The Clinton City Schools Soccer Clinic is back for the spring semester.

After a successful fall clinic, Knoxville soccer pro Chris Carroll decided to come back for the spring.

The clinic has sessions on Wednesdays and Fridays at the Clinton City Schools high school football stadium.

Players in grades 1-3 meet on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m. The clinic for players in grades 4-6 is on Fridays at 3:30 p.m.

Players should wear athletic clothing with tennis shoes or soccer cleats and balls will be provided for players during the clinic sessions.

Sessions began earlier this month but new players, both boys and girls are still welcome to sign up.

The clinic will emphasize all areas of the game including rules, speed, agility, soccer skills and techniques, coordination, teamwork and sportsmanship.

The clinic provides players with the opportunity to improve upon their game and also serves as another way for young players to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
