(KTVI) - The pros on Team USA are not the only ones on the pitch during the 2014 FIFA World Cup tournament. Local kids are hyped about summer soccer camps throughout the country.

Brian Conry of the Edward Jones YMCA tells FOX2’s Kim Hudson why these kids are so amped about a sport that is not American football, baseball, basketball or hockey.

Registration is still open at YMCA summer camps for all sports across the metro. Also, the Edward Jones branch is offering a fall soccer camp. Just visit www.ymcastlouis.org.
