MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College women’s soccer team and head coach Hope Clark are pleased with the success of their first soccer clinic of the 2011 year, The Father-Daughter, Mother-Son Valentine’s Soccer Clinic.

“This clinic was a huge success and a great way to connect with our community,” said coach Clark. “It was an excellent way for our student-athletes to realize how much influence they have on these youths and to use soccer as the tool helped us make a connection. It was a lot of fun for our girls and we appreciate the involvement from the community and the Old Capital Soccer Club. We look forward to growing our clinics and our involvement in the community.”

Not only did the participants enjoy a great day of soccer but also every child received an autographed 8x10 photograph of the team. There was a T-shirt winner for the Most Involved Parent-Child Group and that award went to Myrna Olsson-Owen and her son Gabe. The team also had the Most Spirited Camper award. Brian Sherwood was the winner and the prize was an autographed Little Feet soccer ball.
