Our Goal Setting Session was led by UFC Goalkeeper, Steward Ceus. He highlighted the importance of setting goals and expressed how goals have allowed him to achieve success both as a professional soccer player and an academic student.
The kids then engaged in an exercise of setting goals for themselves. Each kids wrote a goal for today’s InSports Day, a goal with their teammates and a goal in sports and then shared them with the group.
Craig Mallace, a former professional player for the Minnesota Thunder lead the camp, the athletes were split into 4 groups and each station focused on specific skills including speed, teamwork, and dribbling.
Healthy Eating Session
After the camp, the MATTER team, a non-profit in Minnesota who offers healthy snacks for kids, came and presented the importance of a balanced diet. Each athlete walked away with box full of healthy snacks to take home!
United FC Game
Following the camp, each participant had the opportunity to attend the United FC match vs. the NY Cosmos. The InSports team kept an eye out for athletes who showed sportsmanship, teamwork, and commitment, two where awarded with having the opportunity to be part of the ball delivering ceremony. The day was not over for the camp-goers yet, they were all invited to be part of the parade of champions that took place during half-time.
We are excited to have such great partnerships with organizations in the community. This day would not be possible without the United FC Organization, MATTER, and our awesome volunteers. We look forward to hosting more free opportunities for our community, join us in our mission!
