Dozens of West Point kids laced up their soccer cleats and strapped up their shin pads Friday morning to learn the world's most popular game.
Kids ranging from ages 4-18 participated in the roughly two-hour coaching clinic, hosted by world renown Coerver (Co-Ver) Coaching, at the old fair grounds by the central office for Parks and Recreation. Broken up into groups, the players were taught basic dribbling and controlling skills.
Organizer and president of the West Point Soccer Organization, Thomas Easterling said he was very happy with the turnout despite a little rain in the area.
