MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Georgia College head soccer coach Hope Clark, assistant coach Matt Seib and members of the team visited the Little Caterpillar Development Center Pre-K classroom recently, helping youngster study the parts of the body.
As part of "My Body" week for Bobcat Soccer, Clark and Seib joined junior Unnbjorg Omarsdottir (Reykjavik, Iceland), sophomore Renee Mike (Couva, Trinidad), and freshmen Hannah Asbell (LaGrange) and Sophia Bonser (Tyrone) to play games with the class of 42 youngsters.
"Going to Little Caterpillars Pre K was an awesome experience," said Omarsdottir. "It was a lot of fun showing all the kids some cool soccer moves and seeing how happy they were; that was really special. I love being able to share my knowledge of soccer with kids."
The Bobcats played games, did some soccer-style juggling, tricks, fast footwork skills, played Simon Says and had relay races with the group.
Bobcat Soccer is back in action Saturday, Sept. 16 at 5 p.m., playing host to the University of North Georgia.
