It's the Sounders' annual Youth Camper Appreciation Day, which allows about 3,500 soccer campers the chance to watch a Sounders FC training session at CenturyLink Field and interact with coaches and players.
Some details from the club:
The Sounders FC hosted 57 soccer camps for boys and girls ages 4-15 throughout the state of Washington during the spring and summer months. More than 5,000 campers participated. Each camper participated in the SUBWAY® Skills Challenge for a chance to win a $10 SUBWAY® cash card. One boy and one girl from each camp were selected to be eligible for the grand prize, free SUBWAY® for a year. The grand prize winners will be announced during Camper Appreciation Day on Thursday, August 16 at 12:15 p.m.
Sounders FC Youth Camps are presented by adidas and Group Health. Supporting partners include Brotherton Cadillac, ROOT Sports™, SUBWAY® Restaurants of Western Washington, Bruce Titus Eastside Subaru, Xbox® and Outback Steakhouse®. For more information on youth camps visit SoundersFC.com.
Players and coaches also will be available to the media as usual today, so some news should be coming this afternoon ... although probably a little later than usual.
