Open Goal Project, Chevron, Fresno FC partner for Chevron Soccer Academy clinics
in late September, around 150 boys and girls from communities 50 miles outside of Fresno boarded buses to come to Chukchansi Park and Fresno State University to attend our Chevron Soccer Academy clinics presented by Chevron, Open Goal Project, and Fresno’s United Soccer League team, Fresno FC.
to make the clinics accessible to players from underserved communities and to make the experience a unique one for those players, the weekend was completely free of charge, was led by a number of current and former professional players, included lunch, snacks, and drinks, featured the Chevron STEM Zone where players learned about science through the lens of soccer, and also came with tickets to the Fresno FC game for the boys and the Fresno State women’s game for the girls.
it was an incredible weekend and a big step forward for our mission to open goals, on and off the field for talented young soccer players from underserved communities.
