CESA-GCRD Establish Community Center Based Training Program.

A Community Outreach Program has been established to provide training and development opportunities for aspiring players.

The CESA/GCRD Community Outreach Program kicked off with daily training sessions at Community Centers throughout Greenville County on March 15th.

CESA and the GCRD have partnered to provide soccer training for children at the local GCRD Community Centers. The " Kicks For Kids " Program began on February 18th with a clinic for all children based at the Community Centers and Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club and was hosted by CESA with support from Christ Church Varsity Girls, USC-Upstate Mens Soccer, Clemson University Mens and Womens Soccer and Furman University Womens Soccer.

On March 15th training sessions began at the centers and our CESA staff will conduct daily sessions at each participating center until Thursday, May 5th. In addition games between the centers will be held on the following Fridays 3/25, 4/1, 4/8, 4/15, 4/29 and 5/6. Games will be held from 4:00-6:00pm at the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club and the Sterling Community Center. Many thanks to the Furman Leadership and Diversity Group as they were instrumental in procuring funding for this program from both Wachovia and Michelin.
