Soccer "jamboree" offers fun for local children

CHAZY Youth from across the county came together last Saturday to gather for a day of soccer and fun. The day of games marked the hosting of the 10th annual Chazy Soccer Jamboree at the Chazy Recreation Park. According to jamboree director and long-time coach Craig Giroux, there were 16 co-ed teams of Mini-Mites, 16 teams making up the Mites, and 12 squads entering in the Pee-Wee division. Of the 44 teams participating, soccer players from Chazy make up about half the kids with roughly 200 involved in the sport. No awards or trophies are handed out at the games; it is just an old-fashioned fun day of soccer for young athletes, and parent spectators alike, to enjoy, he said. It's just something early in the year to get teams together to play teams that they normally don't play because they aren't in the same league. There's no entry fee; it's just fun for early in the season, said Giroux. Andrew Matott is a student correspondent from Northeastern Clinton Central School.
