UW, LCCC team up to host free kids soccer clinic
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The LCCC and UW Women’s Soccer teams were scheduled to host an event on Sunday to teach a few Wyoming kids a few skills on the pitch.
While lightning strikes in the area may have delayed the full plans from moving forward, the teams did get to come out for a little bit.
The event’s main focus was to get the kids excited for the upcoming season, but a couple of players said they gained quite a bit from the experience as well.
“I think it’s really nice because you’ve got to like working together, especially for like a good cause, just coming and being with everyone. Especially here like with my like hometown community, I think it’s kinda fun,” said UW player Eliza Smith.
“You realize that like you do make an impact on little kids and they do look up to you. They’re like ‘oh my gosh you play college soccer, I want to do that’ and it’s just always really fun and makes you feel really good and you just get close with the community,” said LCCC’s Ainsley Basich.
The current plan is for the event to be rescheduled. The new date is still being worked on.
