volunteers — Kim Potter, CRYSA registrar; Pamela Carter-Bergvin, camp project manager and scholarship chair; Melanie Graham, finance; Lillian Fox; Lauren Fox; and a special thanks to Tony Davis, Duer Complex.
