Guest Post: Matt Jackling, Burlington High School Boys Varsity Soccer Coach
My name is Matt Jackling and I am the Boys Varsity Soccer Coach at Burlington High School. I am contacting you to inform you that the boys and girls varsity soccer programs will be running their first ever Varsity Day at BHS on Sunday 9/15.
The event is free for all children, with the U8 and U10 age groups attending from 1-3, and the U12 and U14 players attending from 3-5. The event will occur at Varsity Field at BHS. There will be competitions, give aways, and other events to insure that the day is fun and educational.
Varsity Day is a community outreach event that looks to create a relationship of mentoring and role modeling between our varsity soccer players and the youth soccer program in Burlington. At this event, varsity players will coach and train youth soccer players, incorporating fun, skilled based training with the goal of providing positive support and reinforcing the ideal (for both the players, the children, and the parents/coaches involved) that our high school athletes are role models to the children in our community.
