Japan visit worth the trip for New Port Richey karate duo

Alexis Campisi and Shawn Roof spent plenty of time accepting awards during their trip to Japan.

The karate duo from New Port Richey participated in two tournaments, one in Osaka and another in Tokyo, and combined to win nine medals.

Alexis, 15, won a gold, a silver and two bronze medals in kumite (fighting) and kata (form) during her first trip outside the United States.

Shawn, 17, captured one gold, three silvers and a bronze in the same events.

"Physically, I knew they were capable of it," said Sherri Angwin, their instructor at Ingram's Karate Center. "Mentally, I wasn't sure because it was their first time out of the country. I'm so happy for them. They did beautifully."

Indoor Soccer: Sport + Field in Wesley Chapel is helping extend soccer season into the summer with its indoor soccer program.

The Unlimited Motion Soccer Academy has programs for youth and adults.

The Soccer Kids (ages 4-5) and Lil' Kickers (6-7) programs enable children to enhance their one-on-one skills and develop enhanced play thorough more touches than outdoor soccer.

"Indoor soccer allows you to learn the proper techniques and mechanics in a fast-paced setting," coach Mike Connell said. "Since it's five-on-five, it allows for more touches and more chances to put the ball in the net."

For information on this and other indoor soccer programs, call Connell at (813) 948-5500.

Football and cheerleading: The New Port Richey Police Athletic League will hold football and cheerleading signups from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 19 at Gulf Drive and Grand Boulevard. All participants must bring a birth certificate, recent photo and proof of residence, and must complete a physical by July 14.

Football players must be present at signups to be weighed. A deposit is required. For information, e-mail [email protected]

Basketball: Wesley Chapel High will host two basketball camps this summer. The first will run June 9-13, and the other, July 21-25.

Both camps are for boys and girls ages 6-13, and the cost is $85, which includes a T-shirt and a miniature basketball.

For information, call coach Warren Jones at (813) 794-8700.
