The West Virginia University men's soccer program will be offering another FREE clinic!

The Mountaineers will be hosting a soccer clinic for children ages 4-13 years old (children may not participate if they are currently in high school) on Friday, April 26 from 5:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. The clinic will take place at the WVU men's soccer practice field, located behind the WVU Coliseum.

The clinic is 100% FREE OF CHARGE! It is our way of saying THANKS for your dedicated support to our program, and our way of showing you just how much the community and state means to us. This past February and March, the men's soccer team hosted two clinics with over 250 children from the community participating and having an opportunity to enjoy the Mountaineers up close and personal.

"It is a great opportunity for us to give back to a community and a sport that has given us all so much. We had such an overwhelmingly positive experience during our winter clinics,” coach Marlon LeBlanc says. “I felt it was important that we continue to offer opportunities like this for the kids. As a father of two young children, I want them to be active and healthy. As the leader of this program, I also want my players to understand and appreciate the importance of serving others. These clinics give our program a chance to be positive contributors to the community and allow them to truly appreciate the responsibility of being a Mountaineer."

To participate in the clinics, all children need to pre-register.

Following the clinic, the Mountaineer men's soccer team will play an exhibition match at 7:30 p.m. versus the WVU men's soccer alumni team. Admission to the game is also FREE of charge and will be held at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium.
