For budding Beckhams, and the whole community, SoccerFest 2007 is coming to town this weekend.

The South Whidbey Youth Soccer Club is staging its first ever All-Island SoccerFest from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District fields on Langley Road. Organizers hope it evolves into an annual affair.

SoccerFest will feature tournaments for three age groups and include teams from South Whidbey and Coupeville.

The fest will include carnival-type, soccer-themed games such as timing the speed of a kicked soccer ball, shot accuracy and juggling with feet only.
