GW Women's Soccer to Host Summer and Fall Clinics
Rising High School Freshmen Through Seniors Invited to Join Colonials' Coaching Staff and Players
Feb. 20, 2014
WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's soccer program will hold two clinics in the summer and fall months at the university's Mount Vernon Campus for girls who are rising high school freshmen through high school seniors.
The Colonials' two-day Summer Clinic will run from Saturday, July 19 - Sunday, July 20, and will be in support of the Girls Kick It Project, a community-based women's soccer program that uses sports to empower young women and girls in Northern Uganda. GW will collect sports bras and other sports clothing for those who wish to contribute to the cause. Additionally, the Buff and Blue's Fall Clinic will be held on Saturday, Nov. 22, and will be in support of Miriam's Kitchen, a nonprofit organization that provides, case management and mental health treatment to individuals in need, as well as advocates for permanent supportive housing for the homeless throughout Washington, D.C. At the clinic, GW will conduct a Thanksgiving drive for those who wish to donate blankets, outerwear and other clothing items to the local cause.
Each clinic will run from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and will offer coaching sessions of the highest caliber where players will be pushed and challenged beyond their boundaries by the GW coaching staff and members of the team. The two-day Summer Clinic is not overnight.
Participants will take part in field sessions, which includes technical and tactical skill work. There will also be goalkeeping sessions, in addition to small-sided and 11-v-11 scrimmages. The Colonials' coaching staff and student-athletes will also attend a question and answer session where participants can inquire about playing soccer at the collegiate level.
The cost of the Summer Clinic is $200 and the Fall Clinic is $100.
