  • The Missouri Comets Major Indoor Soccer League team will conduct two local clinics this month.
    The Comets will have a camp from 10 a.m. to noon, July 23-27 at the Independence Athletic Complex, and from 10 a.m. to noon July 30-Aug. 3 at Legacy Park Soccer Fields in Lee’s Summit.
    The Lee’s Summit site will also offer a goalkeepers camp during the same time and dates.
    The cost of each camp is $85. Campers should be between the ages of 5 and 16.
    Camp coaches include former MISL MVP Byron Alvarez, Brian Harris, Vahid Assadpour and Leo Gibson.
    “We’re excited about having these camps in Independence and Lee’s Summit,” Comets spokesperson Gina Schiraldi said. “We’re committed to Eastern Jackson County and want to offer some great camps with great coaches.
    “The players who run the camps know so much about the game and they want to make it fun for all the campers.”
    n In other MISL news, the league announced that a new franchise in Chicago will participate in the upcoming season.
    The yet-to-be named team will play its home games at the Sears Centre Arena, a multipurpose family entertainment, cultural and sports center which holds 9,400 for indoor soccer.
    “Chicago is an important market for the MISL with a great deal of history in the league and a passionate fan base, so we’re obviously pleased to announce this addition, which is another step in the continuing growth of the MISL,” MISL senior director Chris Economides said.
