Soccer Clinic with the Colorado Rapids!
On Thursday, April 30th, four of our schools (Eagleton, Cheltenham, Valdez, and Barnum) were invited out to Dick's Sporting Good Park to participate in the Play Like a Pro clinic lead by the Colorado Rapids players. The fields were broken up into four stations that each school rotated through. The Rapids players worked with the children on dribbling, heading the ball, goal kicks, and much more. The SCORES students had so much fun and were really excited about meeting professional soccer players and riding on the charter buses provided by the Rapids organization. Their hard work during the two hour practice was rewarded at the end with an autograph signing session and ice cream!
The rest of our schools will enjoy participating in the clinic on Wednesday, May 6th!
