But, for now, the focus is on the boys.

This one-time clinic will feature top level instruction and soccer activities. The details are still coming together, but here's what we know so far:

  • Date: Sunday, July 21
  • Location: WRAL Soccer Center
  • Registration is FREE
  • Lunch will be FREE to any registered participants
  • Players will also receive more free items: Camelback Water Bottle, National Guard Camps & Clinic T-shirt, Carabiner, and a Cinch Bag
This is a great opportunity to bring your team, friends, or come as an individual player or coach and learn some free insights and instruction from people who know the game best. You can register by clicking HERE! We will keep you informed on the latest details that come together (time, instructors, etc.). Remember, registration is limited to boys in high school.
