Free Kid Soccer Clinics

Kicking It With The Cosmos:

New York Cosmos soccer club will hold a series of free “Back to School” soccer clinics in the coming weeks. Four currently scheduled clinics are being coordinated with youth organizations in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island, and will be available to kids between the ages of 7 and 14 in the first weeks of September.

Cosmos Chief Operating Officer Erik Stover said, “We also see ourselves and our players as part of this community as well. It’s our privilege to give local kids the opportunity to work with and learn from some of our great athletes that play right here in New York.”

Anyone interested in the clinic should go to www.nycosmostdp.com. Space is limited and is filling up fast.

“As a native New Yorker, being able to play for the Cosmos is a dream come true, and it’s made even more special when we get to go into the community and work directly with the next generation of American soccer stars,” said Cosmos captain Carlos Mendes, a Mineola native with more than a decade of experience in professional soccer.

Professional coaches from the NY Cosmos Training and Development Program along with several current players from the New York Cosmos roster will attend the clinics, participate in drills and work directly with the kids.

Afterwards, the players will also be available to meet with the kids and sign autographs.
