SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College women’s soccer team just finished up a four week clinic with the YMCA.
“The clinic was a great start to prepare these kids for their upcoming seasons this spring,” SC coach Stefan Skillman said. “We had over 50 kids participate ranging from fifth through eighth grade.”
Each week the players worked on improving and learning various turns and skills along with passing technique.
“It was amazing to see how the players learned new skills which were eventually being used more and more in the games,” SC freshman Baylee Baker said.
Throughout the clinic, the SC soccer players conducted activities, instructed and participated in the games.
“As we tried to teach and help the players learn, they were teaching us how to coach, which is totally different than being coached,” SC freshman Mackenzie Muir said.
Multiple players commented on how it was enjoyable to see the YMCA players’ enthusiasm and their love for playing soccer.
