Sporting KC to play host to clinic for autism today
Sporting Kansas City will join Autism Speaks for a special soccer clinic from 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. today at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park to benefit the largest autism science and advocacy organization in the nation.
“We’re thrilled to once again host Autism Speaks for a fun afternoon of soccer with several Sporting Kansas City players,” club Community Relations Manager Erin Lawless said. “It will be the first clinic at our brand new stadium so it will be a memorable experience for these participants to have a chance to play where the professionals play.”
Sporting Kansas City captain Davy Arnaud, striker C.J. Sapong, midfielder Korede Aiyegbusi and defenders Chance Myers, Kevin Ellis and Michael Harrington will all give tips and techniques to those in attendance while guiding them through soccer drills.
The clinic is open to all ages of individuals with Autism or Asperger’s and their siblings, and serves as the fundraising kickoff for 2011 Kansas City Walk Now for Autism.
