Spring soccer is in the works!
We are wiping the dust off our soccer ball and working to expand our knowledge to help us provide the best programming possible. In preparation our NB3FIT coaches attended the 2022 United Soccer Coaches Convention in Kansas City, Mo. January 21-23. Director of NB3FIT, Clint Begay led a session at the convention titled, ”Soccer in Native American Communities and How it can be an Example to other Underserved Communities.” Begay spoke on the history of the soccer program and the impact it has had on the communities NB3FIT serves.
“I enjoyed sharing about NB3FIT, what works in our communities and ways that we can all improve for the youth we serve,” Begay said.
The convention is the world’s largest gathering of soccer coaches and was a great opportunity for NB3FIT to learn from fellow leaders on the field.
“It was awesome meeting with other coaches from around the world,” Autumn Quiver, NB3FIT program coordinator said. “We hope to take all of the knowledge that we learned and implement it in this upcoming season.”
NB3FIT has not hosted soccer since 2019 when the season abruptly came to end with the emergence of COVID-19. NB3FIT hopes with a new tailored curriculum, focused on Covid safe practices, it will be able to provide a safe atmosphere for youth to return the field this spring.
Stay tuned for updates on all upcoming NB3FIT spring programs.
