Recently, 4 female coaches from the USA came down to Singapore to conduct a 5 day soccer clinic.
The Exchange is part of the U.S. Embassy’s broader sports diplomacy initiative to foster greater mutual understanding between the youth of the United States and Singapore. Working with Football Association of Singapore (FAS), the program is specifically tailored for girls to promote women’s empowerment through sports and inspire them through activities such as soccer.
Four former U.S. National Women’s soccer players will conduct the weeklong clinics in Singapore. The coaches are: Janine Szpara, Anna Shortt, Karen Willoughby and Val Henderson. Starting 3 December, they will be conducting several soccer clinics for Singaporean girls ages 12-18 at various Singapore institutions and secondary schools.
It was nice to see this exchange and how they went conducted the clinic for the special children as well. More photos can be found through the US Embassy Singapore facebook page.
