The Tide Soccer Academy is once again bringing Crofton native and former national team player Emily Zurrer back to the Cowichan Valley for a soccer camp this summer.

The camp with Zurrer and former national team goalkeeper Erin McNulty will include two sessions at the Sherman Road soccer fields on Friday, Aug. 16, from 1-3 p.m. and 3-5 p.m.

A member of the North Cowichan/Duncan Sports Wall of Fame, Zurrer won a CONCACAF championship with Canada in 2010 and an Olympic bronze medal in 2012, appearing in two Women’s World Cups and two Olympic tournaments. She made 82 international “A” appearances between 2004 and her retirement in 2015. She played for clubs in Canada, the U.S., Germany and Sweden, reaching the USL W-League final with the Vancouver Whitecaps in 2010. Zurrer also represented Canada at U20 World Cups in 2004 and 2006, and was tournament MVP at the CONCACAF youth championship in 2004.

McNulty spent more than 10 years with the national team program, and was the starting goalie for Canada’s U20 women’s team.

The camp will include autograph and question-and-answer sessions, and participants will receive a T-shirt.

The fee is $75 per two-hour session, with proceeds going to help local families. Visit tidesoccer.com for more information or to register.
