Flushing, N.Y. – NYC Parks & Recreation recently hosted the National Girls & Women in Sports Day 2014 event at the Al Oerter Recreation Center and the Queens College women’s soccer team attended to help out and promote the cause.
The day-long event featured sports clinics, fitness classes, prizes, games and guest speakers. Many young girls from the local metropolitan area attended the event with their parent to join in the festivities. For its part, the QC soccer team assisted with the event, worked with the children and passed along a few tips, as they introduced them to soccer, played games, and had fun with all the young girls.
It was a rewarding time for the Knights as Itzel Guzman reflected, “It was a great experience being able to interact with girls that enjoy soccer at a young age.” Her teammate, Nicolette Scrozzo, added, “Being with the kids, teaching and playing the sport we all love was great. I look forward to returning next year.”
Head Coach Carl Christian summed up the event best when he said, “This was a great opportunity for our team to give back to the local community and share their passion with the young girls. It was a great way for them to serve as positive role models for these aspiring athletes.”
The Queens College women’s soccer team finished the 2013 season with an overall record of 11-5-1 and advanced to the East Coast Conference playoffs.
