In the last 5 years, our work has centered around Girl Power and inspiring girls to be brave, strong and powerful on and off the field.
This fall, we are expanding this emphasis into our newly launched Player Empowerment Workshops. We’ve heard that parents and players love our empowerment emphasis at camp and “wished it was offered year round.” With our Empowerment Workshops, athletes will have the opportunity to hear from our experienced team around a variety of topics that impact them as individuals on the sports field, as teammates and as members of society.
Our goal is to reach as many players in the area and help empower and inspire them through interactive discussions. Led by Finesse Soccer founder Carrie Fry Robinson and Licensed Professional Counselor and Finesse Soccer Director of Empowerment Bailey Sosa Wilner, these workshops are delivered in a way that resonates with players and make an immediate impact on the individual and team.

RECENT TEAM WORKSHOPS
This past summer, Coach Dustin with the Kansas Rush GA 2010 team approached us to have a discussion with his players about kindness, mental toughness and anti-bullying. We designed an interactive workshop for his team that centered around those topics. The players were attentive, asked great questions and demonstrated to their coach in a follow-up session that they retained and are applying what they learned.
Nobody likes being talked at for an hour, especially kids who have been in school all day, so we made sure to layer in truly interactive moments. More pictures below.
