I am one of the librarians at McMahon Elementary and earlier this week our school had the opportunity to have Coach Chris White, as well as local legend Coach Whittaker, come to host a soccer clinic for our 4th, 5th and 6th graders. Upon siting through their sessions and learning about this incredible program, I was deeply impressed with the approaches and affects of the After-School Soccer Leadership Academy. Coach White has shaped this program to take a cohesively inclusive initiative that focuses on building self-confidence, self-discipline and pro-social skills in addition to soccer experience. His ambitions and goals through this multifaceted design guide our students to be more successful socially, academically, emotionally and physically.
