BALTIMORE - The Loyola University women's soccer team will be holding a Spring Fling Soccer Clinic and Game on Sunday, April 3 at the Ridley Athletic Complex. The Greyhound coaching staff and players will hold a one-hour clinic for youth players between the ages of 4-12 at 10:30 a.m. that day before taking on George Washington University in a spring exhibition game. Proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Craig Willinger Fund.
For just $10 local youth players can participate in the clinic and enjoy a full day of fun and educational soccer-related activities. In between the clinic and the game participating youth players will have an opportunity to have their faces painted or get temporary tattoos and meet Iggy the Loyola University mascot.
There also will be raffles for prizes such as Loyola season tickets for all sports, a small-group clinic with the Loyola coaching staff, Loyola soccer gear, autographed items and more. Then, after the Greyhounds take on George Washington, the youth players will be invited onto the field to participate in a "Kick Around with the Hounds" and to get Loyola player autographs.
The Craig Willinger Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit set up to send cancer-stricken children and young adults, to watch the beautiful game where it is played - both domestically and abroad. The Fund strives to raise spirits by offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a match, in person, at a unique soccer venue.'
