Men’s Soccer Participates in Coaching Initiative for Oyster River Youth Association

DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire men’s soccer program partnered with the Oyster River Youth Association Saturday, Sept. 21, to help coach their U-6, U-8 and U-10 soccer programs.

"The partnership with ORYA provides a fantastic opportunity for our student-athletes to be visible in the community as mentors and role models." said associate head coach Ewan Seabrook. 

"I'm glad to go out and give back to our community, said junior goalkeeper Travis Worra (Lancaster, Pa.). “They support us so much and giving back by encouraging the growth of soccer goes hand and hand. To us as a team, it's not work, it's volunteering. It's fun and it's what we want to do because we love the game and want to see others enjoy it too." 

It was pretty cool Saturday morning to get out there and help out the community,” said senior co-captain Jeffrey Turner (Blandon, Pa.). “It was good to get off campus and have the whole team involved in the clinic. It is a very well run program at the Oyster River Youth Association and we were happy to be a part of it. We all talked about how we used to have camps like this back when we were kids and now its nice to help give back and promote soccer around here.

Following the clinic, the team put its skills to use as they blanked Grand Canyon University in a thrilling 1-0 overtime victory. For more information on the men’s soccer program and Wildcats in the Community, visit www.UNHWildcats.com.
