Heritage Rose Elementary School hosted a free soccer clinic with the Houston Dynamo soccer team, welcoming more than 50 Fort Bend ISD students in grades 1-5. The clinic helped promote the Dynamo Youth Programs’ efforts in helping youth lead a more active lifestyle, while teaching students the fundamentals of soccer.
Parents watched along the sidelines as students learned how to dribble and drop kick a soccer ball, score a goal, and other techniques of the game. Tyenise Blackmon, HRE Parent Center Coordinator, joined Stephanie Kellam, UnitedHealthcare Student Wellness Coordinator, on providing parents with information on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Parents received healthy recipes and material on eating healthy on a budget. Event coordinators also raffled Dynamo game tickets and Kroger gift cards.
“This was the first time that the Houston Dynamos have offered something like this in our District,” said Blackmon. “They were very eager to form a more active partnership with us, and we were excited to be allowed this opportunity.”
