The Camp25 Soccer League, in partnership with Franklin’s Department of Parks and Recreation, concluded on Wednesday, July 18. For five consecutive weeks at Armory Field in Franklin, children ages 4-11 played soccer.

Team “Camp 25”

The league consisted of six teams with a total of 70 soccer players. Over 50 percent of the kids had the opportunity to play soccer for the first time. All teams were sponsored and named after local businesses/organizations. The teams’ names included US Express, Down The Middle, Camp25, Franklin Parks and Recreation, Kids Kab, and Deb’s Hair Studio.

Eric Benton, Executive Director of Camp25, would also like to send a huge thanks to Franklin Parks and Recreation.

Franklin Parks and Recreation provided the organization with soccer goals, balls, and a field. Camp25 is a non-profit organization that provides camps for kids when school is out.
