Soccer skills and life lessons at Everett camp

Six-year-old Raven Rezs of Everett dribbles the ball Monday during the first day of the Casino Road Futbol Academy, sponsored by the Everett Police Department.

While playing soccer draws youths to the camp, the underlying focus is educating participants on what it takes to be a good citizen in the community.
