NCAA to Host Free Youth Sports Clinic at UWF
Nov. 7, 2006
PENSACOLA, Fla. - The National Youth Sports Corporation (NYSC) in collaboration with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) will conduct a Youth Education through Sports (YES) Clinic for soccer, volleyball and field hockey at the University of West Florida on Saturday, November 11.
The clinic runs from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at the UWF Field House. Registration runs from 8-9 a.m. Registration is limited to ensure that group instruction sessions are small; therefore, early enrollment is strongly suggested. Girls and boys, ages 10-16 are eligible to participate. All applications must be signed by a parent or guardian to be eligible.
The YES Clinic puts you in the game as part of the NCAA's premier outreach to youth across the country. The clinic includes skill instruction, conditioning and life skills sessions with collegiate coaches and student-athletes. There will also be a parents' session on youth sports issues.
The following NCAA II institution head coaches have been selected to serve as instructors for this year's clinic: Laura Taube, University of Alabama at Huntsville women's volleyball; Carlos Elizondo, Eastern New Mexico University men's soccer; Gary Kagiavas, Edinboro University women's soccer; Fleur Benatar, Texas Woman's University women's soccer; Diane Monkiewicz, Mansfield University women's field hockey; and Betty Wesner, Kurtztown University women's field hockey.
Participants should wear athletic clothes and shoes for both indoor and outside skill instruction. Each participant will receive a free t-shirt and goody bag.
