Adelphi University Women’s Soccer Announces ID Clinic has announced its spring ID clinic for April 23, where players from the ages of 15-22 can learn skills and tips from the two-time East Region finalists.
The clinic, held from 2-5pm on Motamed Field on Adelphi’s Garden City campus, will consist of technical and dynamic training run by the Adelphi coaching staff and current players, with both small-sided games to maximize touches while providing players with a competitive environment to express their love of the game, and larger games so players can demonstrate their knowledge of the game in its entirety.
