Free soccer clinic builds skills for lower schoolers
On February 4, KCD Soccer’s Bearcat FC program hosted its first free soccer clinic for our youngest Bearcats. Sixty students in grades JK–4 signed up to learn about world football, and Coach Clark Pollitt brought twenty of his middle school players to help mentor them. Together they practiced dribbling, passing, juggling, and shooting; and at the end, they played a real soccer game. It was a terrific afternoon of world football fellowship!
Coach Pollitt founded KCD’s Bearcat FC program for KCD lower school students in 2011 to promote learning the game and its skills. It has grown steadily over the past seven years, and fifty KCD lower schoolers are currently playing indoor soccer together each week at King Louie’s. Look for information soon about our spring intramural session on campus.
