Nyack Women's Soccer Team Assists With YMCA Clinics

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Wednesday December 9, 2015


Members of the Nyack College Women’s soccer team are serving in the community by assisting Rockland YMCA Fitness Director Hector Ocasio with soccer clinics for youth aged 6-10 years old on Fridays from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Y on 35 South Broadway in downtown Nyack. Youth learn the fundamentals of the sport such as passing, shooting, dribbling, and controlling the ball.

The fee for the eight-week sessions is $25 for YMCA members and $105 for non-members. The current session runs through February 5, 2016. A spring session will run from Feb 26 to April 15.

Says Mr. Ocasio, “The instruction provided by the volunteers from the Nyack College Women’s soccer team has been a tremendous boost to the quality of youth sports instruction we provide at the YMCA.”

Head Coach for the Nyack Women’s soccer team, Jodel Wright, commented, “It is an extremely proud moment for the Lady Warriors to have been given the privilege to educate kids in the sport we love. This is a great opportunity for the team to give back to the community that we are a part of and be positive role models for these kids. Our goal through the soccer clinics is simply to be a supporter of youth in the Nyack community, who have a passion for the game.”
