The British are coming. The British are coming. And don’t forget the Brazilian.

OK, it’s not an invasion, just soccer coaches coming from afar to conduct a camp from July 31 to Aug. 4 in Miles City.

It’s actually three camps in one — British Soccer (recommended for ages 3-11), TetraBrazil (ages 12-19) and First Kicks (ages 3-4). All are at Bender Park, according to a news release from the Miles City Youth Soccer Association.

Coming to Miles City and representing British Soccer is Daniel Dyke, a 19-year-old with 10 years of playing experience. He will be one of two British coaches at the camp; the other is yet to be named.

Italo Resende, who has a degree in physical education, has coached and played at several venues in Brazil. The 25-year-old has signed on with the TetraBrazil Soccer Academy for the 2017 season and looks forward to working with American players.

Resende has considerable experience working with players ages 11-19.

The half-day sessions are from 9 a.m. to noon or 4-7 p.m. and the full-day includes both 3-hour sessions. The First Kicks is from 8-9 a.m. and is for aspiring players. All campers receive a soccer ball and T-shirt.

The camp is sponsored by the Miles City Youth Soccer Association, which requests early registration to assure the maximum number of coaches.
