ALBANY, GA - (WALB) -

World Cup fever has made it way to Albany.

We caught up with these kids at playing soccer at Deerfield's Soccer Camp Monday. Coaches say the camp is designed to get more kids involved in the sport.

Some players say they look to big events like the world cup to improve their skills.

"I like watching pro soccer because it can help me improve my skills just watching it, So I watched some of the world cup," said Carlton Yarborough.

"It's just getting the basic skills, playing games with them and having an enjoyment, right now it's not too serious," said Aly Joslin.

The soccer camp ends Thursday. Team USA is played their World Cup opener against Ghana.
