MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College women's soccer program and head coach Hope Clark hosted another annual free youth soccer clinic Saturday, March 8, helping youngsters work on the fundamentals of the game while fostering excitement for soccer in Middle Georgia.

"We always enjoy having area youth on our campus for this clinic," said Clark. "This is the fourth-straight year we've hosted this clinic, and we love seeing some new faces as well as familiar ones each year. It's such a fun day, and our student-athletes just love teaching the game."

Open to youth ages 6-to-13 years old, the clinic was held on Bobcat Field at Georgia College's West Campus for nearly two hours. Participants practiced fundamental skills in a fun and engaging environment.
