As the Otters head into the new year, the first group of events planned for 2019 have been announced! The Otters already have several exciting opportunities this year, including the Otters Youth Camp during the 2019 season.
First, on February 3rd, the Otters will hold another clinic for strikers and goalkeepers at Science Hill High School from 1-3 PM. The clinic is open to all boys and girls aged 14-18 and will feature instruction from Coach David Strickland and Tom LaGuardia. Strikers will focus on finishing, while goalkeepers will work on positioning and shot stopping. The cost is $75 and players can contact Coach Strickland by phone at (423) 676-4802 or at firstname.lastname@example.org or to sign up!
The following weekend (February 9th), the Otters will host a 5-v-5 tournament for high school boys aged 14-18 in the area. The cost is $150 and teams will receive game t-shirts and will play a minimum of four games. Teams are limited to seven players. College coaches will be in attendance to evaluate players!
