The performance of the U.S. men’s soccer team in the Gold Cup and the U.S. women in the World Cup is having an impact on young boys and girls all across the country.

In Douglas Alan Ramos has been hosting an Aztec Soccer Camp every afternoon at the Eighth Street Park. The first session began June 1 and ends this week. The second session starts July 1.

“The Aztecs soccer clinic has been going great so far,” Ramos said. “The parents have been very supportive of their kids.”

Ramos stated he has been averaging 30 plus kids each day.

“I agree the success of the U.S. men’s and women’s national team have added to the interest in soccer, especially with the U.S. women’s national team doing amazing in the Women’s World Cup,” he said.

Ramos added he wants to thank Douglas High School boys’ soccer coaches Victor Ramos (his father) and Alfonso Romero for attending some of the clinics. He also thanked Marco Romero and Felipe McGrew for providing equipment for the clinic and Chuey Duarte for also offering his support.

“I want to especially thank my former players and students from Cas Middle school that help me every day at the camp. Sergio Soto, Fernanda Herrera, Yatana Acosta, Kariely Tovar, and Jorge Abril,” he said.

Registration for the July clinic will take place Saturday, June 29 from 8 to 11:30 a.m. at the Eighth Street Park.

Cost is $40 per player.

“The clinic’s objective is to better prepare players for AYSO and high school soccer leagues while having fun,” Ramos said. I want to also thank parents for being very supportive. I plan to continue the following year.”
