Hastings and U-Hill Students Practice with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC

At the start of the school year, over 100 students from Hastings and U-Hill Elementary got a special treat. An opportunity to practice with the Whitecaps and soccer stars Russell Teibert and Jay DeMerit.

During the afternoon students learned to run to space, dribble and shoot, all with the help of Whitecaps FC coaches. The practice was part of a community clinic put on by the Caps at UBC following the announcement of their new training facilities.

It was a fantastic experience for the students who ranged in age from Grade 3 to Grade 7.
