NEW LONDON, Conn. - The Coast Guard Academy Men's Soccer program is set to host its second Prospect Day/ID Clinic on Saturday, July 15th. The Prospect Day/ID Clinic will provide high school aged male soccer players two opportunities. The first is to learn about the Coast Guard Academy through a typical admissions brief and tour. Second, players will experience a typical instructional training session run by the Coast Guard Academy men's soccer coaching staff. The day will culminate with 11 v 11 matches.
The brief is an introduction to the Academy, cadet life, and the admissions process that will be presented by a Coast Guard Academy Admissions Officer. Registrants will also receive a tour of campus before breaking for lunch. After lunch, the ID Clinic will take place at the Soccer and Track complex along the Thames River. Head coach Chris Parsons and assistant coaches, Pat McCarney and Anthony Occhialini look forward to training the attendees in the afternoon.
"The Coast Guard Academy is a unique institution. We felt it was time to provide interested high school soccer players with the information necessary to determine if CGA is a school of interest," said Parsons, who enters his 16th season this Fall. "In addition, it is a great opportunity to share our coaching philosophies as well as to showcase our fantastic soccer facility."
Space is limited and those interested should fill out the registration form and the ID clinic waiver (at the links below) and return to Chris Parsons via email or US Mail.
