LOS ANGELES - The LMU men's and women's soccer teams are no stranger to reaching out to the community's youth, giving back both their time and their soccer expertise. On Sunday, April 6, the Lions were back at it, hosting members of Westchester AYSO Region 7 in a clinic at Sullivan Field.
Current members of the LMU men's and women's soccer teams played games and ran drills with the more than 150 youth who came out. In addition, approximately 20 coaches attended a coaches clinic conducted my LMU men's Head Coach Paul Krumpe.
Westchester AYSO Region 7 also held a sign-up, drawing more than 670 kids to register for their upcoming season.
"Any opportunity for our players, along with the men's team, to connect with local youth players is great," said LMU women's soccer Head Coach Michelle Myers. "Also, to be able to host them on Sullivan Field and share a love for the game is a special way to help our players remind themselves why they started playing in the first place."
Krumpe echoed Myers' statements: "The partnership we have formed with Westchester AYSO Region 7 is an important one for both LMU and the local community. LMU offers the unique opportunity for these kids to see top level Division 1 men's and women's soccer up close and personal. This clinic helped generate some new Lions fans and hopefully, some future Lions!"
