Yesterday, Republic FC midfielder Nick Ross, accompanied by the club’s Camps and Clinics coaches, made a very special visit to students at Robla Elementary School. Ross and Republic FC staff led a group of 4th, 5th, and 6th-grade students, teaching them some soccer skills during their afternoon physical education class.
In addition to getting the opportunity to work out with a professional soccer player, those who participated were also gifted soccer balls and a ticket to an upcoming Republic FC match. The visit is a part of the club’s Week of Community Investment ahead of the 2022 season opener.
“There are a lot of soccer players here at this school and they love it. Now we have an outdoor team who had their first game last Friday and they tied 3 to 3. …Health and fitness are huge. They are so important and the pandemic shone the spotlight on how important it is to get outside moving and how it connects to your mental health as well.”Robla PhysEd Teacher Laurie Morrison
