I strongly encourage all current MCHS soccer players to attend this clinic. In addition, all those who are interested in playing this year or in the future are welcome to participate. This is a great opportunity to receive collegiate level instruction prior to the beginning of the season. I had the pleasure of playing three years of college soccer with a number of current Wartburg Soccer staff members, and can personally vouch for their skill in playing soccer and their knowledge in coaching soccer.- Coach Kober
