Soccer Team Puts on Free Clinic at Local Elementary School

Amy Quintana helped set up the soccer clinic

May 7, 2012

RUSTON, La. – On Friday afternoon the Louisiana Tech soccer team put on a free soccer clinic at Cypress Springs Elementary School in Ruston for about 80 kids. The event was put together by senior Amy Quintana, who is a student-teacher at the school.

“I set it up as a fun activity because on Fridays we always try to award our classes for their good behavior,” said Quintana. “The kids were so excited to be out there and really enjoyed themselves. The teachers were great and very willing to work with us to teach the students something new.”

The Lady Techsters spent an hour at Cypress Springs with the first 30 minutes dedicated to ball handling skills and the rest of the time the children were split into teams to play some scrimmages against each other.

“I am very proud of my team, who once again gave up their free time to help in the community so close to finals week,” head coach Kevin Sherry said. “They are a very special group of young women and I am very honored to be their head coach. Community service is an essential part of our team culture and it is typical of this team that on the day we celebrate joining Conference USA they are out in the community giving of themselves for the betterment of others.”

The clinic is another in a long list of community service type events that the soccer program puts on every year for the local community.
