Rovers Partner with Southeast YMCA for Skill Development Program

 

LOUISVILLE, Ky.-- The River City Rovers are pleased to announce the formation of a partnership with Louisville's Southeast YMCA to bring introductory soccer education to the city's youth players.

 

The Rovers Skill Development Program is an entry-level soccer program aimed at building skills and soccer knowledge through fun and age appropriate games and exercises.  The program consists of weekly sessions conducted by the Rovers' professional coaching staff that will enhance players' basic skills, coordination and understanding of soccer.

 

"We're so pleased to partner with such an elite organization in the Rovers," said Southeast YMCA Program Director Stuart Owens. "Having a professional staff educate the kids will benefit them in so many ways."

 

The program will take place alongside the Southeast branch's normal spring and fall season practices and games, offering the participants an extra day of fun and instruction. Once finalized the Rovers and YMCA will also offer summer camps, with instruction from the Rovers PDL players in addition to the coaching staff.

 

"Participating in the grassroots development of the local soccer community is a priority for the Rovers organization," said Rovers President and GM Nathan Pitcock. "We're excited to partner with the Southeast YMCA to improve the experience of the recreational player through professional coaching and programming."

 

The current spring session is already full, but those looking to participate in the fall season or summer camps can contact Owens at the Southeast YMCA for more information via email at seowens@ymcalouisville.org
