The Yavapai Soccer Roughriders hosted a free clinic Friday at Mountain Valley Park in Prescott Valley.
Members of the 2014 Yavapai Soccer team helped boys and girls ages five to 16 dribble, kick and pass. In addition, the youth learned basic drills and good, team playmanship.
"We put this on every fall, prior to our season," explained Associate Coach Hugh Bell.
For at least ten years, the team spends time with the youth in the community helping to build better soccer players, Bell said. In turn, "they get a chance to play with these young men," Bell said.
According to the National Junior College Athletic Association, Yavapai College ranks in the third position for the 2014 pre-season Division I men's soccer.
Since 1990, the Roughriders have been ranked in every weekly poll holding the number one position 75 times. Since 1990, Yavapai has captured seven national championships.
Yavapai College will kick off their 26th season with a conference road match in Phoenix and the Roughriders' home opener will take place on Thursday, August 28 versus Scottsdale Community College at Mountain Valley Park in Prescott Valley.
