DICKSON – Both Creek Wood’s and Dickson County’s girls soccer teams came together to hone their skills and get a little more coaching at a soccer camp last week.

Jack Rushworth, a graduate assistant coach with the Austin Peay women’s soccer team, came to Dickson to help Dickson County coach Chris Cardona and Creek Wood first-year coach Kate Siddall.

“Coming out here and working with Austin Peay is an experience for the girls,” Cardona said. “It’s a different method of coaching and it helps the girls understand something sometimes that I can’t get them to understand. It definitely helps a lot with type of experience and this is the one week of the offseason when everyone’s here so it’s almost like team bonding.”

“I’ve been with the girls since May, we’ve been training since the last day of school and it’s been nice to see them progress through the offseason,” Siddall said. “I’ve seen them really progress here at the camp and that makes me really excited for the upcoming season. When these girls hear a college coach tell them they’re doing a good job that can really give them a confidence boost. I think it does nothing but help them.”
