[NATIONAL GUARD CLINICS] SoccerAmericaNet and SoccerNation News are partnering with the Army National Guard to host a series of five skill development clinics free for soccer players ages 16-18 to attend in March. These player development clinics will take place in Southern California and be hosted by top directors of coaching as well as former U.S. and England national team players.

Free Registration and clinic details: here

Two-time U.S. World Cup player Paul Caligiuri, World Cup and Olympic champion Shannon MacMillan, now director of Del Mar Carmel Valley Sharks, former U.S. national futsal team captain Sean Bowers, now founder of 619 Futsaland Academy Coach at Xolox Academy, and Fox Sports commentator and former English international Warren Barton will be among the hosts.

Former U.S. Soccer scout Rene Miramontes, director of coaching for Crusaders, Frank Zimmerman, director of coaching for Oceanside Breakers, and Michael Duggan, director of coaching for Carlsbad United, are also hosting sessions along with San Diego Development Academy coaches. Presidio Soccer League president Bob Turner is organizing clinics in the San Diego series.

These free clinics are a part of the Army National Guard’s Grassroots Soccer (GRS) program. The goal is to prepare youth players for success at college. The Army National Guard's Grassroots Soccer program was created to inform and educate high school-age soccer players, their parents and coaches on how joining the Guard can assist them with reaching their goals.

The Army National Guard is sponsoring the clinics as well as providing lunch and T-shirts for all the players. College coaches will also be on-site at selected clinics to help answer questions and train players. The free clinics are for ages 16-18 and are open to all interested.

    Hey this is just great and dandy, BUT... when I first read they'd have the clinics in "Southern California," well, I automatically "thought" that it would include areas north of the San Diego area, unfortunately this is not the case. So in closing, is this program going to wend its way north to Los Angeles County, because it is after all within southern California!!!

    "The goal is to prepare youth players for success at college." That is the best quote I've heard in years regarding the US player. Prepare them for College because on a "Professional" level the game is simply not arrived...on all levels! Well done Army.
