Men's Soccer Holds Annual CAPS Clinic
April 4, 2013
COLUMBIA, S.C. - The South Carolina men's soccer team held its 14th Annual C.A.P.S. (Child and Parent Soccer) Clinic on campus in Columbia recently. The event benefits Children's Chance, an organization aiding children with cancer and their families.
The annual clinic is geared towards parents and children being together to learn the game of soccer from the Gamecock coaching staff and team. It is a great opportunity for children and their parents to spend a day learning the fundamentals of soccer.
"The Child and Parent Soccer Clinic each year is one of the highlights of our team community service work," South Carolina head men's soccer coach Mark Berson said. "This clinic gives our players and staff a chance to work with the young players in our community and their parents, and have an afternoon of fun learning the game of soccer. Coaches Spencer Lewis and Joey Worthen and our Gamecock players did a great job again with this year."
"I'm always amazed at how much fun the team has with the kids that attend the clinic," Executive Director of Children's Chance Tom McGee said. "They make the day so enjoyable that the kids don't realize until later how much they are learning. It has to be the best clinic around! Thanks to Coach Berson, Coach Lewis and Coach Worthen, and the entire South Carolina men's soccer team for making the CAPS Clinic such a great experience."
South Carolina continues its spring exhibition season with an April 13 event in Rock Hill, S.C. The Gamecocks will face Davidson at Noon and UNC-Wilmington at 6 p.m. at the Manchester Cup.
