Rain and mud couldn't stop our morning of fun - more than 60 young people took part in the 2019 Kids Soccer Clinic at Roosevelt High School last weekend.
Youth ages 4-14 took it to the field alongside the Fresno State Women's Soccer Team to learn more about the game and how to play more effectively and competitively through scrimmages, drills, and fun games.
"In life, you have to be a team player, and we're here to learn how to be a team player and build each other up," said Shatara Cole a mother of five. "Kids don't get out, we depend too much on technology. We need more activities like this and parks for kids."
After the clinic, the kids were treated to a free healthy lunch from Port of Subs and gift bags courtesy of Fresno Building Healthy Communities and Kaiser Permanente. The Kids Soccer Clinic is the first of a three Kids Sports Clinics in partnership with Fresno State Athletics. The project is supported by Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefit Programs.
