The United Futbol Academy summer camp kicked off Monday morning at Rock Creek Park with the biggest group of participants the camp has seen. Forty-three kids from all over north Georgia were ready to get on the field to learn the fundamentals of recreational soccer. “Recreational soccer is for fun,” said UFA Mountains Branch Director William Mostellar. “Anybody who wants to play is given the opportunity to play. We take as many players as we have field space and volunteer coaches to accommodate.” UFA Mountains, an offshoot of United Futbol Academy, services the north Georgia communities of Dawson, Fannin, Lumpkin, Pickens and Townes counties. The soccer club has contracts with each county stating that they are the soccer providers for the communities.
