Leopards Host Annual Special Olympics Soccer Clinic

Leopards Host Annual Special Olympics Soccer Clinic

BOSTON, Mass. - On Saturday, October 7, the Wentworth Institute of Technology Department of Athletics hosted a soccer clinic for nearly 50 Special Olympians from the area.

Student-athletes from the Leopard men's & women's soccer and men's ice hockey teams were represented and provided drills and instructional games for the Special Olympians.

Wentworth's partnership with the Special Olympics is in conjunction with an NCAA Division III initiative and its purpose is to improve the lives of Special Olympics athletes through their involvement with Division III student-athletes and to foster a mutual learning experience between Division III student-athletes and Special Olympics athletes.

The partnership will serve as another opportunity to demonstrate the citizenship and comprehensive learning attributes of Division III student-athletes. Student-athletes giving back to their local (and often national and international) communities not only adds to the comprehensive learning component of Division III, but also provides a venue for passion and service.

Wentworth will be hosting a basketball clinic and tournament in January.
