Boston College's Foley to Participate in NCAA Women's Soccer Clinic
Boston College women's soccer coach Alison Foley is one of 13 collegiate coaches who will conduct a NCAA-sponsored youth soccer clinic on Saturday, December 6 at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro.
Foley is the only coach from the New England region who is participating.
The December 6 clinic is part of the NCAA Youth Education through Sports (YES) program and is being conducted in conjunction with the NCAA Division I Women's Soccer Championship. The clinic will provide youth programming that focuses on participant development and the student-athlete mentoring program. YES clinic participants will discuss with student-athletes topics such as academics, goal-setting, developing mental skills and transferring what they learn in sports to other areas of their lives.
Foley, who just completed her first season as Boston College's head coach, guided the Eagles to a 9-6-2 record. Prior to coming to the Heights, she served four years as assistant women's coach at James Madison University and one year as head coach at Angelo (Texas) State University. A Plymouth, Mass. native, Foley is a 1992 graduate of Keene (N.H.) State College where she enjoyed an All-America playing career.
