Thursday, Sept. 15 is the deadline to register for the .
The clinic will be held rain or shine on Wed., Oct. 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. on the EHS Memorial Field.
The cost of the clinic is $25 per player and that includes a 2011 soccer clinic t-shirt for those who register by Sept. 15.
Conducted by EHS coaches and players, the program is designed for U8 through U14 boys soccer players and will consist of drills and exercises to improve soccer skills and speed of play.
The clinic is a major , the EHS boys' soccer team booster club. This year the GHSA run the Hornet Hut (snack stand) to feed those parents and siblings who stay during the clinic.
GHSA clinic coordinator Donna Brown says the GHSA also expects to have limited quantities of team soccer apparel and booster club items available for purchase that night too.
Brown points out that the GHSA is adding a community service component to the clinic. “This year,” Brown said in an email message to Emmaus Patch, “we are asking all participants to bring their used or new soccer cleats, shin guards, balls etc., to our clinic for collection to help the young boys in our club in the spring. Any excess items will be donated to a local needy soccer organization.”
