The Cincinnati State Women's Soccer team (seen in the back row of the photo above) helped staff the Warren County Soccer Academy's (WCSA) Junior Academy Super Saturday for soccer players ages 5 to 7 (seen in the other two rows in the photo) on Sep. 16 at McClure Soccer Complex in Lebanon, OH.
The Super Saturday event is an hour of small-sided games on over ten fields, allowing up to 100 kids to enjoy the game.
The Junior Academy program gives Warren County children a free introduction to soccer while promoting teamwork, exercise, and unity, in a safe and fun environment.
“It is a large undertaking to make sure the fields are staffed so the kids can get positive direction and guidance,” said Rob Hoover, director of the WCSA Junior Academy. “We thank the Cincinnati State women for pitching in!”
Josh Seuberling, the president of the Warren County Soccer Academy, added, "It's challenging to make sure that the 5 to 7 year-olds are following instructions and having fun."
"Typically, we have about six coaches and a couple of board members at Super Saturdays to help out. However, this past Saturday we relied on the Cincinnati State Women's Soccer team, and it worked out perfectly."
"These young women represented Cincinnati State very well as they engaged with our youth and provided us with a huge service," Seuberling said.
