Men's Soccer to Host Boys' Skills Clinic on Feb. 20
Jan. 18, 2011
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The Penn State men's soccer coaching staff will host a one-day Soccer Technique and Tactics Clinic for boys in grades nine through 12 on Sun., Feb. 20 at Holuba Hall on the University Park campus. The clinic is tentatively scheduled to run from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and costs $110.
The clinic is intended to give athletes an opportunity to improve both their attacking and defensive skills under the tutelage of the Penn State coaching staff. It will focus on technical and tactical aspects of the game in a fun and competitive environment. Goalkeeper training and instruction will also be available.
Directing the clinic will be Penn State head coach Bob Warming and assistant coaches Jason Mims and Isang Jacob. In his first season in Happy Valley, Warming led the 2010 Nittany Lions to 14 wins, the most since by a PSU team since 2002, a Big Ten Tournament title game appearance, and to the program's first NCAA postseason victory in five years. Penn State boasted one of the nation's most prolific offenses in 2010, totaling 144 points (45 goals, 54 assists) in 23 games, and featured the NCAA leader in goals, assists, and points. Among the winningest active coaches in the NCAA, Warming is just three victories shy of reaching the 400-win milestone for his career.
