Winnipeg soccer players got the the chance to learn some new kicks and tricks from world-class pro Desiree Scott Sunday.

Scott, a Winnipegger and soccer Olympian, hosted her first annual soccer camp Sunday at the Seven Oaks Soccer Complex.

"I'm just trying to get them to get excited about soccer, just sort of doing some of the drills on a daily basis with my national team, my pro teams, just some agility work, some speed work, shooting, attacking and a little bit of scrimmage to finish."

The camp was open to girls age nine to 18 and was all about giving back to the community, said Scott.

Proceeds will go toward KidSport, a charity that helps remove financial barriers to children's sports.

Scott said KidSport is what allowed her to play to soccer.
