Pioneer men's soccer team hosted over 70 youth players on May 5 for a free clinic at Pioneer Stadium prior to their spring game against UC Davis. The entire CSUEB squad participated in the event, along with several members of the women's team, to provide an unforgettable afternoon for the kids, ages 4-12, who represented nine surrounding cities.

“The day was extremely successful both for our athletes and the aspiring youth soccer players,” said CSUEB market coordinator Tenaya Davis, who organized the event. “The East Bay players did a phenomenal job interacting with the youth and creating a welcoming, friendly environment. I think the clinic created a friendly bond between our players and the participants, making it even more special for them to cheer on the team against UC Davis.”
