No school on Monday doesn’t mean a day off for the girls’ soccer team as they will be hosting their annual President’s Day skills camp for area children in the fieldhouse.

“I think it’s a great service opportunity,” head coach Elizabeth Mokler said. “It’s also a great way to get kids passionate and excited about a team sport.” 

The camp is $20, with sessions available from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and 1-3 p.m., with all kids receiving a Liberty soccer t-shirt.

In addition to connecting with community members, the camp offers the players a way to practice their leadership skills.

“It’s a learning opportunity because it’s a different perspective for the girls.” Mokler said. “They are used to being coached and now they get to coach. The girls run it, they prepare the drills and teach everything.”

For returning players like captain, junior Ally White, the event is something she looks forward to. 

“I always look forward to it,” captain and junior Ally White said. “The kids are excited to play and I’m excited to play and it just gives a good energy for our day off school.”
