GW Women's Soccer Staff to Host Weeknight Warriors Clinics
Feb. 7, 2013
WASHINGTON – The George Washington women’s soccer coaching staff will host a series of Thursday night clinics in May and June at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus for women age 22 and over.
The Weeknight Warriors Fundraising Clinics will be held from 6:45–8:45 p.m. on May 16, 23 and 30, and June 6, 13 and 20. Each clinic will offer coaching sessions from the GW women’s soccer staff where players will learn about the game and be challenged to develop their technical and tactical abilities.
“These clinics are designed to develop the skills of females who are continuing to play after college as well as those who have never played soccer before,” head coach Sarah Barnes said. “We had a lot of fun at our last Warriors Clinic and everyone worked incredibly hard. We hope this year’s clinics will be equally challenging and valuable. There is something for everyone here.”
Each Weeknight Warriors Fundraising Clinic will consist of field sessions where players will focus on technical and tactical skills, goalkeeping and small-sided games to ensure players get the maximum amount of touches possible, similar to a game setting. The clinics will also place an emphasis on passing and dribbling techniques, defense and finishing. Each participant will also receive a Weeknight Warriors T-shirt.
The cost of the clinic for all six sessions is $100. For those interested in participating in just the three sessions in May or three sessions in June, the cost is $60. Participants can register online by clicking here. All proceeds, aside from the administrative fee, will go toward the GW women’s soccer program to assist with costs for team meals, travel, equipment and clothing.
