Silver Spring, MD (October 6, 2008) Around 50 children gathered in Gaithersburg, MD on a sunny day in September to participate in a clinic hosted by the Real Maryland Monarchs. This clinic was part of the Reach for the Goal youth initiative aimed to show the youth soccer players of Maryland how to aim high and to succeed both on and off the soccer field.

For a couple of hours, Real Maryland FC staff and players led a group of 50 players in ages ranging from 5-12 through a series of drills and challenges designed to improve their skills and learn more about the game.

“It is great to give back to the community,” said Real Maryland Super 20 Team Coach Roger Fernandez. “To give this kind of support to the children is exciting and we hope to continue doing these clinics throughout the area."

Some of the Real Maryland Super 20 players were able to interact with the children and show off a little of their own skills while teaching them an appreciation for the game these boys and girls are not used to seeing.

“These clinics are all about the kids,” said General Manager David Noyes. “A nice surprise was how enthusiastic and involved the parents were. That is what we need more of in the soccer community, true soccer fanatics looking to develop quality individuals as well as talented soccer players. These are the type of people we want coming to our games.”

Real Maryland FC will host various clinics throughout the area as part of their
Reach for the Goal youth initiative where local youth will have the opportunity to interact with professional soccer players while continuing to enjoy learning the game.
