Senior midfielder Nolan Moore talks with a participant during Saturday's "Kickin' it with JT and Friends Clinic.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Saturday's fourth annual "Kickin' it with JT and Friends clinic hosted by the Louisville men's soccer program and head coach Ken Lolla was another terrific success for all involved.
The free clinic for children and adults with special needs included more than 50 participants in attendance while more than 100 volunteers helped with the event. The clinic, which celebrated the gifts of children and adults with special needs while also promoting physical, mental and social development through the vehicle of soccer, was conducted at the Mockingbird Valley Soccer Complex. The event is named for and inspired by JT, a special young man, an avid soccer camp participant and the nephew of Coach Lolla.
Participants in the clinic learned the fundamentals of the game and conducted drills with members of the UofL men's soccer coaching staff, players and other volunteers while also receiving a free t-shirt. The event concluded with free pizza and fun interactions between volunteers and participants.
The 2014 collegiate season, including Louisville's debut in the Atlantic Coast Conference as well as the opening of Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium, is scheduled to officially kick off on Friday, Aug. 29 at 8 p.m., ET against Maryland.
