NORFOLK, Va. -- This Saturday, the ODU Women's Soccer team will host a Mother-Daughter clinic from 10:00 am-12:00 pm at the ODU Soccer Stadium to benefit breast cancer research. All proceeds will be donated to the Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource and Image Center in Columbia, Maryland as part of the 12th Annual Kicks Against Breast Cancer charity tournament. Registration will be held starting at 9:00 a.m. at the ODU Soccer Stadium. The $25 registration fee as well as all tickets ($2 each) to the exhibition matches following the clinic will go to the Foundation.
The clinic is open to players of all ages and their mothers. All participants will partake in skill instruction along with a mother-daughter game. The price per family is $25.00.
All attendees will then be invited to stay for three Division I scrimmages featuring the Lady Monarchs, the University of Florida and the University of Virginia. At 2:00 pm, Florida and UVa will play an exhibition match. Immediately following, the Lady Monarchs will play host to UVa at 5:00 pm and to UF at 8:00 pm. Admission to the games will be $2 for those who do not attend the clinic. Just like the registration fee, all proceeds will donated to breast cancer research.
The Lady Monarchs are just one year removed from the first ever CAA Championship in program history. The Gators reached the NCAA Round of 16 in 2007 and boasted three All-Americans. UVa also reached the NCAA Round of 16 in 2007 and had two NSCAA First Team All-Americans. With five NCAA College Cup appearances combined in the last two years, these three teams will compete at an extremely high caliber of play.
