JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 30, 2007) - The ETSU women's soccer team recently did its part to reach out to the local community as they hosted a clinic at Girls Incorporated of Johnson City.
About 35 young girls were treated to an afternoon of fun as the soccer team led them through a series of different activities. In one station, the girls formed teams and played soccer, in another they played a game of "Head-Catch" where a member of the team would toss the ball to a girl and say either "head" or "catch" and the girl would have to think quickly and respond by doing the opposite
"We want to thanks Girls Incorporated for allowing us to come on Friday to host a soccer clinic. We always enjoy Girls Inc. because they always welcome the ETSU soccer team with smiling faces," said head coach Heather Henson. "The young ladies at Girls Inc. always have so much energy. The clinic mainly focused on performing soccer skills, playing small sided games, and fun soccer thinking games."
The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics takes pride in its community service activities and strives for 100 percent participation from its student-athletes, coaches and administrators throughout the year.
